Superman, Man of Steel: a superhero's life in pictures

1.The first sighting of the Man of Steel in June 1938 on the cover of Action Comics. The issue originally cost 10 cents but now sells for seven figures at auction
超人初次亮相是在1938年《动作漫画》(Action Comics)封面。当时它的价值只有10美分,而现在该漫画的第一版旧书在拍卖会上的卖价已经上了七位数。

2.In 1939 he appeared in his own comic. Here is the first issue

3.Superman quickly captured the public's imagination. Here a helium inflated model rises over the Times Square crowd to lead the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in 1940. His effigy has continued to pop up at parades to this day

4.The first cartoon incarnation of Superman was produced by the Fleischer & Famous Studios in 1941 and ran until 1942. The Fleischer cartoons were responsible for Superman being able to fly. When they started work on the series, Superman could only leap from place to place (hence "able to leap tall buildings in a single bound" in the opening). But they deemed it as "silly looking" after seeing it animated and decided, with Detective Comics's permission, to have him fly instead
超人的首个卡通化身于1941年由Fleischer & Famous 工作室创作,历时一年才完成。超人会飞的灵感来源于弗莱舍卡通。他们最初创作该系列时,超人还只能从一个地方“跳”到别处(因此,最初他纵身一跃便跨过了高楼大厦)。但看到动态超人后,他们觉得他的样子很傻气,于是在征得超人的出版商《侦探漫画》许可后,决定让超人用“飞”代替“跳”。

5.Kirk Alyn was the first actor to play Superman on screen in cinemas in the 1948 Columbia serial Superman which was comprised of 15 episodes. Here he arrives in the nick of time to save housewife (Jean West), from a fire in an apartment building

6.Spoiler Alert! This photo may shatter the illusions of some viewers as it shows the special-effects Kirk Alyn employed in the 1948 Columbia Superman serial

7.A poster advertises the 15 episode 1950 serial Atom Man vs Superman starring Kirk Alyn as the Man of Steel battling Lex Luthor, secretly the Atom Man who is blackmailing the city of Metropolis by threatening to destroy the entire community

8.Superman (Kirk Alyn) saves Lois Lane (Noel Neil), girl reporter on the Daily Planet, from certain death as he stops her car just before it is about to topple over a cliff in the 1950 serial

9.In 1951, George Reeves took over the role as Superman in the first feature length movie, Superman and the Mole Men

10.Shot in 12 days on a studio backlot, here George Reeves helps out the little guys in 1951's Superman And The Mole Men

11.The success of the movie lead to the television series Adventures of Superman which ran from 1952 to 1958. George Reeves as Superman, stands behind a group of armed men in a still from the series. The death of George Reeves in 1959 of a gunshot wound, aged 45, under disputed circumstances (officially ruled as a suicide) is said by some to have been the start of the 'Superman Curse' which is alleged to have claimed many victims

12.Fans had to wait until Christmas of 1978 for the next movie. Directed by Richard Donner, Superman was a huge critical and commercial success. Christopher Reeve took the starring role. Major stars Marlon Brando and Gene Hackman signed on to play Jor-El and Lex Luthor with Brando famously trousering $3.7 million up front, plus 11.75% of the gross profits from the film despite only being on set for two weeks

13.1980s Superman II was another success despite stiff competition from Raiders of the Lost Ark. However 1983's Superman III didn't fare so well with fans feeling that Christopher Reeve's co-star, comedian Richard Pryor, played the whole film for laughs. Reeve appeared in a fourth film in 1987 but it was a flop

14.Helen Slater hit the big screen as Supergirl in 1984 in a (not very well received) spinoff

15.Lois and Clark : The New Adventures of Superman was a television series that ran from 1993 to 1997. Superman's role was secondary to Clark Kent, played by Dean Cain, and the show centred around his relationship with Teri Hatcher's Lois Lane
《超人新冒险 》:这部电视剧于1993年至1997年播放。继克拉克•肯特之后,超人的角色由迪恩•凯恩出演,该片主要讲述超人和路易斯•莱恩(由泰瑞•海切尔饰演)的情感故事。

16.Another television adaptation, Smallville, premiered in 2001 and ran for 10 years. The series follows the adventures of Clark Kent (Tom Welling), who resides in the fictional town of Smallville, Kansas, during the years before he becomes Superman. Here he abuses his powers to check out Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk), the girl next door
另一部改编电视剧——《超人前传》于2011年上映,播了整整10年。该剧继续了克拉克•肯特(汤姆•威林饰演)的冒险活动,在成为超人之前,他居住在虚构的堪萨斯城斯莫镇。图为克拉克为了通过邻家女孩拉娜•蓝(克斯汀•克鲁克饰演 )的考验滥用自己的能量。

17.Bryan Singer directed the 2006 movie Superman Returns with Brandan Routh playing the superhero. The film received positive reviews and many award nominations. A sequel was planned for a summer 2009 release, but the project was later cancelled

18.Anybody who is anybody has worn one of these T-shirts. Homer sported a snug version in 2007's The Simpsons Movie

19.Coming to screens in the UK in June, director Zack Snyder reboots the franchise with Henry Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel
