2 Wogblog articles, 1 with some info on that 
John photo session, the other connections between The Beatles and Superman.

The Lennon Superman t-shirt was taken in 1966 by Alan Aldridge for the cover of 'The Penguin John Lennon' book (comprising of 'In His Own Write' & 'A Spaniard In The Works). One of the comments in the first link writes that the initial concept of the photo shoot was to dress John up as a Penguin!!!

 

A bit more searching brings up that Alan designed the covers of both volumes of The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics, a few more details and some example of his work (include those involving The Beatles) can be found here.

 

Interesting info @meanmistermustard , thanks for the research. Was very surprised I had never seen the photo before. Also @Ahhh Girl thanks for the update. I think I might stick with this one for now enjoy having the color. Also John as superman with a birdcage is just funny to me.

If you're not stuck on the Abbey Road crosswalk theme, this one could work...
