Read full description of the books The Superman Chronicles, Vol. 3:
a full-color book reprinting the first half of all the Superman stories published in 1940. Fun and fascinating stuff, as this was only 18 months into Superman's career, and the mythos was being created as it went along. In the first stories here, criminals are routinely killed by actions Superman commits in the heat of battle. Then suddenly, he keeps rescuing them, saying they don't deserve it but they are human beings, and they must be brought to face justice. Luthor appears, with a full head of red hair (until it's inexplicably colored brown in the fourth or fifth story he's in). At one point, Superman develops the ability to mold his face into a perfect disguise. Clark Kent is shown having to remove his clothes and put on his costume. Superman claims he invented the fabric of his costume so it can resist acid. About four or five stories in, the Daily Star becomes the Daily Planet. Joe Shuster is the credited artist, but had a studio, and I'm pretty sure Wayne Boring draws at least the first story in Superman #5, while the second one is drawn by somebody with an entirely different feel for panel layout. And whoever drew the story which appeared in the World's Fair Comics one-shot had some pretty nice Alex Raymond swipes in his collection. None of these stories is great, but you can feel the energy of discovery, and the sheer thrills of suddenly having a character who can leap so high, have bullets bounce off him, climb buildings like a spider (what? - yeah, he did that routinely back then), and outrun locomotives and even stop them by grabbing hold of the last car and pulling back.

Fine, was the American co-creator of Superman (along with Joe Shuster), the first of the great comic book superheroes and one of the most recognizable icons of the 20th century.
