Happy 75th Anniversary to Superman

June officially marked the 75th Anniversary of Superman, but do to delays and other things, Warner Bros — parent company of DC Comics — released this video only last month.

 As you can see it’s an animated retrospect of the look of Superman from the Siegel/Shuster origins of 1938 to the Jim Lee “New 52” look from the 2011 issue of “Justice League #1” and Henry Cavill in the film, “Man of Steel.”  It includes such iconic images as the Fleischman “Superman” cartoons of the 1940s, the George Reeves “Superman” of the live-action TV show from the 1950s, iconic art and story lines from the 60s and 70s, the campy “Super Friends” cartoon look, “Superman v. Ali,” and of course the late Christopher Reeves from the films of the late 1970s.

Then, the music shifts (from the iconic John Williams to the newer theme from Hans Zimmer for “Man of Steel”) and with it the grim and gritty Superman of today.  The battle with Doomsday, the “Death of Superman,” the “Reign of the Superman,” “Superman Red / Superman Blue,” the cartoon from the 1990s until they switch to “Kingdom Come” and into the modern day.

The old man looks good at 75.  Expect to see something similar for Batman (1939) and Wonder Woman (1942) in the coming years.
