Superman: The Man of Steel

    (DC, 1991–2003)
™ and ©1991 DC Comics, Inc.

He was born as Kal-El, on the planet Krypton where his father was that world’s greatest scientist. When his father, Jor-El, realized that their world was doomed, he placed his son in a lone spaceship and sent it to Earth. There, the boy was found by a kind elderly couple, the Kents, who named him Clark, and raised him as if he were their own son. As the boy grew, he developed extraordinary powers: super-strength, X-ray vision, the ability to fly, and more. When he sheds his identity of Clark Kent, he becomes Superman: The Man of Steel.

The most recent Superman series, this title continues to bring readers the adventures of the world’s best-known super-hero. These intertwine with the stories contained in Superman (2nd Series), Action Comics, and Adventures of Superman. To keep things straight, each issue features a triangle-number on the cover showing the sequence of the stories.
