Remember... ONLY Superman can fly

I have been telling about this for years, the Superman costume I had as a kid and the warning label that said "only Superman can fly".

Here are pictures (my apologies to the eBay sellers I took these from):

As soon as I saw the box I remembered it...
And I've always had fond memories of my cape with a picture of Superman on it...
I don't have that costume, but I do have a scar on the top of my left ear when I did indeed insist that I too could fly.  I didn't.  The window did not break my fall, it broke.

My two images of Superman are from the Fifties: George Reeves on television and the comics art of Wayne Boring and similar art on products.
