Superman's Birthday

Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. It's a bird, it's a plane, no, it's Superman!
Superman first appeared in "Action Comics," on June 30, 1938. He has many abilities, including superhuman strength, super speed, super durability, regeneration, and flight.
Part of Superman’s success is owed to his unique origin story as an infant refugee from the planet Krypton. Superman, known as Kal-El on Krypton, was a baby when his parents sent him to Earth to escape Krypton’s destruction. He landed on a farm in fictional Smallville, Kansas, and was raised by a farmer and his wife, Jonathan and Martha Kent. As young Clark Kent grew up, he discovered he had special abilities, and he dedicated his life to secretly using his powers to help humanity.
The character was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster when they were still high school students in Cleveland, Ohio, in the early 1930s. With his comic book debut in the June issue of “Action Comics,” published April 18, 1938, Superman became the world’s first superhero, paving the way for the likes of Batman, Spider-Man and Wonder Woman.
