The first 'Super-Man' created by comic strip authors Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster in 1932 was a megalomaniac scientist, but they later reassigned the name to a hero character and published the first Superman story in 1938. This history of the 'Man of Steel' is also the story of the creators, designers and performers who have shaped the character, and an analysis of how Superman has reflected the mood of America over more than 70 years.
