This year marks the 75th birthday of Superman. The Man of Steel was created by American writer Jerry Siegel and Canadian-born American artist Joe Shuster in 1932 and sold to Detective Comics, Inc. (later DC Comics) in 1938. Superman made his first appearance in Action Comics #1 (June 1938) and has since appeared in various radio serials, television programs, films, newspaper strips, and video games.
Easily one of America’s most beloved cultural pop icons he is recognized around the globe despite having gone through many changes over the years. Take a look at all the iterations of Krypton’s Favorite Son and see how many you remember.
Fans of the caped hero are in for a great year. With a new comic series from Scott Snyder and Jim Lee titled Superman Unchained hitting shelves on 6/12/13 and Zach Snyder’s reboot movie, Man Of Steel, coming to theaters just a few days after, we have a lot to look forward too.
