January 1938

Five years after his creation, Jérôme Siegel and Joe Shuster sold their character to DC Comics. It only took one page for his extra-terrestrial background to be described; sent by his father in a rocket, the newborn is the sole survivor of a dead planet. Invincible, fast and capable of jumping like a grasshopper, we're told the giant's powers come from his people who are much more advanced than the earthlings. Dressed in a suit, he protects those in need. A journalist at the Daily Planet under the alias of Clark Kent, he works alongside Lois Lane with whom he is madly in love. In the first issue, he is already wearing his iconic red cape, but it's noted that his boots, along with his tights are blue and that we can see quite clearly on his chest a gold badge very similar to a police badge.

1960

The version of Krypton situated beyond Saturn's orbit around the red sun definately required Rao. Due to very strong gravity on Kryton, it's not on Earth where Kryptonite's develop their powers. From this also comes the fact that Superman lost all his powers when he was exposed to the light of the red star.

Warner Bros created Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman with Dean Kain in the role of Clark Kent. The love life of the superhero, the identity crisis prevails which takes precedence of it's judgement. However, the writers of the comic decided during one of their super-sized summits, for Superman to be married. Forced to postpone the marriage in the comic to tie in with the TV series, they made the difficult decision to kill the hero and to then do a comeback from the dead.
