With all the people wanting to submit teasers, why do we get so many repeats?

Like Aarghonauts and Wordmama, I got the first word in my head as coin and tried to build from there. Unfortunately I didn't really pay attention to the title, or I probably would have gone in another direction and maybe have gotten it. Another great teaser Jazz.

I was on the lines of food. loin like sirloin, steak, fillet, etc... maybe I'm hungry...

That was GREAT! Like Superman!

I also didn't notice the title at all, and started at the beginning of the list, desperately trying to make all the words have to do with first- metal: coin, steel, um... then birds: loon, um... and then was interrupted by cats! Finally looked at the hint, and that did it, but still, it wasn't totally without effort once I knew what the theme was!

Good work, thanks for the great teaser!

Using the hint, I got about half right. Missed Lois, Kent and Lane...was too focused on Superman skills Great teaser

Thanks guys for the (mostly) positive feedback. I enjoyed coming up with the idea just as much as you enjoyed working it out.

Don't worry too much about Doehead. The nick and continual bad karma says it all!

Great fun ... thanks! The hint made it easy ... I was getting nowhere without it (still got stumped on two of them though ).

I really enjoyed this teaser. I realize I put STEAM for STEAL (like steam locomotive) and STEEL for Steed but I still got the answer.

OOPS! I did not notice the title or I would not have needed the hint. I better be more observant next time.

For me (and a lot of others is seems) the title gave it away. It was a good idea though.

I agree w/HABS.
