On this day in 1938, the first Superman comic book was published. Over the years they've done some mean, ugly things to him (Superman III), Bizarro Superman, Jimmy Olsen goes back in time to WWII and becomes a Nazi commander and the right hand to Hitler.

But Superman lives, despite the abuse. He shows no wounds, because he is a true superhero, because he is.... The Man Of Steel.

He is 77 today, and still looks 35.
