Summary
Nerdy teenagers Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster labored to create a hero who could be everything they were not: Superman, now the lantern-jawed darling of comics, TV, movies, radio, and the stage. But in 1938 -- after years of false starts and rejections -- they sold him Action Comics for a mere $130, so Superman's rightful creators lost all rights (and subsequent profits) from him. This wide-ranging history neatly captures the appeal of the Man of Steel, as it describes the artists, writers, and others who influenced Superman's traits to make him a pop culture avatar of society's changing norms over the decades. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
