Day 130: Superman/Clark Kent







Superman is a fictional character, a comic book superhero appearing in publications by DC Comics, widely considered to be an American cultural icon. Created by American writer Jerry Siegel and Canadian-born artist Joe Shuster in 1932 and sold to Detective Comics, Inc. in 1938, the character first appeared in Action Comics #1 (June 1938) and subsequently appeared in various radio serials, television programs, films, newspaper strips, and video games. With the success of his adventures, Superman helped to create the superhero genre and establish its primacy within the American comic book.

The original story of Superman relates that he was born Kal-El on the planet Krypton, before being rocketed to Earth as an infant by his scientist father Jor-El, moments before Krypton's destruction. Discovered and adopted by a Kansas farmer and his wife, the child is raised as Clark Kent and imbued with a strong moral compass. Very early he started to display superhuman abilities, which upon reaching maturity he resolved to use for the benefit of humanity.

Wow, this is really super!
Is it me, or is there no email for contact on your site?
Anyways, I'd like to recommend Toy-a-Day in the next issue of German family mag LUNA and wanted to ask for some pictures in print quality. You could send them to susanne@onthesubjectof.de. My deadline is on sunday, so I hope to hear from you.

Greetings from Berlin,

Susanne
