Look! Up in the sky! Itís a bird! Itís a plane! Itís Superman! The memorable radio opening is almost as famous as Supermanís colorful costume. Superman debuted in 1938 in the first issue of Action Comics and quickly took America by storm. "Faster than a speeding bullet" the Man of Steel was being broadcast across the country, with Bud Collyer giving the hero his voice. Much of Supermanís mythology originated not in his four-color adventures but on his famous radio series. Copyboy Jimmy Olsen, editor Perry White, and the Daily Planet newspaper were introduced on the radio program, and the Man of Steel first encountered Batman and Robin and the deadly element kryptonite on the air.
