Happy 75th Anniversary Superman

On April 18th 1938, Action Comics #1 arrived in stores. This comic, by Jerry Siegal and Joe Shuster, marked the first appearance of the worlds first and greatest superhero, Superman! Since that first issue, Superman has gone on to conquer not only the world of comics, but radio, television, Broadway, movies...and just about anything else you can think of. It would be hard to find a person on this planet that hasn't at least heard of him. It was the popularity of Superman that led to the creation of the superhero genre with literally thousands of characters created over the last 75 years. So...Happy Birthday Superman!!! Actually, Happy Birthday to the entire Superhero genre!
