Seventy-five years ago today, Superman debuted in the pages of Action Comics #1 (cover dated June 1938), introducing the Man of Steel, Clark Kent and Lois Lane to the world, courtesy of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
This also marks the one-year anniversary of this blog! In the last twelve months, I’ve managed to catalog Superman’s story as it’s played out in two ongoing comics, a radio serial, both the daily and Sunday newspaper and a handful of assorted appearances, and that still only takes us up through late 1940!
Many thanks to the almost-12,000 (!!) followers of The Chronological Superman. I’m super-pleased that you’re all along for the ride.
Question: When did Goku battling Superman become a thing? And not just a thing but something in which endless Internet wars are being fought. They are both good guys and neither of them are stupid enough to not realize that. And even if they were forced to battle I’m pretty sure they could figure out a way to work it out and defeat the person forcing them to battle.
Do your little stories if you want but at least get it right that these two would be on the same side and therefore have mutual respect for each other.
