It’s not a bird! It’s not a plane! It’s Superman!
This superhero from the planet Krypton has not been considered as an alien by the earthlings. Instead, we have accepted this caped hero with arms wide open. Published in 1938 by DC Comics, Clark Kent has been considered as an American Cultural Icon.

3. The 29th of February is his birthday.
4. Clark Gable and Kent Taylor were the two actors from whom the name Clark Kent was made.
5. The first superhero that Clark met was actually Batman!
