Come to the Henry County Library and check out our high flying Superman display. Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. He first appeared in Action Comics#1 in April 1938. Superman was an immediate hit, appearing in comics, newspapers, on the radio, and of course on TV and in the movies. Superman, whose true name is Kal-El, is an alien from the planet Kryton, who is sent to Earth by his parents during the destruction of Kryton. Fueled by the sun, Superman has many powers including super strength, flight, the ability to shoot lasers out of his eyes, and many more. He is one of the founding members of the Justice League and is often portrayed protecting the city of Metropolis from the evil machination of Lex Luther. By day he is depicted as mild mannered Clark Kent, a reporter for the Daily Planet. His co-worker, Lois Lane, is his love interest. To this day Superman is one of the most iconic super heroes of all time. Come learn more about The Man of Steel at the henry County Library.
