Itís difficult to overstate Supermanís impact. First created in 1934 by Toronto-born Joe Shuster and Cleveland native Jerry Siegel, the original superhero burst into the public consciousness 75 years ago. He continues to awe and inspire with this yearís Man of Steel. In Superman: Everyone Wants a Piece of His Legend, senior Star journalist Sandro Contenta chronicles the theft and recovery of actor Nicolas Cageís copy of the comic that marked Supermanís debut. And he relates the epic, ongoing struggle for the rights to Superman.
