Legions of fans from Boston to Buenos Aires can recite the story of the child born Kal-El, scion of the doomed planet Krypton, who was rocketed to Earth as an infant, raised by humble Kansas farmers, and rechristened Clark Kent. Known to law-abiders and evildoers alike as Superman, he was destined to become the invincible champion of all that is good and just. Tye takes us back to Superman's birth at the hands of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, his young, nerdy creators. He introduces readers to the cast of characters who spun and sketched the Last Son of Krypton's adventures and played him on the little screen and the big one. Superman's tale is not just the tale of an American hero but a lens through which to see our best selves.
