How Does Superman Shave

LOS ANGELES — How does Superman shave? If he is a “Man of Steel,” impervious to nearly everything, what could possibly remove that formidable stubble?

Brooks Barnes, New York Times re: Gillette ad campaign
Every Gillette/Man of Steel subway ad reminds me of Superman IV, in which a strand of Superman's hair is exhibited holding up a one ton weight. Lex Luthor clips off the hair using a pair of wirecutters. Conclusion: Superman shaves using Lex Luthor's wirecutters.
