Glen Weldon (Author)
A celebration of Superman's life and history - in time for his 75th birthday. How has the Big Blue Boy Scout stayed so popular for so long? How has he changed with the times, and what essential aspects of him have remained constant? This fascinating biography examines Superman as a cultural phenomenon through 75 years of action-packed adventures, from his early years as a social activist in circus tights to his growth into the internationally renowned demigod he is today.

A: Why not have Hawkgirl in the game? She rules!! Giving a lesser known superhero a chance to be at the forefront is rare in video games, so we thought it would be a good change of pace. Plus, Batman and Superman have their own TV Games controllers already.
Q: What I also liked about the Justice League game and some of the others I've played is the save points within the quest game. I liked being able to save the game and come back to it later, instead of having to go through all of it in one sitting. A lot of games don't incorporate that. What made you include this feature?
A: We felt the exact same way as you do. The save feature is a minimum requirement in console games, and our platform has reached a point where this feature can now be integrated into the game design without compromising gameplay.
Q: So far we've seen Justice League, Spider-Man, and the Fantastic Four; what other superhero games are either in the works or in stores soon from Jakks?
A: We just released a Superman controller and it should be hitting store shelves in the next month. X-Men will be launching next month and we're very excited to be a part of this great franchise. Last, we will be releasing another Spider-Man controller in 2007 to launch in conjunction with the next film.
