In 1938, two aspiring comic strip talents, Jerry Siegal and Joe Shuster, published a character that would create a new genre of fantasy, Superman, the first superhero. This film explores the creation of the character and his subsequent evolution over the decades through various media. With various interviews of noted creative luminaries, the film shows how the character has adapted to the times and bounced back from times when he felt irrelevant to always regain his prominence as one of the great heroes of popular culture.

And, just like actor Sean Connery (in the 1960s) playing the James Bond character - I personally think that actor George Reeves (in the 1950s) playing the Superman character was the absolute best of all when cast in his specific genre. To me - These 2 men epitomized their characters perfectly.
From comic books, to radio, to cartoons, to TV, and to movies - This entertaining, pop culture documentary covers the entire history of Superman who (back in 1932) suddenly became the world's very first comic-book superhero.
Superman (who was created by Joe Shuster and Jerry Siegel) is definitely one all-American hero who has certainly had a pretty good track record with his many fans as his popularity has managed to endure, steadily, throughout these many decades.
So - If you are something of a Superman enthusiast - This 110-minute slice of total hero-worship is certainly worth a view.
