John Byrne Draws...
The Powerpuff Girls & “Superman” vs Mojo Jojo by John Byrne.
John was asked if it was true he did a commission of The Powerpuff Girls and this was his reply:

T’wasn’t a commission, t’was a pinup. 
And an unfortunate illustration of just how f**ked up DC can be sometimes.
Hearing that I was a fan of the Powerpuff Girls, the editor of their book contacted me about doing a pinup. I said Sure! and suggested a scene of them dreaming about “realistic” versions of themselves teaming with Superman as the Professor read them a Superman comic as a bedtime story. This was approved, and drawn — and then the Higher Ups at DC got a look at it, and killed it, saying that the Powerpuff Girls office did not have the “rights” to use Superman.
Think about that.
