It’s almost hard to believe Superman has reached his 1000th issue in Action Comics, the very comic he made his first appearance, but when you think about it its not that surprising at all. Superman has been around for all my life, he’s been around for all my parent’s lives and for most of my grandparents as well. There are very few people alive today who can remember a time without Superman in pop culture.
Superman’s iconic status is something to celebrate. Not many fictional characters have withstood the test of time and still be as recognizable as he, especially in a medium some considered (and still do) to be a lowbrow form of entertainment. However, whether its through comics, television or film, Superman has remained vastly popular throughout his 80 years.
