Superman may have tried to save Metropolis this summer, but Mark Cuban tried to get a different Superman to save Dallas in his own short film.

Cuban, who owns the Dallas Mavericks, has released a cartoon video the team made in an attempt to sign Dwight Howard.

The video is a clear homage to the Man of Steel ideal, with Howard even donning a Superman cape at one point. Perhaps Cuban should have enlisted the help of a few other superheroes, since Howard spurned his offer and signed with the Houston Rockets.

Still, Cuban's efforts in cinema aren't too shabby.
