The Writer of Steel
He helped to create a being from another planet with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men.
Along with friend and co-creator artist Joe Shuster (above on the left), writer Jerry Siegel created Superman, the World's First Super-Hero.
Siegel was born on this date (October 17) in 1914. Thanks to Siegel and Shuster a new genre of modern age mythological heroes was born.
