TMI?

So, Niles "No, I'm Not Frasier's Brother" Caulder has a male Kryptonian held prisoner, and is doing some pretty nasty dissection & other experiments on him to try to divine the source of their power.

His friendly computer gives him an update on the research:

Ummmm...let's see...urrr...identical to humans "with the exception of certain reproductive organs."

OK, er...well, it's a male prisoner, so those certain reproductive organs would have to be...

*Cough* Ahem Yes, well, different how, exactly? I mean...uh...blush...

...

OK, I give up. Someone else has to deal with this little (?) conundrum.

Thank you, Keith Giffen, for putting all sorts of strange and not at all decent ideas into my head in this week's Doom Patrol #14.

I'm guessing that's a reference to Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex?

Ah, but the premise of Niven's piece was that Superman's reproductive equipment was the same as humans--just super-powered.
