Man of Steel infographic: How Superman became a super source of revenue

Clark Kent is bringing in more money than ever on the silver screen with the new release of Man of Steel

Since swooping into the comic book industry and taking America by storm in the 1930s, Superman has been both a superhero in action and a super source of revenue.

With his extra-human superpowers, Superman has succeeded in not only coming back from the dead and fighting all villains in his way on paper, but he has also made numerous movie appearances and is bringing in more money than ever on the silver screen with the new release of Man of Steel.

In honour of Man of Steel’s release we’re taking a look back on Superman’s super career. From the first release of Action Comics #1 in 1938, which sold for mere pennies compared to what it’s worth today, to the 2006 release of Superman Returns which made over $200,120,000, Superman has already had a lot of accomplishments to look back on.
