Superman: On this day – August 30th

By Alex Wiggan

This year, iconic comic book character, Superman celebrates two titanic anniversaries. The first is the 40th anniversary of Superman: The Movie (1978) and the second is the 80th anniversary of the first appearance of Superman (1938). Both are HUGE events.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, the Honcho-SFX blog is presenting a different Superman fact a day!

Yep, 365 facts!

Taking the years 1938 through to 2018, each day the Honcho-SFX blog will serve up a little slice of Superman. So, that’s one fact about Superman or something inspired by Superman, each day, for an entire year covering eight decades of the Man of Steel.

And here’s today’s slice of Superman…

August 30th – On this day in 2006, actor Glenn Ford passes away at the age of 90. The actor was known to Superman fans as Jonathan Kent – Clark Kent’s adoptive father in Superman: The Movie. Ford brought a gentle poignancy to his performance, which is still remembered by fans to this day. Thank you, Glen.
