Boys want to grow up to be him and girls adore him. He's the ultimate superhero, the ultimate man and the ultimate American icon. He's as representative of America as baseball and apple pie and he has entered the lives of millions for more than six decades through comic books, the small screen and feature films. Yet, there is much about Superman that has never been examined.
In THE MAN FROM KRYPTON, leading writers discuss, debate and celebrate the legend of Superman. Is Superman too violent? Is Lex Luthor the world's greatest villain? What has The WB done for the Superman property? And is Superman even human? All these questions and more are answered in this in-depth look at all things related to the Man of Steel.
Funny, philosophical, insightful and personal, THE MAN FROM KRYPTON explores every aspect of the Superman legend and is perfect for fans, young and old, of America's greatest superhero.
