Don’t miss: Superman’s heroic exploits on screen

Superman and the Mole Men

Beyond doubt, Superman is one of the most loved superheroes of all time. After first featuring in Action Comics in 1938, Superman has appeared in several TV series, radio shows, video games, and films.

While the fans of other superheroes like Spiderman, Batman and Iron Man have always been offered impressive films time after time, Superman fans would witness the return of their favourite superhero on the big screen after a sabbatical. The earliest Superman film, ‘Superman and the Mole Men’, released in 1951 and starred George Reeves as Superman and Phyllis Coates as his love interest Lois Lane. The film garnered decent reviews from the critics; the character of Superman became a national cultural icon in the United States and an instant hit with the masses.

Needless to say though, with the advancement in technology, the CGI and FX of the subsequent Superman films improved drastically; but what remained unchanged was the origin of the superhero. Born Kal-El on the planet Krypton, Superman was transported to Earth as an infant by his father Jor-El, moments before Krypton's demolition. On reaching Earth, he is then adopted by a Kansas farmer and his wife and raised as Clark Kent.

The fact that he was born and brought up in a morally strong middleclass family makes Superman perhaps the most relatable superhero. With Man of Steel, the Superman film series gets a reboot; and going by the trailers and videos released so far, if Man Of Steel does not do any good to the Superman film series, nothing else will.
