The Man of Steel has been patrolling the skies since 1938, when DC Comics unveiled the creation of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster in the first Superman Comic.
Possessed of superhuman strength, the ability to fly and see through women’s clothes, Superman was an alien baby rocketed to Earth while his home planet of Krypton exploded.
