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 Historic Fox Theatre in Centralia, WA will present two special screenings of the 1978 Action/Adventure film "Superman: The Movie" on Saturday, June 27th as part of their 2015 Movie Series.

Just before the destruction of the planet Krypton, scientist Jor-El (Marlon Brando) sends his infant son Kal-El on a spaceship to Earth. Raised by kindly farmers Jonathan (Glenn Ford) and Martha Kent (Phyllis Thaxter), young Clark (Christopher Reeve) discovers the source of his superhuman powers and moves to Metropolis to fight evil. As Superman, he battles the villainous Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman), while, as novice reporter Clark Kent, he attempts to woo co-worker Lois Lane (Margot Kidder).

The screenings will take place at 2:00PM and 7:00PM. Admission for each screening is $8 per person, $7 for Members, and $20 per family (three to four persons). Presale tickets are available at Brown Paper Tickets, at Book 'n' Brush in Chehalis, Holley's Place, HUBBUB, Santa Lucia Coffee and PostNet in Centralia.

For more information, contact the Fox Theatre at (360) 623-1103. All proceeds from the event benefit the restoration of the Historic Fox Theatre.

A new documentary is currently in the works which will take an in depth look at director George Miller's abandoned 2009 film "Justice League: Mortal".

According to the Hollywood Reporter, filmmakers Ryan Unicomb, Aaron Cater and Steven Caldwell will take on the project which is tentatively titled "Miller's Justice League Mortal".

"We wanted to get the story out there to help us to gauge interest," says Unicomb, who has directed a number of short films including Gifted, co-directed with Jordan Bailey, which followed the rise and fall of the world’s first superhero, Guardian.

"I have always been fascinated with the project, which would be in the same vein as 2013’s Jodorowsky's Dune and this year's The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, about a Superman movie that Tim Burton was to direct in the 1990s."

Miller ("Mad Max", "Happy Feet") was in the process of developing "Justice League: Mortal" in 2007 with a script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney. The film was set to star D.J. Cotrona as Superman/Clark Kent, Armie Hammer as Batman, Adam Brody as Barry Allen/The Flash, rapper Common as John Stewart/Green Lantern, and Australian model Megan Gale as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman.

Warner Bros. ultimately shut down the project in 2008 citing a lack of tax breaks and the writer's strike as the main reasons it pulled the plug.

DC Comics has generously provided the Superman Super Site with review copies of Superman related titles currently featuring the publisher's groundbreaking 'Convergence' storyline.

In this review, we look at 'Convergence - Adventures of Superman #2' which features a story written by Marv Wolfman and artwork by Roberto Viacava, Andy Owens, and Sotocolor.

The issue kicks off where the series left off in 'Convergence - Adventures of Superman #1' with the Earth-1 versions of Superman and Supergirl trapped in the Phantom Zone fighting for their lives against a hoard of imprisoned Kryptonian villains.

Kara is ultimately pulled out of the Phantom Zone by Lucius and can do nothing but watch as the Kryptonian villains begin to get the upper hand over Superman with a barrage of punches and kicks.

Meanwhile, the Earth A.D. Apes from the Great Disaster that appeared in the prior issue are gathering under General Symian to eradicate the humans. However, he receives competition from none other than the Last Boy on Earth, Kamandi.

Back in the lab, Supergirl refuses to give up on Superman and, using her x-ray vision, spots and utilizes a grapling hook from the Batmobile to snag the Man of Steel and pull him to freedom.

Reunited, the two join Kamandi in his fight against General Symian and the ape army. Due to Kara's prior vision in the Phantom Zone of the future and her untimely death, she throws herself headlong into the fight; willing to do anything to protect Superman.

The issues concludes with Kara and Superman looking over an earthquake ravaged landscape after defeating the apes and taking out their "ultimate weapon", a nuclear warhead rocket.

Marv Wolfman continues to put together a great storyline for 'Convergence - Adventures of Superman #2' and developing the pre-Crisis versions of both Superman and Supergirl. The chemistry between these iconic characters and the introduction of Kamandi only adds to the reader's enjoyment.

The artwork provided by Roberto Viacava, Andy Owens, and Sotocolor is once again truly epic and continues the old-fashioned style of the pre-Crisis time period. However, as opposed to the previous issue which set the proper mood for each scene while also throwing in a few excellent splash pages, this issue is a bit lacking and contains backgrounds that are a bit too sparse.

All-in-all, 'Convergence - Adventures of Superman #2' is yet another a great addition to DC's groundbreaking storyline.

    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.

    Wrapping up its most watched season in seven years, The CW Network presented its 2015-16 broadcast schedule today to advertisers, affiliates and national media at New York City Center in New York City.

    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? DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”).

    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.
