Superman is a fictional comic book superhero appearing in publications by DC Comics, widely considered to be an American cultural icon. Created by American writer Jerry Siegel and Canadian-born American artist Joe Shuster in 1932 while both were living in Cleveland, Ohio, and sold to Detective Comics, Inc. (later DC Comics) in 1938, the character first appeared in Action Comics #1 (June 1938) and subsequently appeared in various radio serials, television programs, films, newspaper strips, and video games. With the success of his adventures, Superman helped to create the superhero genre and establish its primacy within the American comic book. The character’s appearance is distinctive and iconic: a blue, red and yellow costume, complete with cape, with a stylized “S” shield on his chest.
As an influential archetype of the superhero genre, Superman possesses extraordinary powers, with the character traditionally described as “faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound”, a phrase coined by Jay Morton and first used in the Superman radio serials and Max Fleischer animated shorts of the 1940s.
Superman Man of Steel
The new movie Superman, Man of Steel will be directed by Zack Snyder’s and expected to be released in 2013, there’ll be plenty of time for leaked shots of Henry Cavill as well as Michael Shannon (playing Zod) on-set to appear online. However, no doubt some fans have already hopped on a plane (or is it a bird?) en route to Plano, a West Chicago town where Snyder will be filming throughout August.

Below are step by step images of how to draw Superman.
Step 1, I start out with simple shape to draw his massive chest, torso, and his head with the x mark indicate his facial placement.  In step 2, I begin to construct anatomy muscle group for his body and arm.  You will notice there are chest muscles, shoulder, biceps, and triceps.  Step 3, I sketch out his abs, rib cage and the other arm on the further side.  Step 4, I begin to draft his facial structure.  Watch the video above for more detail instruction.
