The Man of Steel: Superman's Breaking Point Revealed

It's always a bit unsettling when your heroes reach a breaking point. Larger than life superheroes seem *larger than life* because they never get exasperated or let their spirit break.

The Man of Steel: It's Time to Air My Most Shameful Secret...

I've been harboring a really shameful secret for my entire life. But readers, I'm finally ready to share it with the world. Just don't judge me too harshly, okay? Here goes.

Perry White

Metropolis born and bred Perry White is the fearless Editor-in-Chief of world-renowned newspaper The Daily Planet.

Steel

Inspired by Superman's selflessness, John Henry Irons used his engineering genius to reinvent himself into a champion in his own right.

The perfect combination of brains and brawn, John Henry Irons was one of four different people to take up the mantle of Superman when Kal-El lost his life while saving Metropolis from the monster known as Doomsday. Initially referred to by the media using Superman’s nickname, “The Man of Steel,” Irons simply went by Steel when Superman came back from the grave.

Daily Planet photographer Jimmy Olsen is Superman's best pal, and his courage and bravery in the face of danger make him a hero in his own right.

Perhaps the greatest bromance in the DC Universe is the one between photographer and former cub reporter Jimmy Olsen and the Man of Steel, and it goes way back to the earliest days of the Golden Age of comics. As much as Lois Lane is the love of Clark Kent’s life, and Daily Planet editor Perry White is a surrogate father figure, Jimmy Olsen is the kid brother Superman never had.
