@betatesthighlander1
But the current version of Supeman has rip offs of him so I think his point stands.

just because something is ripped off, it doesn't mean that it isn't itself a rip-off

It's fairly obvious that Superman was greatly influenced by Hugo Danner.

Captain Marvel (Yes thats his name not Shazam) is not really a complete rip off of Superman, in fact Superman ripped off the ability to fly from him. Yes they are both super strong, super fast and super durable and look similar outside of those superficial similarities they are completely different. Superman is an Alien, Cap is human, Superman gets his power from the sun,Cap is powered by ancient Gods, Superman has Heat Vision, Ice Breath, X-Ray Vision, Telescopic vision, Microscopic vision, Cap has none of those. They have far more differences than similarities.
