The Best Worst of 90's Cover Gimmicks Week, Day #5

There has been a wide variety of cover gimmicks over the years, but here's one that I don't know if I've ever seen used again...the removable translucent cover!

The Adventures Of Superman #500

I can't decide if they left this alone in deference to the historic significance of this issue? Or if it's just a rather lackluster gimmick.

I'm guessing the latter, as once you remove the translucent cover and put it back into place it sort of loses it's appeal. Yeah, those are air bubbles and aren't supposed to be part of the ethereal effect of Superman hovering between life and death.
