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.

The Superman Celebration Committee is proud to announce the addition of the "Save The Massac Benefit Auction" and comedian Scott Long to this year's ever increasing line-up of festivities.

Long - who has toured the country non-stop for 2 decades, performing in 40 different states - will be performing his latest show "Good Dad...Not a Great Dad" which features a hilariously edgy, but sometimes poignant exploration of having twins at 40 years old.

The performance will take place on Saturday, June 13th at the Baymont Theatre prior to the "Save The Massac Benefit Auction" which will feature Superman, Superhero & Villain, and other comic collectables and treasures.

Tickets to the Scott Long comedy show are $20 each and include admission to the auction. Auction only tickets are also available for $10 each. A cash bar will be available during both the comedy show and auction while hors d'oeuvres will be served during the auction only.

All proceeds from the auction will go to benefit the historic Massac Theatre located in downtown Metropolis, IL and it's restoration. Doors will open at 7PM. Scott Long takes the stage at 7:30PM. Auction will begin approximately at 9PM.

Save The Massac Group is accepting Superhero related items for the auction and a receipt will be provided for tax purposes. For More information contact Lisa Gower at 618-524-7986 or contact the Metro Chamber at 618-524-2714.

    The latest rumor concerning key storyline elements from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" comes from JoBlo and indicates that Lex Luthor will don his iconic green and purple battle armor which has been featured many times in comics and animation during various encounters with the Man of Steel.

    Here's an excerpt from the article:

    With the main conflict being between Bats and Supes initially, the true evil will of course reveal itself and many have wondered if we'll get a man of "talk" or a man of "action" in this new version of Luthor. Well, it appears we'll be getting both. According to a very trusted and reliable source, not only will Lex be the main villain, but he will also get in on the action... and will do so wearing his trademark green/purple WARSUIT! That's right, we will finally be seeing Lex don the armor he's worn for decades in the comics and various animated series/films. How will it look exactly? Our source says it will be very much like the many variations we've seen in the past and will obviously fit the style and look of the film (and DCCU films in general). Lex will don the suit for at least part of the film, but it's unclear if it's just in the finale.

    This news comes hot on the heels of the recently resurrected old rumor that Doomsday will be featured in the film as a re-animated General Zod.

    Whether or not this latest rumor concerning the film's storyline pans out remains to be seen and, as always, should be taken with a grain of salt until such time Warner Bros. makes an official announcement.

    "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is scheduled to premiere in US theaters on March 25, 2016.

    Among the new shows set to debut during the 2015-16 season will be DC'S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW which will premiere in mid-season. The network also released the following detailed description for the new series as well as the first official cast photo:

    When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?

    The original art for the cover of Superman #12 (DC, 1941) by Fred Ray – the earliest piece of art from the comic book series to ever surface – saved from the trash bin more than 70 years ago by legendary Batman artist Jerry Robinson, will make its first ever public auction appearance as the centerpiece of Heritage Auctions' May 28-30, 2015 Comics Signature Auction.

    The cover, one of the most iconic Superman covers of the Golden Age, shows the Man of Steel marching arm and arm with two of America's brave sailors and soldiers, ready to defend their country against the Axis threat. It was the first depiction of America’s armed servicemen on the cover of this title, though certainly not the last.

    Equally as important is the fact that one of the greatest Batman artists of all time, Jerry Robinson – who was also a close friend of Ray’s – asked DC Comics for the art after the issue had published. Robinson passed away in 2011, kept the art for more than 70 years. It has been consigned to auction by his family.

    “Not only was Jerry Robinson simply an amazing artist,” said Joe Mannarino, Director of Comics & Comic Art at Heritage New York, “he was also a visionary collector. He was gathering and keeping his own art, and that of his friends in the business, at a time when no one thought anything at all of it.”

    At the dawn of the comics business, original comic art was considered useless and usually thrown away once an issue was printed. Time has proven Robinson’s impulse and excellent eye absolutely correct, as the best examples of original comic art routinely bring healthy five and six figure prices and the prime examples of Golden Age DC Comic cover art that still exist are very few in number and mostly sequestered in private collections.

    CBS today unveiled its 2015-2016 primetime lineup, featuring 22 returning series and seven new shows including 'SUPERGIRL' which will star actress Melissa Benoist in the title role based on the DC Comics superhero.

