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.

Aldo Jones of Youtube channel Weird Trailers has put together a fan-edit of the "Justice League" trailer which originally premiered at the 2016 San Diego Comic Con.

The edited version of the trailer features a hilarious look at the film complete with appearances by Danny Trejo, the Ghostbusters, and even Santa Claus. Check it out below:

In less than 10 days, the National Football League will kick off the 2016 season and football fans across the world will rejoice.

Ben Affleck has posted the following footage via Twitter of the DC Comics villain Deathstroke which is possibly taken from the upcoming "Justice League" movie:

Deathstroke the Terminator (aka Slade Wilson) debuted in 1980 and was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez as a super-assassin and primary antagonist of the Teen Titans.

Considering that Affleck was the one to post the footage, it's possible that Deathstroke will only cameo in "Justice League" and go on to be the main villain in Affleck's solo Batman movie.

Actor Manu Bennett previously played the character on the television series "Arrow". However, it is currently unknown at this time who portrays Deathroke in the film.

Alter Ego Superman Formal Wear Suit

Posted on August 25, 2016 by Neil Cole have announced a new line of men's formal wear exclusively licensed by DC Comics and featuring an Alter Ego Superman Suit.

Faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, and... totally dressed to the nines. Clark Kent probably wouldn't show up to a fancy Daily Planet after-party in spandex, but we're pretty sure he would show up in this exclusive Alter Ego Superman suit for men.

With costume details taken from the iconic film Man of Steel, it's a fashion forward way to bring Superman into the 21st century with eye-catching design and comfortable style. The sublimated costume printing on the jacket and matching pants means you can still go toe-to-toe with Lex Luthor, but you’ll maintain a suave look so you can still attend the big Metropolis gala with Lois Lane without having to change first. A small hint of your true self will show through the top of the jacket, but if you choose to unfasten the top coat buttons you will show the world the full Kryptonian symbol for Truth, Justice And The American Way on the included graphic print button up shirt.

This suit’s features—fully lined slim cut jacket, pants, and a solid bowtie, make it the epitome of modern Metropolis sophistication.

The new suit just recently launched for pre-order on and is expected to arrive in early November.

The Alter Ego Superman Suit retails for $299.99 but anyone who orders during the pre-sale will receives a discount.

The O Cinema Wynwood in Miami, FL will host a special screening of "Superman: II" on Tuesday, September 13th at 9:00PM (EST) in celebration of the films 35th Anniversary.

Superman (Christopher Reeve) foils the plot of terrorists by hurtling their nuclear device into outer space, but the bomb's shock waves free the Kryptonian villain General Zod (Terence Stamp) and his henchmen Ursa (Sarah Douglas) and Non (Jack O'Halloran) from their imprisonment in the Phantom Zone. Traveling to Earth, they threaten the planet with destruction at the same time that Superman decides to renounce his superpowers in order to live a normal life as Clark Kent with his new love, Lois Lane (Margot Kidder).

Prior to the screening of the film, attendees are invited to stop by the 80s Cards vintage trading card table in the O Cinema, where original packs of movie trading cards will be available for purchase from the 70's, 80's, and 90's.
