It took a lot less than Kryptonite to fell this Man of Steel. Police told the Daily Hampshire Gazette that a man dressed in a Superman costume was treated for a head injury after being punched in the face late Wednesday night, apparently when he refused to get out of the way of a motorist trying to enter the driveway of a home. Amherst detective Richard MacLean said witnesses told investigators that Superman, who was not identified but said to be of college age, had been trying to stir up trouble in the area. Police said the man was knocked to the sidewalk by the punch. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
