Superman

Seventy-five years after his creation, Superman remains one of America’s most cherished cultural icons.  His legend laid the bedrock of the comic book world and precipitated the very idea of the superhero. In his new biography of the man of steel, Larry Tye chronicles Superman’s creation story and the adventures of the men and women who have ushered the red-and-blue-clad titan through changing eras and evolving incarnations. Friday, we're rebroadcasting our conversation with Tye about America’s most enduring hero.

Larry Tye referred to this image of Superman at the end of his day by Alex Ross. Is he pensive? Depressed?
