Comments: Created by Gotlib, Alexis and Lob. Apparently "the 3 of them got the same idea at the same time. They didn't contend and shared the character. It was published in Fluide Glacial."
For some reason the Superdupont series had just the first book translated into Dutch.
Thanks to Gérard Courtial for informing me about this character and providing information about him. Thanks to Cédric Pétiau for providing images of him. And thanks to Theodoor Westerhof for additional information.
Gérard Morvan notes that "one of his adventures was drawn by none other than Neal Adams. It showed Superdupont being called as an expert to the United States in order to thwart a crisis threatening Californian wines. Of course, he met various parodies of DC and Marvel heroes in the course of the story, which was published first in Fluide Glacial, and then in a softcover album titled "Superdupont: Oui Nide Iou". "
'Seth Hyperions' adds "Superdupont is meant to be an humoristic version of the worst French people, the very nationalistic ones."
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
any other Super people
