Description

Was Superman a Spy? demystifies more than 200 urban legends of interesting stories, unbelievable anecdotes, wacky rumors and persistent myths that have piled up like priceless back issues in the 70+ years of the comic book industry. Among them: Elvis Presley’s trademark hairstyle was based on a comic book character (true); Stan Lee featured a gay character in one of Marvel Comics’ 1960s war comics (false); Wolverine of the X-Men was originally meant to be an actual wolverine (true); what would have been DC Comics’ first black superhero was changed at the last moment to a white hero (true); a Dutch inventor was blocked from getting a patent on a process because it had been used previously in a Donald Duck comic book (true). With many more legends resolved, Was Superman a Spy? is a must-have for the legions of comic book fans and all seekers of “truth, justice, and the American way.”
