Rocketed from the doomed planet Krypton, baby Kal-El fell to Earth in a Kansas wheat field, where he was discovered by Jonathan and Martha Kent. Under their guidance, he grew to be a man of morality and power. He grew to be SUPERMAN!
Superman, one of only three superhero characters (along with Batman and Wonder Woman) to be continuously published since his inception in 1938, is known to most Americans through his television and radio shows, movies, cartoons, and… most importantly, comic books.
Superman is the most powerful superhero in the DC Comic’s universe, perhaps in all of comicdom. Virtually invulnerable, with x-ray vision, heat vision, super breath, super strength, super speed and (since the 1950’s) flight. Disguised as mild mannered reporter Clark Kent, Superman struggles to live his dual life. A mundane life as Clark Kent, trying to make his way through the trials and tribulations of modern life and, as Superman, defending the defenseless and protecting the Earth from threats both terrestrial and intergalactic.
Mongul. Doomsday. Lex Luthor. Braniac. Conceived by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster as the world teetered on the brink of World War II, Superman was created as a symbol of truth, justice and the American Way. Many times throughout the second World War, Superman was seen with the American flag, or punching Hitler in the face, or exhorting his readers to buy war bonds. Since then he has become not just a symbol of the American way, but a symbol of hope for humanity.
Called “the big blue boy scout” by his dark ally Batman, Superman, despite being an alien, has come to represent all that is good and just about humanity and our struggle to be a better race. Known and loved by millions across the world, including an entire fan base that has never read a comic book from his numerous radio, television and movie appearances.
