Superman is an American super hero who has looked after the country and kept it free from far nastier characters in lurid tights and costumes. He is said to be based on the life and career of Joseph Stalin, the Russian communist super hero whose own code name translates from Russian as 'Steel' . Superman is famous for blatantly defying the laws of physics, doing good deeds and generally being nice to people unless they want to take over the world or evade parking tickets.
No one actually respects Superman, but everyone envies his tight buttocks and ability to appear credible in public while wearing his underpants outside his trousers.
Conspiracy theorists allege that Superman was once originally a citizen of Indonesia. Actually he was born on Krypton and sent here by his father, Jor-el, to save the planet Earth. Obviously, he has failed.
On Krypton everything looks a bit futuristic, with a lot of crystals and post-modernistic structures, and some really cool houses that were actually houses carved from enormous rock crystals. Krypton was drowning in debt, all jobs off shored to Indiaton or Chiniaton, and their former leader Bush-El had countless wars in the Neutral Zone over an energy source that had drained Krypton of money and resources. There were no plants left and global cooling had begun due to pollution. It wasn't long before the population began to die off of starvation, freezing and being struck from above by giant falling crystals. The Kryptonian economy had collapsed, cheap knock-off crystals made in third world worlds fell apart, and global cooling had caused cracking in the inferior crystals.
Kal-El's father, knew it was only a matter of time before the entire planet exploded when the cheap crystals blew up. But like Al Gore, he was ignored. The Kryptonian government disliked spending money on saving the planet, preferring to allocate more funding to hiring Marlon Brando to play Kal-El's father. The planetary government agency responsible for stopping these types of things was left bankrupt due to budget overruns causing the system's sun to explode, killing everyone.
Knowing his entire race was doomed, Kal-El's father conceived a brilliant plan that involved launching his infant son to a planet a quad-trillion miles away, praying he didn't land in the ocean that covered 70% of the planet's surface; lest his son bring shame to the house of El by becoming Aquaman. To explain everything to Kal-El, his father sent his message in Kryptonese, a language remarkably similar to American English. The economy was bad and all Jor-El could afford was a rocket just large enough for his son. No time to make a rocket for his wife Laura or himself; just two seperate test rockets for a dog and a monkey. Earth was picked because it had a better economy, and a medium sized yellow sun that would give Kal-El super powers and enable him to wear his underwear on the outside.
As it happened, the rocket landed in a city called Smallville in the state of Kansas in the nation of the USA. George and Martha Kent found the rocket with the baby in it, and decided to adopt it and forge a birth certificate so that Kal-El can pass for human and a US citizen. This was, of course before the Department of Homeland Security was formed so the birth certificate appeared to be legit, so Kal-El can run for President some day despite not being born in the USA or Earth, and somewhere else. But Kal-El as Superman stands for truth, justice, and the American way, just ignore his origins and questinable legitimacy of his birth certificate and other lies passed off as the truth.
edit The Superman's first appearance
Superman made his dramatic appearance saving an out-of control space shuttle and it's crew from certain doom. He was not applauded, however, because: A) He had not perfected his super-hero-suit-making technique, and his said suit actually disintegrated as part of a "wardrobe malfunction". Thus, people were too busy laughing at his Kryptonian junk to thank him. Also, B) when they found out he had been fully powered, and on Earth during 9/11, Katrina, the Challenger and Columbia crashes, and the Star Wars Prequels, they became enraged that he hadn't revealed himself sooner, and tried to beat him to a pulp.
edit The Movie
Superman soon became one of the most famous and iconic figures of Metropolis, despite his strange habit of getting mistaken for a bird or a plane. It wasn't long before he had a movie deal under his belt, a deal that would lead to the greatest comic-book epic ever made: Person who normally does things better than other people.
They ended up making a movie with the more catchy title Superman, and the movie was a huge success, and they made another one that was an even bigger success. Then, they made one which didn't do so well critically, but was still pretty sweet at the box office. And then they made one which just fucked everything up, and caused Superman to vanish for 20 years.
