Up Up and Away!!!
On this date in 1996 SUPERMAN co-creator Jerry Siegal died at age 81. He and Joe Shuster created SUPERMAN in 1932 and sold it to Detective Comics.
They created a boy’s dream: someone to stand up against bullies, leap buildings in a single bound, and was faster than a speeding bullet.
However, the super hero creators, learned quickly truth, justice, and the American way when they lost their royalty rights in court. Detective Comics and other comics through the years made millions. Not so with the creator. They had to settle for the meager amount of $94,000.
That is the American way isn’t it? The rich get the biggest cut… that way, the rich can be happy and spend money and it will dribble down to the poor (if we are good). That is just logical economics.
