Superman: On this day – December 23rd

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…

December 23rd – On this day in 2009, DC Comics publishes Superman issue #695. The Comixology preview reads: “Part 2 of Man of Valor! Metropolis gets a chance to see the new Mon-El in action. But now the stakes are raised even higher and the action escalates as Mon finally goes mano-a-mano against the Parasite! This is a battle that’s been brewing since Mon’s emergence on Earth and now it explodes into the streets and skies of the city. Plus, with Mon-El’s secret identity publicly known, how will the Science Police react to him now that they know he’s been living among them all this time? All this plus the return of Natasha Irons and the fate of Steel!”
