"Sueperman's Big Sister" is a song and a 1980 single by Ian Dury & The Blockheads. Its title purposefully misspells 'Superman' with an extra 'e' to avoid any copyright issues with DC Comics.

Released as a single (BUY 100) to promote Ian Dury & The Blockheads upcoming album Laughter, it was a commercial failure, reaching 51 in the UK pop charts, but the Sueperman's Big Sister / You'll See Glimpses 7" single has the added significance of being Stiff Records' 100th Single. To mark this occasion the record had special labels printed, these labels were copies of Stiff's very first single Nick Lowe's So It Goes / Heart Of The City that had been adjusted as if by someone writing on them with Biro or Black Marker (given Stiff Record's reputation, it's likely this was the actual method) all of the information from the sticker is crossed out and replaced with the correct information for the single (I.e. 'So It Goes' is crossed out and 'Sueperman's Big Sister' is written by it).
