The impact that Superman has had on popular culture cannot be overstated. He was the first super-powered costumed crimefighter, and the one that started it all. Whether you’re a fan or not, love him or hate him you have to respect him. Without The Man of Steel there may be no DC Comics, or even DC Comics News for that matter!
The success of Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, and all the other DC Superstars may not have been possible without Action Comics #1 and the debut of Superman.
This is a a superhero who’s known and loved the whole world over and one of only three fictional characters who’s had new stories created about him for over eighty consecutive years! That’s a super achievement, if ever there was one.
