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.

    Studio Oxmox and Muckle Mannequins have revealed a new promotional, 1:1 scale statue of actor Henry Cavill in his role as the Man of Steel from "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

    The officially licensed fiberglass & resin statue stands at over 7' tall and features Superman hovering in mid-air next to a steel beam from a destroyed building. Also showcased is the official Batman/Superman hybrid shield logo from the film:

    No release date or purchase price has been announced at this time but, based on past statues of this caliber, it is expected to retail for around $3,000 (USD).

    Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis's most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it's ever known before.

    "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" opens nationwide and in select IMAX locations on March 25, 2016.

    DC Collectibles, the exclusive line of toy and collector items from DC Entertainment (DCE), will showcase its exciting 2016 product line-up at New York Toy Fair including a first-ever 6’’ premium action figure line based on Warner Bros. recent and upcoming DC films including Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. In addition to the film-inspired line, in 2016 DC Collectibles will introduce a wide array of new statues, action figures and collectible items based on DCE’s comic and media properties and feature iconic characters Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, and more.

    The new, ongoing DC films action figure line was created specifically with toy collectors in mind, delving deep into character line-ups and offering up to 40+ points of articulation – the most articulation points ever produced by DC Collectibles.


    “This is the first time DC Collectibles has made action figures based on DC films, and with this much articulation and attention to detail, we’re not holding anything back,” said Geoff Johns, chief creative officer of DC Entertainment. “Its exciting to see our DC film slate bring to life so many great DC characters, and DC Collectibles is following suit with our action figure line. This line will include everything from Batman to Superman to Wonder Woman, and even the obscure characters that will pop up in the cinematic universe. I can’t wait for fans of our films to get their hands on these figures.”

    The first wave of DC films action figures will hit stores in Fall 2016 and will include Zod and Faora from Man of Steel and Armored Batman and Superman from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The first Suicide Squad action figures are set to release in 2017.

    DC Collectibles will also debut an all-new Designer Series action figure line dedicated to fan-favorite DC Comics character, Harley Quinn. Taken straight from the pages of DC Comics, the 6.75’’ action figures are inspired by the art style of critically acclaimed artist Amanda Conner, and will feature Connor’s most popular character designs of the Crown Princess of Crime and each will include custom accessories.

    "I’m really excited to be a part of this new line from DC Collectibles,” said Harley Quinn artist and co-writer Amanda Conner. “It’s been a fun, wild ride over the past few years, and I’m so happy that Harley’s popularity continues to explode. Seeing my designs, and the many different personalities of Harley Quinn, brought to life as action figures is simultaneously thrilling and humbling (if that’s even possible). This toy line adds a whole new level of whacky, wonderful insanity to the Harley world, and the fans are going to love it!”

    DC Collectibles will also expand the bestselling Batman: The Animated Series action figure line based on the award-winning Warner Bros. Animation TV series, producing new action figures as well as a first-ever 36’’ Batwing. The Batman: The Animated Series Batwing marks the second vehicle from the line following last year’s hit Batmobile replica, and will feature light, slide-able door access and room for two 6’’ action figures.

    “Our popular Batman: The Animated Series line continues to strike a nostalgic chord with fans and it’s really exciting to see the positive reception,” said Kevin Kiniry, vice president, Creative Services, at DC Entertainment. “We were the first to bring fans the Batman: The Animated Series Batmobile scaled for 6’’ action figures, and we’re very proud to also be the first to bring fans the Batwing at this scale as well.”

    Other new products scheduled for 2016 include additions to the highly popular DC Comics Icons action figure line, as well as first-ever corresponding accessory packs for the Icons figures. DC Collectibles will also debut a BlueLine Jim Lee Superman action figure - a follow-up to last year’s hit BlueLine Batman action figure- and will include a sketch from world-renowned artist Jim Lee. Additions to the Greg Capullo and Darwyn Cooke Designer Series action figure lines are also on tap for 2016, as are new statues from the bestselling DC Comics Bombshells series. The toy maker will also debut new Batman: Black & White statues and new additions to the hit DC Super-Pets Plush toy line. A wide array of Wonder Woman product will be released in 2016, including a Wonder Woman action figure 3-pack featuring the Amazon Princess’ first appearance in DC Comics’ ALL-STAR COMICS #8, as well as other iconic looks.

    In the latest chapter of the never-ending battle over the rights to the character of Superman, the Los Angeles Ninth Circuit Court has rejected yet another appeal request by Laura Siegel Larson, daughter of co-creator Jerome Siegel, and the heirs of the Siegel Estate.

    Ruling once again in favor of Warner Bros. and DC Comics, the court reaffirmed a lower court's prior decision that the Siegel heirs agreed to hand over their Superman rights to the studio in a letter from 2001.

    In the three-judge panel's 8-page per curiam, unpublished opinion, the Circuit held that "Larson has failed to show that she was in any way prejudiced by the 2001 agreement, through which the Siegels reassigned the purportedly recaptured rights to DC in exchange for substantial compensation."

    The panel also rejected Larson's argument on remand that her mother, Joanne Siegel, had rescinded the 2001 agreement in letters sent in 2002, and that DC acquiesced in the rescission.

