The world’s most famous superhero “Superman” celebrates his platinum anniversary this month with the new film of the famous series, “Man of Steel” hitting the theatres. The character was imagined by a pair of Jewish teens from Cleveland about three-quarters of a century ago and since then he has fought for “truth, justice and the American Way”, the New York Daily News reported.
One of the best-known portrayals of Superman was by Christopher Reeves, who starred as the Kryptonian in four feature films during the 1970s and 1980s.
Clark Kent/Kal-El is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question, “Why am I here?”. Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha and Jonathan Kent, Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions.
When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
