History of Superman...
- man of steel...red underwear or blue underwear? Why did it change?
When man of steel was first created, he was wearing red underwear on the outside but later on, DC changed it to blue underwear because they believed it looked better for the generation present.
- Krypton - what is it?
Krypton is the fictional planet where Superman is from in the DC Comics.
- Why was it important to Superman?
Because that is his real home and he wanted to remember the planet and his parents who died.
- What part did Superman's parents have in his survival?
Superman's parents sent him to earth just before their home planet exploded along with Jor-El and Lara. (Superman's Parents) When Superman's Fortress of Solitude, he honored his parents by making a statue of them holding a globe of Krypton
- Original powers? Did he fly in the beginning?
When the idea of superman was first created, he was a villain but then it was decided that he was better as a hero. He couldn't fly, only take giant jumps and he probably would have been killed by a bullet.
- What changed in term of his super powers?
At the beginning, he could take giant jumps, run fast enough only to pass an express train and could only withstand a bullet. Whereas now, he can fly through space, run faster than light, withstand an explosion and move planets. He is definitely stronger and an better hero.
- Daily planet - his workplace...how does he adapt between his human workplace and being a superhero?
He had to look, eat and behave like a human to prevent people from finding out who he was and where he was from. But when he changed into Superman, he had to pretend that he didn't even know Clark Kent (His human identity) and continue to save people.
