It’s hard to believe Superman has been fighting for truth, justice, and the American way for 75 years.


To mark this milestone, DC has unveiled a commemorative Superman 75th Anniversary logo. An animated short film chronicling the character’s 75 years is currently in the works. 

“Society always needs heroes. It always needs a black and white sense of justice. With his kind of power, Superman could’ve either been the master of mankind or the servant of mankind. You’ve got to give credit to the hero with that kind of power who wants to serve,” said former “Superman” and “Action Comics” writer/artist George Pérez. “He is not a super-hero, but the super-hero.”

Former “Action Comics” writer David Michelinie added: “He’s the ultimate good guy. In his purest incarnations, ignoring his occasional side-trips to the dark side dictated by societal and pop culture fads, he’s the guy who will always do the right thing, who will risk everything to save another human being and prevent pain, misery, or tragedy.”
