Superman III, released in 1983, is the third of the Superman films starring Christopher Reeve. The Man of Steel's mythology is further explored as Clark returns to Smallville for his high school reunion and meets back up with his old friend, Lana Lang (whose actor, Annette O'Toole, went on to play Ma Kent in Smallville ).Is Superman The first superhero?
While not quite the first superhero, he is certainly the Trope Codifier (and "super-" makes him the Trope Namer ). Has been published continuously by DC Comics for eight decades and counting. He first appeared in Action Comics #1 (June, 1938).What are some of the best moments from the Superman movies?
A very serious 'duel' between Superman and his Clark Kent personality (as the hero literally grapples with his darker nature) is widely considered one of the finest moments from the film series.Was Superman originally meant to be a villain?
Ironically, the first character they called "Superman" was intended as a villain with superior mental powers (also ironically looking a lot like Lex Luthor, Bald of Evil and everything). In truth, the character probably inspired the Ultra-Humanite, and the story's title "The Reign of the Superman" has inspired many Mythology Gags since.