    "As the district court noted, permitting Larson to raise these arguments now would substantially prejudice DC," the opinion said.

    Since Joanne Siegel has since died, the Circuit held "DC would have to change its defense strategy, conduct new discovery, and the litigation would effectively have to begin all over."

    The product of years of diligent research, design and copy writing, this fan project has finally come to fruition and fulfilled its original brief – to plug a big hole in Superman collectable history.

    Never officially produced for reasons still unknown, this Topps style "Superman IV: The Quest For Peace" Movie Picture Card series has been created from scratch using rare images compiled from the SUPERMANIA, CapedWonder.com and A Tribute To Christopher Reeve's joint collections to fill the void and illustrate the story of the longest, uncut version of the film as originally intended over 99 cards.

    Considerable effort was made to give this set as authentically vintage appearance as possible to compliment the prior collections in the series perfectly and be indistinguishable in presentation and quality from any official release from the era from the traditional title card to the accompanying story breakdown on the reverse (incorporating all deleted scenes).

    This full base set (Note: Stickers will be a future project) concludes with a special hand-numbered preview card of the unmade feature film, "Superman V" for this strictly-limited run of 50 sets (to tie in with Superman's 50th anniversary at the time).

    SUPERMANIA highlights that this is simply a wish fulfilment fan-art project and does not intend to infringe copyright in any way. However, should you wish to learn more about the collection, feel free to leave comments below and an email address should you require more information…

    Sets are £20.00 each plus the following shipping rates which will include tracking:

    £8.00 UK
    £12.00 Europe
    £15.00 USA

    Ordering and payment may be made via PayPal to theonlytexaspete@me.com; "gift" the payment and add your address in the "notes". Alexei Lambley-Steel will send you a tracking number when your order has been posted.

    Last night's episode of "Supergirl" entitled "For the Girl Who Has Everything" shocked fans with the unexpected death of one of the key characters to be introduced on the hit series freshman season.

    Inspired by the 1985 comic book storyline "For the Man Who Has Everything", the episode involved Non exposing Kara/Supergirl to the parasitic plant known as the Black Mercy which causes it's host to become comatose while it creates a vision of the individual's perfect life by tapping into the pleasure centers of their brain.

    This resulted in Kara envisioning her life back on Krypton with her family including her Aunt Astra (Laura Benanti) and her cousin Kal-El (Daniel DiMaggio). However, thanks to the assistance of Alex (Chyler Leigh), Kara is freed from the parasitic plant and sets out to make Non pay for causing the loss of her family all over again.

    SPOILER WARNING

    During the course of an ensuing duel involving Astra and Hank Henshaw/Martian Manhunter, Alex comes to his aid and uses a Kryptonite sword to stab Astra through the heart resulting in her death. Unaware that her sister is to blame, Hank tells Kara that he is the one that killed Astra.

    "The death of Astra weighs heavy on Kara in the upcoming episodes," states executive producer Andrew Kreisberg in an itnerview with EW. "Kara believes in the inherent goodness of people. She thinks that deep down her aunt was more misguided than evil, and if she had more time, she could have brought her back into the light."

    "We've seen Astra had some measure of compassion for Kara," Kreisberg says. "As we say on the show, 'Blood bonds us all.' But Non is not blood to Kara. And the loss of his wife, who he truly loves, will make him a very dangerous foe."

    Kreisberg goes on to state that the decision to end Astra's storyline was due to Benanti's previous Broadway commitments but that the actress will return in future appearances as Kara's mother, Alura.

    Actress Sarah Douglas will appear as a featured guest at the upcoming "Gallifrey One: Station 27 Sci-Fi" Convention which takes place Friday, February 12th - Sunday, February 14th at the Marriott Los Angeles Airport Hotel in Los Angeles, CA.

    Douglas is best remembered for her breakout role as Ursa in both Superman: The Movie (1978) and Superman: II (1980). And with good reason. For generations of audiences, this career-defining role helped bring in a slew of roles that took Sarah from her home-town of Stratford Upon Avon in England to the bright lights of Hollywood where she either starred in, or featured prominently, in a wide variety of high profile films and television shows, ranging from Conan The Destroyer (1984) alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, Return of Swamp Thing (1989) with screen legend Louis Jordan, hit show Falcon Crest for 2 seasons, the sci-fi classic mini-series V: The Final Battle (1984) and fan favourites Stargate SG1, Babylon 5, Remington Steele, and Magnum P.I.

    Throughout the first decade of this century, Douglas has repeatedly appeared on the UK stage and tv, earning critical praise for her performances on the Open Air Shakespeare Tour and, more recently, in 2012 in The Hallowe’en Sessions. In addition, she is often to be found making guest appearances world-wide at conventions, something the actress feels is "a must" so she can remain connected to her fans.

    Other guests scheduled to be in attendance alongside Douglas include Sir John Hurt ("Alien," "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"), Peter Davison ("Dr. Who," "Law & Order: UK"), and Patricia Quinn ("The Rocky Horror Picture Show").
