Fact #1: Shell-Shocked
Although today we think of SUPERMAN as having no earthly weaknesses, this was not always the case. In 1938, SUPERMAN’S debut in Action Comics #1 identified him as being not-quite indestructible; “nothing less than a bursting shell” could penetrate his skin.
Fact #2: Power Up or Down
SUPERMAN is known worldwide for his out-of-this-world superpowers, which he gains from the power of the yellow sun. However, enemies over time have also figured out some potential vulnerabilities like exposure to Kryptonite, magic, or red sun radiation.
Fact #3: Lofty Love Lives
The romance between Lois Lane and SUPERMAN is a cornerstone of his story, but she hasn’t been his only love interest over the years. Interestingly, all of SUPERMAN’S love interests share Lane’s initials: Lana Lang, Lori Lemaris, and Lyla Lerrol.
Fact #4: A Father’s Gift
Kelex, the robot that serves SUPERMAN and maintains the Fortress of Solitude, once belonged to SUPERMAN'S father, Jor-El, on Krypton.
Fact #5: A SUPER MAN and a Super Father Too!
The new SUPERMAN: Son of Kal-El comic book series focuses on Clark Kent’s son, rather than himself, as SUPERMAN. Jonathan Kent, son of SUPERMAN and Lois Lane, takes on his father’s responsibilities to keep the legacy of hope alive for his home planet.
SUPERMAN is world-famous for always keeping his eye on justice and fairness. His work demands incredible focus and determination, and an unwavering belief in the righteousness of his cause. With The Shield, Man of Steel, or Justice League smart compression sleeves on your arm, you can emulate this same fortitude of mind and conviction in a safe, non-invasive way. As a bonus, they also look amazing paired with any workout gear or superhero costume!
