The Man Of Steel 25th Birthday Celebration Week - The New Beginning!

It's been fun looking back at the iconic The Man Of Steel mini-series, that launched a new direction and attitude for Superman that lasted a quarter of a century. That's not too shabby a legacy to leave behind, eh?

As we close things out, we'll finish up our celebration by looking at the last page of the final issue.

There's our boy! Coming to terms with his alien heritage, while at the same time recommitting himself to be not only America's protector, but humanities as well.

All in all, it was (and still is) a great little series, even if it did get a little wordy in the last issue. I hope everyone out there had some fun reliving some key moments from the beginning of the Superman era that comes to a close this September. I know I did.

Make sure to come back next week, as we go back to regularly plumbing the depths of the entire storied history of Superman on a daily basis.

  1. It's always bothered me that the bit of cape clutched in Superman's right fist was miscolored. They've never fixed it in any of the reprints, either.
