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 is pleased to announce the first round of Celebrity Guests for the 37th annual festival to be held June 11-14 in Metropolis, IL.

Special Guest, Caity Lotz appears on the award-winning CW TV series "Arrow" as the character "Sara Lance a.k.a The Canary". Lotz started her career as a dancer, touring with Avril Lavigne and Lady Gaga and starring in music videos, including Lady Gaga's. In 2005, Lotz joined the girl group, "Soccx". In 2006, the group released their debut single, "From Dusk Till Dawn (Get The Party Started)", which was followed up in 2007 by the single, "Scream Out Loud", both of which reached the top 10 in Germany. Their debut album, "Hold On", was also released in 2007 and their third single, "Can't Take My Eyes Off You", was released in 2008. Lotz began her acting career in 2006 with a small role in the cheerleading film, Bring It On: All or Nothing. She followed that up in 2010 with a part in Law & Order: LA: Harbor City and a recurring role in the fourth season of the AMC drama, Mad Men (2007), as "Stephanie", Anna Draper's niece. In 2011, Lotz starred as "Officer Kirsten Landry", one of the main characters in the MTV horror/black comedy/mockumentary series, Death Valley. Lotz performs all her own stunts on the show.

Caity will be appearing on Saturday, June 13th at the Celebrity Autograph Sessions at the Baymont Theatre. An autograph session ticket will be required to meet this guest.

Making her first trip to Metropolis will be Stacy Haiduk, who starred in the role of "Lana Lang" on the series Superboy, which ran from 1988-1992. During her stint on Superboy, she continued to act outside of the show, performing in movies and a guest role on Parker Lewis Can’t Lose. After the cancellation of Superboy, she portrayed FBI agent-in-training "Rhea McPherson" in the short-lived drama, Round Table. In 1993, she landed the role of "Lt. Katie Hitchcock" on Seaquest DSV.

Further acting roles followed, including movies such as Danielle Steel’s A Perfect Stranger and guest appearances on shows such as Due South. She also portrayed the seductive "Lilly Langtry" on the cult-favorite show, Kindred: The Embrace. Many more movies, as well as guest appearances on shows such as Melrose Place, E.R., The X-Files, The Profiler, NCIS and CSI: Miami have followed, demonstrating her depth and range as an actress.

Also appearing this year is Diane Sherry Case who is best known for her role of "Lana Lang" in Superman: The Movie. She also appeared in Hawaii (1966) and Pretty Maids All in a Row (1971). She played Bing Crosby's daughter in the TV series The Bing Crosby Show and appeared in numerous other series as well as two Super Bowl commercials. More recently, Diane has published numerous short stories and authored two novels, "Elephant Milk" and "Earth To Skye". With a grant from the American Film Institute, she wrote and directed two short films, Spa-tel and Valentine's Day.

Haiduk and Case will be available to meet the fans on Friday, June 12th and Saturday, June 13th at the Autograph Zone. No tickets are required to meet either guest.

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 'Superman - Convergence #1' which features a story written by Dan Jurgens and artwork by Lee Weeks and Brad Anderson.

The issue kicks off with the classic Man of Steel trapped in a pre-flashpoint Gotham and without the use of his powers thanks to one of Braniac's domes which has imprisoned infinite cities and suspended them in time.

Without the possibility of returning to Metropolis - which techinically doesn't really exist anymore - Clark has taken on the persona of Batman while Lois - pregnant with the couple's child - plays the part of Oracle.

When the dome is suddenly lifted, Superman regains his powers and sets off to investigate only to encounter Captain Thunder (Shazam!), Abin Sur (Green Lantern), and Cyborg from the Gotham City of the 'Flashpoint' storyline.

While Thomas Wayne/Batman begins to piece together the convergence of different universes, Lois must cottend with the affections of the 'Flashpoint' Kal-El who mistakes her for the Lois from his universe.

Dan Jurgens was a perfect choice for 'Superman - Convergence #1' and does a wonderful job of bringing back a Superman who is much wiser and more confident than his New-52 counterpart thanks in huge part to experience. Jurgens does a great job of showing that this Man of Steel is much more of a diplomat and powerhouse which shines through in his overall demeanor and dialogue.

The pace of the issue allows readers to get a good understanding of the primary characters and storyline prior to diving headlong into the mayhem that explodes once the 'Flashpoint' universe comes into play. For those who are not familiar with the 'Flashpoint' characters, Jurgens is very apt in detailing the differences between their universe and that of Superman and Lois.

