DC fans around the world are celebrating Superman Day, an annual celebration of the iconic DC superhero.
Honor the Man of Steel on Superman Day 2022.
Superman Day was started in 2013 by DC Entertainment, two days before the release of the Superman film, Man of Steel. At this time it was known as “Man of Steel Day”, and it was not until subsequent years that the day simply became known as Superman Day.
Superman was created for DC Comics in 1933 by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Schuster. His first appearance was in Action Comics #1, and that marked the beginning of a long and illustrious career for the Man of Steel. In his unmistakable blue suit with red cape, and the stylized red S on his chest, the figure of Superman has become one of the most recognizable in the world.
Superman has been through a lot of changes since his initial creation. His original Golden Age incarnation was actually a villainous character who looks nothing like the current hero. Superman as we know and love him today didn’t appear until Action Comics #1, published on April 18, 1938. His success was such that he got his own comic in 1939, and the world has never looked back since.
Superman is a common character in the world of Funko Pop! vinyl and the DC superhero has appeared in many different Funko Pop! series, including the Pop! Heroes, the Pop! Movies and the Pop! Comic Covers series.
