How has he changed with the times, and what essential aspects of him have remained constant? This fascinating biography examines Superman as a cultural phenomenon through 75 years of action-packed adventures, from his early years as a social activist in circus tights to his growth into the internationally renowned demigod he is today.
Hardcover: 352 pages
When villains Mr. Mxyzptlk and Mr. Mind construct a diabolical plan, the two powerhouse heroes must work together to get Superman back to his world.

Summer collection inspired by exclusive visit to the DC Comics archives
In a first-of-its-kind partnership, Target Corp. and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, in partnership with DC Entertainment, have teamed up to introduce an extensive summer collection of exclusive Justice League merchandise. The summer collection was inspired by "DC Comics - The New 52" comic book character designs and holds surprises for fans young and old. Featuring the full lineup of DC Comics' iconic Justice League Super Heroes - Aquaman, Batman, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Lantern, Superman and Wonder Woman - the summer collection will launch at all U.S. Target stores and on Target.com beginning May 19.
The summer collection was co-created by the Target and Warner Bros. Consumer Products design teams and features contemporary and nostalgic, vintage-inspired graphics and designs. With more than 50 summer products available exclusively at Target, guests will see the collection come to life in home, stationery, sporting goods, and lawn and garden. Some of the more unexpected items include melamine dinnerware that features a purple and pink-clad Wonder Woman; an apron that transforms the cook into Batman; sand toys that will help beach-goers create Gotham City; and children's Batman, Wonder Woman and The Flash beach towels that double as capes.
"We know Target's guests love discovering unique merchandise, and this collection delivers the unexpected with a dash of great design. Fans of all ages are sure to love these one-of-a-kind summer items," said Greg Van Bellinger, director of product design and development, Target.
"DC Comics' Justice League characters are a powerful assemblage of the most recognizable Super Heroes in the history of comic books. We are incredibly excited to offer fans of all ages a unique collection and collaboration that pairs the heroics of the Justice League characters with the product design and marketing super powers of Target," said Brad Globe, president of Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
In addition to the exclusive summer collection, Target will be part of a broader partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products that will offer more traditional Justice League licensed products. The broader partnership will span more than 20 categories including home, stationery, toys, apparel and accessories. All Justice League licensed products will range from $1 for Justice League temporary tattoos to $59.99 for a Justice League Rocker Chair. Target will also offer Justice League Halloween costumes for kids later this year.
With the release of "Justice League #1" in 2011, DC Entertainment officially kicked off "DC Comics - The New 52" as part of a re-launch of their entire comic book line of 52 new number one issues. "DC Comics - The New 52" Super Heroes are presented in a more contemporary way, including new costumes, characters and storylines.
Pretty Ugly, LLC. and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, on behalf of DC Entertainment, announced today that they have entered into a co-branded collaboration with DC Comics Super Heroes and UGLYDOLL characters. GUND, a division of Enesco, will produce a diverse range of colorful and collectible Super Hero plush based on the DC Comics and UGLYDOLL character universes. The initial release this fall will be a trio that includes two versions of Ice-Bat as Batman and Babo as Superman.
The plush characters will be offered at retail from $20+ and will be available through Diamond Comics and a broad range of retailers. FUNKO is also set to offer a collection of vinyl figures based on the DC Comics and UGLYDOLL plush collaboration during the holiday season this year. Additional categories of merchandise and collaborative characters will be announced in the coming months.
"We've long admired the fun and unique characters and products that Pretty Ugly designs and we are excited to partner with them so they can put their quirky twist on our iconic Super Heroes," said Karen McTier, executive vice president, domestic licensing and worldwide marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. "Working with the most iconic Super Hero brands has been a dream of ours," said Alita Friedman, Chief Brand Officer of Pretty Ugly, LLC. "We were jumping up and down on both sides of the coast, as every sample that passed through our hands was simply amazing. The final versions are hilarious right down to the fun illustrations and stories on the hang tags. Our brands have the utmost respect for each other."
GUND will be previewing their new collaborative plush merchandise at the summer Gift Shows and ASTRA show in June. Diamond Comics will be exhibiting at San Diego Comic-Con in July and in their infamous Previews catalog. FUNKO and others will launch merchandise in time for the holiday season.