Lee Weeks along with colorist Brad Anderson provide wonderful artwork which helps brings Jurgens' story to life. From more subtle moments featuring Superman and Lois to the massive conflicts with 'Flashpoint' characters, Weeks and Anderson are great at setting a strong visual tone which also includes excellent splash pages.

All-in-all, 'Convergence: Superman #1' is truly a great comic featuring solid character work alongside wonderful visuals. The classic version of Superman in absolutely back with a bang and fans can only hope that he sticks around for awhile even after the events of the 'Convergence' storyline have come and gone.

Beginning in Fall 2015, DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation, Warner Bros. Consumer Products and Mattel join forces to launch DC Super Hero Girls, an exciting new universe of Super Heroic storytelling that helps build character and confidence, and empowers girls to discover their true potential. Featuring DC Comics' most powerful and diverse line-up of female characters as relatable teens, DC Super Hero Girls will play out across multiple entertainment content platforms and product categories to create an immersive world.

Developed for girls aged 6-12, DC Super Hero Girls centers on the female Super Heroes and Super-Villains of the DC Comics universe during their formative years—prior to discovering their full super power potential. Featuring a completely new artistic style and aesthetic, DC Comics' icons such as Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Bumble Bee, Poison Ivy, Katana and many more make their unprecedented teenaged introduction. Each character has her own storyline that explores what teen life is like as a Super Hero, including discovering her unique abilities, nurturing her remarkable powers and mastering the fundamentals of being a hero.

"DC Entertainment is home to the most iconic and well-known Super Heroes including Wonder Woman, Supergirl and Batgirl," said Diane Nelson, President of DC Entertainment. "DC Super Hero Girls represents the embodiment of our long-term strategy to harness the power of our diverse female characters. I am so pleased that we are able to offer relatable and strong role models in a unique way, just for girls."

The initial launch of DC Super Hero Girls in Fall 2015 will include an immersive digital experience, original digital content and digital publishing—providing opportunities for girls to interact with characters, learn about the storylines, and engage in customizable play. TV specials, made-for-videos, toys, apparel, books and other product categories will begin to rollout in 2016.

"Developing a Super Hero franchise exclusively for girls that includes all of the key components of a comprehensive entertainment experience—from content to consumer products—is something we are excited to be doing in conjunction with our great partners," said Brad Globe, President of Warner Bros. Consumer Products. "It's really an honor to be part of this cultural moment and to be delivering a concept so rooted in a relatable and empowered theme that the characters of DC Comics are uniquely able to present."

As master toy licensee, Mattel is collaborating with DC Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and Warner Bros. Consumer Products on DC Super Hero Girls' narrative creation, interactive digital activations and ultimately a toy line launching in 2016. Mattel category-leading firsts include a line of characters for the action figure category, an area of the industry that has been primarily developed with boys in mind, and fashion dolls featuring strong, athletic bodies that stand on their own in heroic poses.

"Partnering with the best and being the best partner is of paramount importance," said Richard Dickson, President, Chief Operating Officer, Mattel. "Together with Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment, the DC Super Hero Girls franchise will further expand our already powerful girls portfolio. We know Super Hero is a culturally relevant theme and the DC Super Hero Girls franchise will engage and inspire girls, providing cues to explore heroic acts through play and into real life."

The Random House Books for Young Readers imprint of Random House Children's Books has been appointed the master publishing partner for the franchise and will be creating a portfolio of books that will bring the DC Super Hero Girls world to life, beginning in Spring 2016. Random House's publishing program will be complemented by a series of original graphic novels from DC Entertainment. The LEGO Group will also be key to building the DC Super Hero Girls franchise, leveraging their experience and success engaging girls in creative construction play to bolster this universe through an array of LEGO® building sets designed to inspire girls' imaginations. Additionally, consumer products partners around the world will be engaged in creating a merchandise line dedicated to DC Super Hero Girls across all key categories.

Actor/writer and good friend of the Superman Super Site, Jeffrey Breslauer attended the recent World Record Attempt held by DC Comics in Los Angeles, CA and has filed the following report on the event:

When I was asked by my friend, Neil Cole, to cover the DC Super Hero World Record Event in L. A., I expected it to be fun; sort of like a condensed and intense version of the Metropolis Superman Celebration. I got what I expected, and a little bit more! With costumed characters milling around in a waiting area, it reminded me of a comics version of a hit TV show: Earth's Got Talent!!

