The Golden Age of Superman tales are collected for the first time in their entirety in this oversize omnibus series, continued here in SUPERMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE OMNIBUS VOL. 5! Following the Allies' victory in World War II, America was on the move again by the end of 1945. With the return of millions of servicemen from Europe and the Pacific and the lifting of wartime rationing, new suburban housing began springing up across the country, and the great postwar baby boom was soon underway. On the newsstands, the adventures of Superman reflected the nation's changing priorities. While he certainly didn't abandon his championship of the common man (not to mention his never-ending battle for truth and justice), the world's greatest superhero took a noticeably comedic turn in the final years of comics' Golden Age. Now, this pivotal period in the Man of Steel's celebrated career--featuring such stories as "The Average American," "Battle of the Redwoods" and "The Laughing Stock of Metropolis" and co-starring such legendary luminaries as Lois Lane, Mr. Mxyztplk, the Prankster and Lex Luthor--is finally available for the first time in a single hardcover edition. SUPERMAN: THE GOLDEN AGE OMNIBUS VOLUME FIVE collects many stories never before collected, including all of the Metropolis Wonder's tales from ACTION COMICS #86-105, SUPERMAN #34-43 and WORLD'S FINEST COMICS #19-25, and features a foreword by acclaimed comics writer and former DC Comics president Paul Levitz.

Almost immediately after his first appearance in comic books in June 1938, Superman began to be adapted to other media. The subsequent decades have brought even more adaptations of the Man of Steel, his friends, family, and enemies in film, television, comic strip, radio, novels, video games, and even a musical. The rapid adaptation of the Man of Steel occurred before the character and storyworld were fully developed on the comic book page, allowing the adaptations an unprecedented level of freedom and adaptability. The essays in this collection provide specific insight into the practice of adapting Superman from comic books to other media and cultural contexts through a variety of methods, including social, economic, and political contexts. Authors touch on subjects such as the different international receptions to the characters, the evolution of both Clark Kent's character and Superman's powers, the importance of the radio, how the adaptations interact with issues such as racism and Cold War paranoia, and the role of fan fiction in the franchise. By applying a wide range of critical approaches to adaption and Superman, this collection offers new insights into our popular entertainment and our cultural history.

In these tales from the early 1940s, Superman continues to face social injustice as he battles some of his earliest foes, including mad scientist Lex Luthor. The Man of Steel was in his Golden Age, and with each new story, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were continuing to expand and enrich the world of their still-relatively new creation. In these early adventures, Superman faces the Emperor, whose nonresistance ray enables him to take over the presidency; a renegade scientist who controls darkness; a notorious pirate who has mysteriously returned; Mr. Sinister, who uses a secret ray to hijack entire buildings, and more. Plus, Superman's foe the Prankster makes his debut, and Lex Luthor survives the electric chair! And Clark Kent goes to the movies and sees his costumed alter ego leap into action in an animated cartoon. Superman: The Golden Age Vol. 4 collects adventures from World's Finest Comics #6-8, Superman #16-19 and Action Comics #48-57.

Superman may be faster than a speeding bullet, but even he can't outrun copyright law. Since the dawn of the pulp hero in the 1930s, publishers and authors have fought over the privilege of making money off of comics, and the authors and artists usually have lost. Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the creators of Superman, got all of $130 for the rights to the hero. In Empire of the Superheroes, Mark Cotta Vaz argues that licensing and litigation do as much as any ink-stained creator to shape the mythology of comic characters. Vaz reveals just how precarious life was for the legends of the industry. Siegel and Shuster—and their heirs—spent seventy years battling lawyers to regain rights to Superman. Jack Kirby and Joe Simon were cheated out of their interest in Captain America, and Kirby's children brought a case against Marvel to the doorstep of the Supreme Court. To make matters worse, the infant comics medium was nearly strangled in its crib by censorship and moral condemnation. For the writers and illustrators now celebrated as visionaries, the "golden age" of comics felt more like hard times. The fantastical characters that now earn Hollywood billions have all-too-human roots. Empire of the Superheroes digs them up, detailing the creative martyrdom at the heart of a pop-culture powerhouse.
