USA: Superman Hat Website Makes Kids Smile and Granddads Dream

DETROIT, Michigan / EIN News / August 29, 2010

Superman is a fictional character, a comic book superhero appearing in publications by DC Comics, widely considered to be an American cultural icon. Created by American writer Jerry Siegel and Canadian-born American artist Joe Shuster in 1932 while both were living in Cleveland, Ohio, and sold to Detective Comics, Inc. (later DC Comics) in 1938, the character first appeared in Action Comics (June 1938) and subsequently appeared in various radio serials, television programs, films, newspaper strips, and video games.

Mark Maupin 60 year old internet marketer said I use to run from the bus to watch superman when I came home from grade school. Look at the super hero today movies and now my grandchildren are running to see him in action. It has been fun to build a site for his products and history. I can not run as fast as I could as kid, but I can wear a Superman Hat.

With the success of his adventures, Superman helped to create the superhero genre and establish its primacy within the American comic book. The character's appearance is distinctive and iconic: a blue, red and yellow costume, complete with cape, with a stylized "S" shield on his chest. This shield is now typically used across media to symbolize the character.

The original story of Superman relates that he was born Kal-El on the planet Krypton, before being rocketed to Earth as an infant by his scientist father Jor-El, moments before Krypton's destruction. Discovered and adopted by a Kansas farmer and his wife, the child is raised as Clark Kent and imbued with a strong moral compass. Very early he started to display superhuman abilities, which upon reaching maturity he resolved to use for the benefit of humanity.
