Odd little dream about a comic-book story idea

Had a dream, during an afternoon nap today. In it, I came up with a comic book story idea where Superman fights a villain called the Gamemaster. The Gamemaster would get Superman to play a Dungeons & Dragons type game where rolling the dice to set your character’s skill levels would magically transform your actual skills. In the story, Superman would roll a low number for “strength” resulting in him actually becoming a weakling.

I didn’t dream much further than that, but I figure the story would end up with Jimmy Olson or Lois Lane saving the day because they would have rolled high on some key skills. The style would fit in with the late 60’s to early 70’s style of superhero comics.

It’s a little odd that this dream came up, given that I haven’t played any role-playing games (other than videogames) since I was a kid.
