Superman is the superhero persona of a fictional character that appears in comic books published by DC Comics, and is considered an American cultural icon. The character was created by writer Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster in 1933 and later sold to Detective Comics, Inc. (later DC Comics) in 1938.

Superman first appeared in Action Comics #1 (June 1938). Superman has been labeled the greatest comic book hero of all time, and was the blueprint for superheroes as we know them today.

The origin 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 on he started to display superhuman abilities, which, upon reaching maturity, he resolved to use for the benefit of humanity. Superman resides and operates in the fictional American city of Metropolis.

As Clark Kent, he is a journalist for the Daily Planet, a Metropolis newspaper. Superman's primary love interest is Lois Lane and his archenemy is supervillain Lex Luthor.
