Literature: Super Folks
aka: Superfolks
Super Folks is a 1977 book by Robert Mayer, parodying the Super Hero genre in general with a middle-aged, retired superhero. The plot follows David Brinkley, once a superhero eerily similar to Superman, who lost his powers and settled down to be cynical, jaded and world-weary. A resurgence in crime causes him to come out of retirement and try being a superhero once more.

Lots of gratuitous cameos ensue.
