Superman is the brainchild of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster who first envisioned the character in 1932 and later had his first appearance in Action Comics #1 in June 1938. What Jerry and Joe did not know at the time was that they had created a character that would become the signature icon of DC Comics and the most universally recognized hero in human history.

Since 1938, the character of Superman/Clark Kent has appeared in every imaginable media form including television, film, novelizations, and even a Broadway show.

Being Superman is the childhood fantasy of every little boy and girl (they of course want to be Supergirl). He is an enduring emblem of the American dream, the young immigrant who comes to the United States, embraces the culture and makes something of himself and enriches his adopted nation. He is a classical hero in the modern age who fights criminals, rescues the helpless and has a sense of morals and justice as strong and unshakeable as he is.

Since 1998, the Superman Super Site's mission statement has been to bring you all the latest news, updates, and information pertaining to the Man of Steel and the Superman universe in general.

It is a mission we are proud to maintain for all the fellow Superman fans of the world and everyone who visits our site because, without you, we would not exist.

    Superman Musical Coming to Oregon Stage

    Posted on January 12, 2017 by Neil Cole

    The Ross Ragland Theater in Klamath Falls, OR will host a production of the Broadway musical, "It's a Bird... It's a Plane... It's SUPERMAN!" as part of their Teen Theater program.

    The musical is an action-packed glimpse into the life of DC Comics’ most forthright, eager, and famous hero with a tongue-in-cheek script by Robert Benton and David Newman (who went on to write "Bonnie and Clyde" and the 1978 blockbuster film, "Superman: The Movie").

    Featuring a much-lauded score written by "Bye Bye Birdie's" Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, the musical pokes fun at the American superhero whose unwavering morality, fidelity, and loyalty make him a bit of a dull cracker.

    The original production was directed by Harold Prince; choreographed by Ernest Flatt and starred Jack Cassidy, Bob Holiday and Linda Lavin. It opened at Alvin Theatre on March 29, 1966 and ran for 129 performances.

    The Ross Ragland Theater's production of the musical will be featured on January 20th, 21st, 27th and 28th at 7:30PM as well as two matinee performances on January 22nd and 29th at 2:00PM.

    Tickets start at $15 with student and senior discounts available. For more information, please visit RRTheater.org.

    NECA have released the following new packaging photos of their upcoming "Superman vs Muhammad Ali" action figure set which begins shipping to stores at the end of the month:

    One of the most famous matches of all time comes to action figure form!

    In 1978, legendary boxer Muhammad Ali proved that he truly was “the greatest of all time” by defeating the strongest man on Earth – Superman. Far from a grudge match, this battle in the pages of DC Comics’ historic Superman vs. Muhammad Ali would ultimately set the two up to save the planet from an alien invasion. Now for the first time ever, that iconic team-up comes to action figure form in a stylized set that pays tribute to the philanthropist, social activist and three-time World Heavyweight Champion.

    Both 7” scale figures have over 25 points of articulation and feature comic-stylized deco based on Neal Adams’ spectacular cover art. Superman includes alternate ungloved hands.

    The "Superman vs Muhammad Ali" action figure set is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.

    One of the most well-regarded superhero films of all time, Superman was a box-office smash when it rocketed to Earth in 1978. The last son of the dead planet Krypton, Kal-El (Christopher Reeve) is found as a baby by Jonathan (Glenn Ford) and Martha Kent (Phyllis Thaxter) when his spaceship crashes just outside of Smallville, USA. Given the name "Clark" by his adopted parents, the boy grows up strong in the American heartland, developing amazing powers under the light of the yellow sun. One day, Clark finds a glowing crystal, and with it finds out about his alien heritage, the knowledge imparted to him by his birth father, Jor-El (Marlon Brando). The boy becomes a man, and moves to Metropolis to work for the Daily Planet newspaper, finding love in Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) and danger in the form of criminal genius Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman).

    Admission is free for children aged 12 & under and $6.00 for members, $7.00 for seniors, and $10.00 for non-members. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit MayfairTheatre.ca.

    About Justice League Dark:

    When innocent civilians begin committing unthinkable crimes across Metropolis, Gotham City and beyond, Batman must call upon mystical counterparts to eradicate this demonic threat to the planet. Enter Justice League Dark, reluctantly led by the Hellblazer himself, John Constantine. Like Batman, Constantine is a cunning, often cynical loner who is the best at his chosen profession – but quickly realizes the sinister forces plaguing the planet will require help from other supernatural alliances. Forming a new “league” with sorceress Zatanna, otherworldly Deadman, and Jason Blood and his powerful alter ego Etrigan the Demon, this team of Dark Arts specialists must unravel the mystery of Earth’s supernatural plague and contend with the rising, powerful villainous forces behind the siege – before it’s too late for all of mankind.

    Actor Matt Ryan, who set the standard for the role of Constantine on the Warner Bros. live-action television series, returns to the role in animated form alongside Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) as Batman, Camilla Luddington (Grey’s Anatomy) as Zatanna, Nicholas Turturro (NYPD Blue, Blue Bloods) as Deadman, Ray Chase (Final Fantasy XV videogame) as Jason Blood/Etrigan, Roger R. Cross (24, Arrow) as John Stewart/Swamp Thing, Jeremy Davies (Justified, Constantine) as Ritchie Simpson, Rosario Dawson (Daredevil, Luke Cage, Sin City) as Wonder Woman, Jerry O’Connell (Stand By Me, Crossing Jordan) as Superman, Enrico Colantoni (Flashpoint, Veronica Mars) as Felix Faust, and Alfred Molina (The Da Vinci Code, Spider-Man 2) as Destiny.

