Sunday Funnies: SUPERMAN
Originally intended by his creators to be a newspaper action and adventure strip, it was only fitting that they'd eventually succeed. Ironically, they invented a whole new genre of comic book characters that continue to this day, all as an unintended side effect of wanting to be in the newspapers like Lee Falk's Phantom.
Quite strange and utterly coincidental, ain't it?
Several things to take note of here; Superman couldn't actually fly at first (only 'leap tall buildings in a single bound'), and he was not against letting people die occassionally. As you'll see in this early outing (which is sequence #4 of the Sunday series if you're a trivia hound).
