Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird; it's a plane; no it's Superman!
Superman was first introduced to the world in comic format in June of 1938. He's one of the coolest superheros around. He's been in comics, TV shows and movies. I love superheroes and I found some interesting facts about Superman.
1. Superman and Clark Kent have different birthdays.
- June 10th is Superman's birthday. It's the day he landed on Earth.
- June 18th is Clark Kent's birthday. It's the day he was adopted by the Kent family.
- Clark Kent grew more powerful as he got older as it was able to store more solar energy and convert it more effectively.
- A Kryptonian glyph that served as a family shield for the House of EL, which means "hope."
- When he first appeared in 1938, he was incredibly strong, could withstand anything less than a bursting shell from a tank and was able to leap an 1/8th of a mile. It wasn't until 1941 when he gained the ability to fly.
- Radiation of a red sun immediately robs him of his power.
