Description

This is one essay from the anthology The Man from Krypton

Leading writers discuss, debate and celebrate the legend of Superman in this anthology, contending that his legend is a truly American myth. Superman was an immigrant with little more than the clothes on his back and raised by simple farmers, absorbing their humble values. He always chose to do the right thing, fighting for truth, justice, and the American way and represents America at its best. The in-depth analyses of the comics, films and cartoons are at turns funny, philosophical, insightful and personal, exploring every aspect of the Superman legend.
