Superman turns 83: four comic book stories that must be made into a movie


Superman remains one of the world’s most popular pop culture icons. In many ways, he is the representative of the comedic medium, the archetype of the superhero. He is also one of the oldest comic book superheroes yet to be published, making his debut on April 18, 1938.

He was also set to get the first “modern” superhero movie, with elaborate visual effects, starring Richard Donner’s 1978 director, Superman, starring Christopher Reeve.

Fans celebrated the 83rd birthday of Krypton’s last son on Sunday. While the character has been adapted into live-action a number of times, here are five big stories we want Warner Bros and DC to do:

Calvin Ellis is basically Barack Obama becoming Superman. And doesn’t that sound great? A Superman outside of DC’s main continuity, Ellis was originally a Kryptonian and was sent to Earth to escape the destruction of Krypton. He was then raised by an American couple as their son. But he differs from Clarke Kent in that he is also President of the United States, while Clarke is a reporter for the fictitious Daily Planet newspaper.

Superman: red son


What if a baby Superman crumbles in the Soviet Union instead of the Kansas countryside? How would the United States react to a patriotic Soviet Superman? Superman: Red Son asks some interesting questions. It’s not just the novelty that makes this story interesting, it’s also the way it handles the parallel world storyline. The story has already been adapted into animation. Now all it takes is a live movie.

Superman: What happened to the man of tomorrow?

Written by Alan Moore, drawn by Curt Swan and inked by George Pérez, Superman: What Happened to the Man of Tomorrow? serves as a conclusion to the story of Man of Steel and very moving to that too. If he is portrayed faithfully on the big screen, what happened to the man of tomorrow? could be one of the best superhero movies of all time.

Superman All-Star

Another emotionally rich story of Superman, All-Star Superman reduces the character’s mythology to its most essential elements. This may be the definitive Superman story, and it’s easily one of the best comic book arcs ever put on paper.
