50 Superman Quotes That Will Save The Day

Superman, the iconic hero of all heroes, has been appearing in comics books since 1938. The creation of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, writer and artist respectively, the DC Comic’s man in blue acts as a shiny, happy counterpoint to Batman’s dark and troubled avenger. Appearing in publications, and on big and small screens right up to the present day, Superman’s popularity shows no signs of waning.

Born on the planet Krypton, and named Kal-El, he was sent to earth by his parents to avoid the planet’s destruction. He landed in Smallville – a name that sums up the idyllic, good ol’ middle American town, which seems to be the destination of many a baddie.

Adopted by a local farming couple, Martha and Jonathan Kent, Kal-El became mild-mannered Clark Kent, who, as he left childhood behind, started to develop some rather unusual talents, including super strength, super x-ray vision, and super tough impervious skin. Plus the worrying desire to wear super, duper tight leotards and big, highly visible underpants. Advised by his surprisingly accepting parents to use his abilities for the good of humanity, he did what no teenage boy ever did, and took their advice!
