Credited as the first superhero, this week we cover the Man of Steel, Superman. Created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster and came into the world as we know him today in 1938, we cover the long history of his creation, the real world influences on his stories, and ultimately what he stands for in comic books and to fans. We’re joined by Jared host of Podcast 2187 and Project T.A.H.I.T.I. to talk about truth, justice, and the American way. We even cover how Superman breaks the mold by pretty much having a happy home life – for comics anyway – in a world of comics filled with darkness and family issues.