It seemed that there were a couple of crossover characters making appearances, as well! One, in particular, was Hancock! However; due to his not being a DC character and especially his destructive track record, he was carefully asked to leave!

Characters walked a virtual red carpet, and some were even interviewed for the media covering the event. There were "official" members of the Justice league, shown below, as part of the world-wide touring event, which gave the fans opportunities to pose with their favorites, and then getting the finished photo as a souvenir of the festivities.

Throughout the event, fans were able to enjoy screenings of the latest scenes from Brave and Bold, Teen Titans, the Justice League Lego movie, and, as a finale, the new teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

For inclusion into the Guinness World Record, participants needed to be dressed, head to toe, in an approved DC super hero costume from any period of comics, television or cinema history; and gather within the roped off holding area for a period of five minutes, counted down by officials.

Sadly, the event lasted a mere two hours, and once the record book officials were satisfied, "super heroes" began to scatter. As with the MSC, I wanted it to go on! Now, my appetite is whetted, and I wait, anxiously, for June!!

The teaser trailer for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" premiered yesterday evening at IMAX Theaters across the U.S. and Warner Bros. certainly did not disappoint the thousands of fans who waited hours to see the event.

The IMAX version of the trailer is pretty much a carbon-copy of the one recently released online by the studio but with the addition of a few extra seconds of amazing footage all shot with IMAX cameras.

The bonus footage features both a red-eyed Man of Steel and armored Dark Knight crouch down before racing towards one another with teeth clinched and fists raised prior to colliding into one another. The footage is amazing and, according to a personal video from Zack Snyder to the fans in attendance, is exclusive to the IMAX event.

Following the trailer screening, fans were treated to free copies of the promotional posters featuring Superman and Batman which Snyder recently revealed online via Twitter. Also, vouchers were given out that could be redeemed for free advance screening tickets to see "Batman v Superman" a week prior to the films official release next year.

As a final "thank you", Snyder sent out a tweet to everyone who attended and debuted the following new promotional photo of the Ben Affleck's Batman costume as featured in the film:

The IMAX event certainly shows that Warner Bros. is pulling out all the stops in promoting "Batman v Superman". Going forward, one can only imagine what the studio has in store for fans leading up to the March 25th, 2016 premiere.

I LOVE LUCY SUPERSTAR SPECIAL, a new one-hour special featuring two colorized back-to-back classic episodes of the 1950s series, will be broadcast Sunday, May 17 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

The two episodes – like those presented in previous years during Christmas – are newly colorized with a vintage look, a nod to the 1950s period in which they were filmed. The main titles and end credits are seamlessly combined into one set – at the beginning and end of the hour – with no interruption between the episodes.

Included in the special is material from “L.A. at Last!” that has not been broadcast since the episode first aired on CBS 60 years ago.

The episodes star Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz as Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, and Vivian Vance and William Frawley as the Ricardos’ friends and landlords, Ethel and Fred Mertz. William Holden guest stars in “L.A. at Last!” and George Reeves, star of the “Adventures of Superman” series, reprises his role in “Lucy and Superman.”

In “Lucy and Superman,” Lucy and longtime friend and rival Caroline Appleby want to schedule their child’s birthday party on the same afternoon. Lucy finally “wins” the battle by promising that TV superhero Superman will appear at Little Ricky’s party. However, things take a hilarious turn when the “Man of Steel” has a scheduling problem and Lucy decides to replace him.

“Lucy and Superman” originally aired Jan. 14, 1957, and was an immediate hit with fans of both “I Love Lucy” and “Superman.”

“L.A. at Last!” finds the Ricardos and Mertzes arriving in Hollywood, where Ricky is appearing in a new motion picture. Star-struck Lucy is anxious to meet some movie stars up-close, and decides to have lunch with the Mertzes at the famed Brown Derby Restaurant, where she meets film star William Holden and causes a major mess. Ricky innocently complicates matters when he meets Holden at the studio later, and invites him home for coffee.

“L.A. at Last!” originally aired Feb. 7, 1955, and became an instant classic. The script was nominated for an Emmy® Award.

“I Love Lucy” aired on CBS from Oct. 15, 1951 until June 24, 1957. It was voted “the best TV show of all time” in a 2012 viewer poll conducted by People Magazine and ABC News.