He did return, though. With a title clearly written by Captain Obvious, Superman returned, and nobody gave a flying fuck. Seriously, his epic return went something like this:
Superman fireballs though Earth's atmosphere, crashes into the ocean, and emerges from his shuttle.
SUPERMAN: Hey guys, I'm back!
BATMAN: Nobody cares.
SUPERMAN: What?! How could that be? I'm SUPERMAN, the greatest hero ever to grace the silver screen. As a matter of fact, I'm really the only one, aside from you.
BATMAN: Yeah, about that... Remember that little comic company called Marvel?
SUPERMAN: What, the hacks with the stupid spider-guy? What about them?
BATMAN: Dude, the stupid spider-guy is now the top-grossing comic book character ever.
SUPERMAN: No way! Well... I'm still the most best around here at DC, right?
BATMAN: Well, actually... Geez, now I feel guilty about it.
SUPERMAN: Come on, Batty-Man! Who is it? Wonder Woman? I heard she had some kind of screen deal going on. I know it's not you, cause when I left they were talking about signing on George Clooney and Arnold Schwarzenegger for some really campy movie. What was it, Batman and Blue Jay?
BATMAN: First of all, it's Robin, not Rob Bannn! bitch!.
BATMAN: And besides, that's in the past... thank God. I had a reboot out in 2005, and everyone loved it. We're doing a sequel, and it's pretty anticipated. We got a deal with Heath Ledger. He said he had a great idea about how to do the Joker. I hate to tell you this, Superman, but... I am the most popular guy at DC.
SUPERMAN: Who's Heath Ledger?
BATMAN: Heath Ledger was a fucking loser who thought he rebooted the Joker, which he didn't because Jack Nicholson's Joker is the bar none!
GREEN LANTERN: Fuck you both! I'm getting a movie now, and I'll rape your asses with my bling!
SUPERMAN: JUST WAIT AND SEE!
BATMAN: We'll rape Marvel, just wait and see!
SPIDERMAN: Hey did Marvel tell you guys we got new Iron Man, X-Men, and Marvel Alliance movies coming out soon... Yeah we're on top now bitch.
edit Special Powers
Superman has, to put it in poetic terms, a whole shitload of powers. (He blames it all on the fact that Earth's sun is a different color than one he's used to.) His generally gigantic quantity of them, and the invulnerability they give him makes him slightly boring among some comic book fans. They don't complain though, lest he knock them out with his laser beams and kill them with his poison gas, all before disintegrating their bodies with his nuclear rays. His powers are the following:
- XXX-Ray Vision: Superman has the ability to see women as they would be completely nude.
- Flying: Yes, he can fly. And before you start talking about "being original" and "being unique," remember: this was original and unique. In the '40s.
- Superintendent: Before getting his pilots license; Superman could only fix tall buildings in a single bound.
- Super Speed: Yeah, super-speed... So Flash had this skill of having super speed, and super speed only. So of course, Superman had to be a dick and take this speed, along with 10,000 other cool tricks. Knowing that Superman was superior to him in every way, Flash killed himself, and Superman laughed at his funeral and banged his girlfriend on the coffin. What a dick.
- Invincibility: While every other superhero can actually get hurt when punched, hit, etc, Superman appears to be invincible, so that it is impossible to defeat him, unless around Kryptonite. If a nuclear bomb hit Superman, he'd still live. If a meteor hit Superman, he'd still live. But if a piece of green rock touched him, he's fucked.
- Super-Breath: This is actually a real power of Superman. He can blow on things until they freeze. What's that? Well, yeah he does blow, but... Stop laughing, OK? It's not that funny, really.
- BluRay Vision: Superman sees everything in 1080p and hears everything in DTS-HD Master Audio.
