I vaguely recall a 1990s comic where something happened differently, and Clark Kent ended up not becoming a hero who rescues people and inspires Hope, but a sports hero and one of the richest, most bankable men on the planet; he played Basketball, Baseball, and Football, if I remember correctly. Started reading it at a friends place, but never finished.

Can someone identify this story and issue, please?

This is Superman, Inc. (1999).

Superman is adopted by the Sudermans and becomes Dale Suderman, ace sportsman. The comic is explicitly noted to be an Elseworlds comic.

His sporting prowess extends to basketball, baseball, American football and he's also an Olympian.

    He was so good with a baseball bat, some called him simply "The Bat-Man". Jul 13, 2020 at 15:43
