Image for Superman Day

Superman Day

Superman Day was started in 2013 by DC Entertainment, two days before the release of the Superman film, Man of Steel. At this time it was known as Man of Steel Day, and it was not until subsequent years that the day simply became known as Superman Day. Both the name change and the continuation of the day seem to have happened organically. On the inaugural day, DC Entertainment partnered with comic book retailers and bookstores across the United States to celebrate the day, and gave out free copies of All Star Superman #1 Special Edition. Superman was created in 1933 by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, but it wasn't until April 18, 1938 that the Superman we know of today appeared, and made his debut in Action Comics #1. It was so popular that Superman got his own comic book the following year.

How to Observe Superman Day

Celebrate Superman Day be doing all things Superman related. Watch Superman movies and TV shows. Read Superman comic books. Listen to songs that reference Superman. Have a Superman themed party. To get more ideas it may be a good idea to read this book. This day could also be used as a day to help people who are in need, as that is what Superman does with his time.
