Brief History of Superman

Superman was originally created by artist Joe Shuster and writer Jerry Siegel in 1933. They eventually sold the character to DC Comics in 1938 and he made his first appearance in Action Comics in June 1938. Superman’s success pioneered the emergence of the superhero genre as a dominant category of American comic books.

According to the origin story of this great comic character, he was born to his father Jor-El on planet Krypton and named Kal-El. But a few moments before Krypton was destroyed, his father transported him to earth with a rocket. Thereafter, a Kansas farmer found and adopted him. He was named Clark Kent and together with his wife, the farmer raised him and gave him a very strong moral upbringing.

At an early age, Superman began to demonstrate some extraordinary abilities such as superhuman strength, endurance, and speed. He also displayed the ability to fly, produce freezing breathe, and had extraordinary visual powers like x-ray vision. Superman lives in a fictional city in America called Metropolis. He works as a journalist for Daily Planet using his secret identity as Clark Kent. His lover is Lois Lane and his main enemy is the supervillian called Lex Luthor.

Superman has been declared to be the best comic book hero of all time and the character has served as a blueprint for hundreds of superheros that have been created after him. Superman’s strong impact on the United States has been studied by scholars and social theorists. Even the picture of the current president of the United States, Barak Obama, has been printed wearing a Superman vest and pasted on a building in California.