- Super Strong: Superman is so strong. He also stole this power from Captain Marvel. Captain Marvel sued him and lost his ass to Superman. Superman keeps it on the wall in his Fortress of Solitude. He also keeps a blue dress that is covered in his jism, which was once owned by Lois Lane. Just in case.
- Super-Prefixing: Superman can put the word Super in front of any frickin' thing he does. It's just magical.
- Super-bad camouflage: Superman has the ability to disguise himself so badly as a specky geek, by only wearing a suit and some glasses. This disguise is so blatantly obvious, nobody has noticed ever, not even Lois Lane.
- Souper: Superman can drink soup. From a bowl or other similar receptacle.
- Super Fashion Sense: Since the beginning of his career, Superman has been in touch with his feminine side, which has made it easy for him to stay on top of the fashion world through the decades. Incidentally, he is a recurring guest at modeling shows and conventions, essentially because he is the perfect example of why you don't mess with the classics.
edit Infinite Mid Life Crisis
As Superman is death proof, he experiences mid life crises perpetually; always trying to re fashion design himself. He briefly got a divorce between his red and blue parts; losing most of his powers in the settlement, though many suspect it was so he could legally have 2 wives without moving to Utah. For some reason he thought he Static Shock and got lightning powers; but Static told Superman to stop copying his generations sense of style just to seem hip and younger. Clark also experimented with alternative time styles like communism and jungle nudism; during his college grunge phase in the 90's. Being so straight laced and unpopular from the 60's up until his Hollywood debut in 78, caused Superman to lose it in 1985 until 2005. Unable to find his flying roots or re invent himself, Clark but was soon back in his business suit.
edit The DC 52 Reboots
Warner Brothers owned DC Comics, and sales had suffered. Nobody wanted to read Superman comic books or watch Superman movies anymore. So DC rebooted the entire comic book series along with everything else into the New 52. Superman had changed he no longer wore underwear on the outside, and he had a collar on his cape and a new power suit like Batman had, but with the "S" symbol on it.
Kal-El used to be known as Clark Kent, but after the reboot George and Martha Kent died as a young age and Clark had to grow up an orphan on the streets. Due to lawsuits with the creators of Superman, DC could no longer call him Superboy, so they just had him wear Jeans, Sneakers, and a T-Shirt with the "S" symbol on it. Clark would report on his blog using his iPhone, and work as "Unknown" until he turned 18, and found the super suit and became Superman.
After finding out Clark Kent was not that good of a disguise as all he did was wear glasses as a hipster and comb his hair different, Kal-El decided to fake Clark's death and do work as a Fire Fighter and no longer wear glasses or comb his hair differently. He called himself Joe Clark, and hung out at a firehouse until an alarm happened and then fought fires. After his shift was over he went to the Justice League satellite to pick on Batman for not having any super powers.
Superman seems to have the same powers as before, except that one of his weaknesses added was a weakness to copyrights as he could no longer use Superboy, Clark Kent, or some other names due to a lawsuit his original creators' families filed against DC.
A brand new Superman Movie called "Man of Steel" is in the works, that will reboot Superman in the movies. No details on it yet, except that it might be as good as the Batman trilogy, but perhaps better than that Green Lantern movie, which was about as good as chunky bits of bodily waste floating in a bag of douche which is lodged in the asshole of an undead zombie chewing through the stomach fat of a dead whale rotting on the beach in hundred degree weather right next to a landfill and a desecrated cemetery with a busted sewer line raining brown shit-water down on all the corpses and garbage. Ryan Reynolds rules.
Furthermore, Superman and Lois Lane are no longer married in the reboot. In fact they were never married and Lois Lane has no idea what Superman's true identity is anymore. This was done for Generation-Y who are too young to get married and DC felt that having Superman married would hurt sales. So the marriage was gone, and in place DC claimed Kryptonians have several different genders, and that Kal-El while he appears to be male is actually something else not defined yet. Plus the "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex" jokes got to be too much for DC to bear.
