Superheroes have captivated, entertained and inspired audiences ever since Superman made his comic book debut 75 years ago. This compelling series examines the art form of the comic book superhero and its complex relationship with American culture. Featuring rare footage alongside more than 50 new interviews from pioneers such as Stan Lee, Joe Simon, and Jerry Robinson to contemporary creators including Mark Ward and Grant Morrison, from commentators such as Michael Chabon and Jules Feiffer to iconic actors like Adam West and Lynda Carter, it showcases the evolution of the colorful characters that leapt from the pages of comic books to become the foundation for a multi-billion dollar industry celebrated across the world. Dazzling graphics and remarkable stories illuminate an up-to-the-minute history of the superhero, from the comic strip adventurers of the Great Depression up to the blockbuster CGI movie superstars of the 21st century. Hosted and narrated by Liev Schreiber.
