Being Superman is not easy. Kal’EL spends the day avoiding calamities, arresting criminals, and making sure that both Metropyles as the whole world are safe from any threat that may arise. And of course, so much Kryptonian calorie burning … makes you hungry. Good old Superman gained a great deal of popularity after World War II, when American soldiers brought DC comics to the Japanese archipelago.
The influence of Superman in the world of manga it is very important, and not only in the official (or unofficial) adaptations of the dc comics Made with the characteristic style of the Asian country, but also as a source of inspiration for manga like Dragon Ball or, more recently, My Hero Academia.