    According to the press release, 'SUPERGIRL' will premiere this November on Monday evenings at 8:00PM. The network also released the following detailed description for the highly anticipated series as well as two new promotional cast photos featuring Calista Flockhart as Cat Grant and Benoist as her secret identity of Kara Danvers & Mehcad Brooks as James Olsen:

    'SUPERGIRL' is an action-adventure drama based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), Superman’s (Kal-El) cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth, decides to finally embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be. Twelve-year-old Kara escaped the doomed planet Krypton with her parents’ help at the same time as the infant Kal-El. Protected and raised on Earth by her foster family, the Danvers, Kara grew up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex (Chyler Leigh), and learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin in order to keep her identity a secret. Years later at 24, Kara lives in National City assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (Golden Globe Award winner Calista Flockhart), who just hired the Daily Planet’s former photographer, James Olsen (Mehcad Brooks), as her new art director. However, Kara’s days of keeping her talents a secret are over when Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), head of a super-secret agency where her sister also works, enlists her to help them protect the citizens of National City from sinister threats. Though Kara will need to find a way to manage her newfound empowerment with her very human relationships, her heart soars as she takes to the skies as Supergirl to fight crime. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Arrow”), Ali Adler, Sarah Schecter and Andrew Kreisberg are executive producers for Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The pilot was directed by Glen Winter (“Arrow”).

    "Lois Lane: Fallout" Review

    Posted on May 12, 2015 by Jennifer Cole

    "Lois Lane is starting a new life in Metropolis. An Army brat, Lois has lived all over--and seen all kinds of things. (Some of them defy explanation, like the near-disaster she witnessed in Kansas in the middle of one night.) But now her family is putting down roots in the big city, and Lois is determined to fit in. Stay quiet. Fly straight. As soon as she steps into her new high school, though, she can see it won't be that easy. A group known as the Warheads is making life miserable for another girl at school. They're messing with her mind, somehow, via the high-tech immersive videogame they all play. Not cool. Armed with her wit and her new snazzy job as a reporter, Lois has her sights set on solving this mystery. But sometimes it's all a bit much. Thank goodness for her maybe-more-than-a friend, a guy she knows only by his screenname, SmallvilleGuy..."

    When I first got this assignment, I wasn't sure what to think. This is a "Young Adult" novel about a teenaged Lois Lane and I am hardly "Young Adult". I took a deep breath and opened the book. I'm so glad that I did! I was hooked from the beginning.

    Lois isn't the typical teenager, she's Lois Lane in a teen environment with all of the qualities that we love about the character. She has a new school in a new town with hopefully a new start. She quickly discovers something worth investigating and when given the opportunity, reports on it as part of her new job with the Daily Scoop. With help from her online friend, "Smallvilleguy", she digs deeper and finds out the truth. A truth that needs to be exposed.

    This book is a real page turner. As a matter of fact, I considered taking this book to work with me to read at lunch. (I have a full-time job outside of my Supersite assignments.) I decided not to, because I realized that my whole day would turn into "lunch". I didn't want to put the book down!

    Author Gwenda Bond does a wonderful job of showcasing Lois and allowing her to shine in her own right as opposed to presenting her as a secondary character to Superman. Readers get to know Lois as a teenager and are there when she takes her first steps into a career in journalism which builds upon an attitude of sticking up for what she thinks is right.

    The book's high school setting along with many references to modern day teen culture might turn away some older readers but the presentation of a very solid and serious story are more than enough to pull in anyone with a mind to give it a chance.

    While the book does touch on the basic plot points of Lois' comic book origins, it also really stands on its own and is a perfect read for anyone who loves a good mystery, with some romance, and a tenacious lead character.

    All-in-all, "Lois Lane: Fallout" is a wonderful addition to any comic book fan or young adult reader's library and I for one am looking forward to future installments in this wonderfulseries. Gwenda Bond, you have a new fan!

    In a recent interview with Digital Spy, actor David Harewood talked about his upcoming role as Hank Henshaw in the CBS TV series, 'Supergirl' and his excitement over the show itself. Here's an excerpt:

    "Hank Henshaw, yes, who ends up becoming Cyborg Superman in the comics, battling Superman. So I'm looking forward to that."

    "He's a bit of a supervillain. He seems pretty indestructible. Which I kind of like because I keep getting blown up in these things. I'm kind of looking forward to being indestructible."

    In 'Supergirl', the Henshaw character will be potrayed as a former CIA agent who is now in charge of the Department of Extra-Normal Operations whose purpose is tracking extraterrestrial threats on Earth.
