Call him Krypto-Nate.

Nate Robinson tugged on Superman's cape — and won.

The diminutive New York Knicks guard beat defending champion Dwight Howard of Orlando in an electrifying slam dunk contest on Saturday night, winning 52 percent of fans' votes.

Clad in an all-green Knicks uniform with green shoes, Robinson used Howard as a prop in the final round, springboarding over the 6-foot-11 center to jam.

"Dwight was a great sport letting me dunk over him," said Robinson, who also won in 2006.
