Superlopez is a Spanish comic book character created by Jan in 1973, a parody of Superman.

Born Jo-Con-Él (roughly translated as Damn-the-brat) on the planet Chitón (Old spanish slang meaning 'Shut up!') much like Superman's home planet of Krypton, he leaves his planet when he enters a spaceship and presses a button, an accident that sends him to Earth. He was raised by adoptive parents in Barcelona and concealed himself under the identity of office-worker Juan Lopez (which is actually author Jan's real name). He works with his girlfriend, the bad-tempered Luisa Lanas (parody of Lois Lane); Jaime González Lidenbrock (Superlopez's not so pally Jimmy Olsen); and his demanding, unnamed boss (a reference to Perry White).

Other recurring characters include Inspector Holmez (a reference to Sherlock Holmes), an excessively bureaucratic police officer who suspects everyone; Martha Holmez, the Inspector's daughter, and computer geek Chico Humitsec.

Recurring villains include the evil professor Escariano Avieso (probably the main Big Bad); Lady Araña (“Lady Spider”); the gangster Al Trapone (a reference to Al Capone); and the mob boss Refuller D'Abastos.

In the early days of the character, Superlopez was member and leader of the team known as El Supergrupo (The Supergroup or Superteam). Team members included El Mago (The Wizard, a parody of Dr. Strange); Capitan Hispania (Captain Spain, a parody of Captain America); Latas (Tin-guy, a parody of Iron Man); Bruto (The Brute, a parody of The Thing); and la Chica Increíble (Incredible Girl, a parody of the token generic superheroine). These spent more time fighting one another over the leadership of the Supergrupo than fighting evil.
