Wow... I wonder what your teacher might have said if u had drawn Captain America.
Actually that's a common misconception. Übermensch originates from the ideas of Nietzsche, who said that people were sheep being shepherded by weak ideas such as religion and that strong individuals, or Übermenschen, had a responsibility to step forward and assert their will over the weak. The term has since changed meaning slightly where today it means more of just anyone with great power, like a demigod or superhero. Bottom line: Superman is an Übermensch.
Are you sure you didn't accidentally draw SuperHitler? It's actually a common mistake.
There must be a bug going around affecting teachers lately, they seem to be getting more and more ignorant by the hour.
