Possibly the most famous comic book character ever created, Superman first appeared in the pages of National (later DC) Comics' Action Comics in 1938. The super-powered savior of Metropolis had already appeared several times both in live-action and animated form before Warner Brothers reunited him fellow DC Comics creation Batman for The New Batman/Superman Adventures. The New Superman Adventures was the half-hour segment of that show dedicated to the man with the "S" on his chest.

Superman was born Kal-El on the doomed planet Krypton. Parents Jor-El and Lara sent him to safety on earth, where the yellow sun gave him superhuman strength, heat vision, freezing breath, and the ability to fly.

Adopted by small-town humans and renamed Clark Kent, Superman eventually took a job in big-city Metropolis as a reporter for the Daily Planet. Clarkís Daily Planet associates included publisher Perry White, loyal buddy/photographer Jimmy Olsen, beautiful gossip columnist Angela Chen, and fellow reporter Lois Lane, none of whom know of Clark/Supermanís dual identity.

Supermanís only weakness was exposure to chunks of his home planet, called Kryptonite. Knowing this, villains such as evil genius Lex Luthor, Supermanís twisted semi-clone Bizarro, and Kryptonian criminals Jax-Ur and Mala had to come up with clever ways to rid themselves of earthís most powerful hero.

They never succeeded. In cartoons, in comics, and in feature films, Superman continues the fight on crime, never surrendering their quest for truth, peace, and justice.
