Superman is known to be a hero that was originally from Krypton planet and was named, Kal. He is known as Kal, but actually, he is called “El “by his birth parents. Sadly though, he was sent off to planet earth in a small spaceship moments prior to the destruction of the Krypton due to a natural catastrophe. Kal – El’s ship landed in a countryside in America, and farmers, Martha and Jonathan, named him Clark Kent, and raised him. He displayed various superhuman abilities from a young age, such as super strength and bullet-proof skin. His parents taught him to use his abilities to help humankind, which led him to protect Metropolis. This is what makes his “super.”

The one who wrote his story and character is none other than Jerome Siegel as mentioned earlier. Jerome Siegel was born on October 17, 1914, and died on January 28, 1996, at the age of 81. Joseph Shuster (Joe Shuster) was the one who worked alongside Jerome Siegel to make Superman possible. He was born on July 10, 1914, and died on July 30, 1992. Sadly, in the 1970s, his career as the illustrator of Superman would fail because of his partial blindness.

Again, Superman is a fictional character of comic strips featured by DC Comics. This publication was what started Superman’s first appearance. Which is how he got more well known along the way and which also led to numerous movies and some serials about him created.
