Truth, Justice, & The American Way

Back in a time before angst and self loathing became the dominant cultural theme, Superman was a shining icon for patriotism. He didn’t take a backseat during World War 2, fighting Nazis and Japanese whenever he could!

This leads us to one of the great, classic comic book covers of the 1940s – Superman # 14, dated January-February 1942. The Japanese had just bombed Pearl Harbor and the USA shifted from a peacetime to wartime economy.

The nation was mobilizing, and the Man of Steel was along for the ride!
