David Robert Jones, professionally known as David Bowie, was a musician, singer, and songwriter who enjoyed massive success in 1970s and 1980s as a pop and rock artist.

Bowie died on January 10, 2016, and a little under a year after his death, in January of 2017, he was compared in the Metropolis Post to the superhero Superman due to the fact that both of them died tragically, and both of them were famous around the world. The Post even inquired that Bowie may have been alien himself, and that he didn't die, but merely returned to his homeworld.
