After the success of “Action Comics” No. 1, Superman returned in 1939 with “Superman” Vol. 1, No. 1, becoming the first comic character to get a self-titled comic book. The issue reprinted some material from “Action Comics” No. 1 for new readers and introduced Superman’s adoptive parents, then named John and Mary Kent. Shuster’s cover shows the caped hero leaping above skyscrapers; the character initially did not possess flight abilities. (DC Entertainment)