    Justice League Dark is directed by Jay Oliva (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns). Story by J.M. DeMatteis and Ernie Altbacker (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) and teleplay by Ernie Altbacker. Sam Register is Executive Producer. Benjamin Melniker & Michael Uslan (The Dark Knight trilogy) are co-executive producers. James Tucker (Batman Bad Blood, Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders) is Supervising Producer.

    Produced by Warner Premiere, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, Justice League Dark will be distributed February 7, 2017 by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-ray™ Deluxe Giftset (featuring an exclusive Constantine figurine), Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD. The film will be available to own on Digital HD starting January 24, 2017.

    Justice League Assembles in Latest Photo

    Posted on January 11, 2017 by Neil Cole

    The photo features Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Ezra Miller as The Flash, and Jason Momoa as Aquaman:

    Noticeably missing from the line-up is Henry Cavill as Superman who, at the time this scene takes place in the film, has apparently not yet returned from the dead.

    Actor Peter Gadiot has landed the role of the iconic 5th dimensional character Mr. Mxyzptlk on "Supergirl".

    Gadiot previously starred in the role of Cyrus on the short-lived ABC television series "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland". Other acting credits include the 2013 film "The Forbidden Girl," MTV's "Hot Mess" and the British series "My Spy Family".

    Gadiot will be the latest actor to play the role of Mr. Mxyzptlk which has previously been portrayed by Howie Mandel on "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman," Trent Ford on "Smallville," and Gilbert Gottfried on "Superman: The Animated Series".

    Mr. Mxyzptlk first appeared in Superman #30 (September, 1944) and was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. He is usually presented as a trickster, in the classical mythological sense, in that he enjoys tormenting Superman.

    In most of his appearances in DC Comics, he can be stopped only by tricking him into saying or spelling his own name backwards (Kltpzyxm - "kel-tip-zix-um"), which will return him to his home in the 5th dimension and keep him there for a minimum of ninety days.

    The Superman Super Site is pleased to offer one lucky individual the opportunity to win a hardcover copy of "Superman: The Persistence of an American Icon".

    After debuting in 1938, Superman soon became an American icon. But why has he maintained his iconic status for nearly 80 years? And how can he still be an American icon when the country itself has undergone so much change?

    Superman: Persistence of an American Icon examines the many iterations of the character in comic books, comic strips, radio series, movie serials, feature films, television shows, animation, toys, and collectibles over the past eight decades. Demonstrating how Superman’s iconic popularity cannot be attributed to any single creator or text, comics expert Ian Gordon embarks on a deeper consideration of cultural mythmaking as a collective and dynamic process. He also outlines the often contentious relationships between the various parties who have contributed to the Superman mythos, including corporate executives, comics writers, artists, nostalgic commentators, and collectors.

    Armed with an encyclopedic knowledge of Superman’s appearances in comics and other media, Gordon also digs into comics archives to reveal the prominent role that fans have played in remembering, interpreting, and reimagining Superman’s iconography. Gordon considers how comics, film, and TV producers have taken advantage of fan engagement and nostalgia when selling Superman products. Investigating a character who is equally an icon of American culture, fan culture, and consumer culture, Superman thus offers a provocative analysis of mythmaking in the modern era.

    To enter for a chance to win, simply answer the Superman trivia question listed in the right hand column along with your name, email address, and verification. Then click the "Enter Here to Win" button to submit your entry.

    Six Flags Over Georgia is set to open a new ride and park area featuring comic book characters such as Superman and Batman for its 50th birthday in Cobb County next year.

    Park President Dale Kaetzel announced the park’s plans to expand its Metropolis Park during a media tour of the park’s newest ride — Justice League: Battle for Metropolis — on Tuesday.

    The Justice League is a group of DC Comic superheroes including Superman and Batman, and Metropolis is the fictional home of Superman.

    The park announced the 22,000-square-foot indoor and interactive thrill ride, Justice League: Battle for Metropolis, in September and invited members of the media to tour the construction site — the former home of the Dodge City Bumper Car attraction. The ride is located next to the Superman: Ultimate Flight rollercoaster in the Metropolis area of the park.

    The new Metropolis Park will take over the patriotic Cotton States area of the park. The Great American Scream Machine, Sky Coaster and Blue Hawk will now be part of the Lickskillet section of the park, said Gene Petriello, Six Flags communications manager.

    “Envision no more Cotton States. Cotton States will become Metropolis,” Kaetzel said.

    The area will be transformed with a new layout, updated signage and color scheme. Kaetzel said the new section’s construction has already started, and more aggressive demolition will begin in January.

    The new Metropolis area is set to include a refurbished food court, new ground foundation and an updated midway game area. About 40 feet of the existing gaming area will be torn down to accommodate the queue line for the park’s newest ride, Kaetzel said, which will include shady areas and water misting machines to keep visitors cool during the summer months.

    “We’re going to make this a place where people want to stay and eat and play, and of course, ride Justice League: Battle for Metropolis over and over and over again,” he said.

    Superman: Ultimate Flight — one of the park’s main attractions — will be repainted for the 2017 season for the first time since it opened in 2002, according to Kaetzel. The roller coaster is set to have three cars running throughout the year to increase its rider capacity.

    “Superman will look brand new. This whole area will get a tremendous makeover,” he said. “We’re going to do justice to the Justice League in the new Metropolis at Six Flags Over Georgia.”

    Petriello said the new Metropolis Park’s anticipated opening is scheduled for next year’s Holiday in Park in December, which will also be expanded.

    Kaetzel said the new additions will make Six Flags Over Georgia the only theme park in North America with three areas featuring DC Comics characters — DC Super Friends family area, Gotham City and the new Metropolis Park.
