Michael Phelps = Superman?

Michael Phelps showed that he might not be from this planet after winning seven gold medals in seven events at the World Championships. The dynamo, who bears a striking resemblance to one Clark Kent, set five gold medals among his seven gold medals. Sadly he was denied an attempt to compete for a eighth gold medal when the US team was DQed in a relay. I'm sure he will do okay with lovelies like Inge de Bruijn, pictured above, to keep him company. Oh and the $210,000 he won from his gold medal haul. Thus far it appears that Phelps' only weakness may not be Kryptonite, but consuming massive quantities of booze and trying to drive a motor vehicle. Phelps says that he is done with his drunk driving career but I find it hard to believe that someone so competitive could give up on something so quickly after a setback.
