Superman "The Man Of Steel" has first come to the public mind and consciousness on June 1938 with the first issue of Action Comics#1 in the above picture. Superman was the creation of the writer Jerry Siegel (October 17, 1914-January 28, 1996) and artist Joseph "Joe" Shuster ( July 10, 1914-July 30, 1992). Superman is almost 79 years old and has come a long long way and truly of American creation. How many of you still remember reading Action Comics/DC Comics about the Man of Steel? Is Superman a truly American comics icon? Is Superman still relevant in the Computer Age? Wiki consulted on the information Image source: autodo.info

What makes me wonder up to this date, is why his briefs are outside his suit? Don't get me wrong, I love superman! It's just that this question has been in my mind for a long time now. Does anyone here know?

@JeeyanDee Seriously this is the answer I got from Quora about your question my friend: under the title "Why does Superman wear his underwear on the outside?" "In the 1940s, superheroes such as Batman and Superman and their Justice Society Contemporaries Hawkman, The Spectre, and Dr. Fate wore their underwear on the outside for a different reason. The connotation in that era was not bad fashion sense but related to old time strongmen, wrestlers and acrobats, many of whom were well known for putting on shows for the public. Rather what was implied in the visual iconography of the underoos on the outside was pure physical strength and athleticism above the average mortal." I hope that answer your query my friend.

Not really into comics but who doesn't love superman? I think superman is still relevant nowadays. He's the epitome of superheroes.

I was never really into the Man of Steel to be honest. I was more of a X-Men gal! I love Wolverine!
