superman and the imitations
So far this semester we have already spent a good amount of time covering Superman. it makes sense seeing as he is regarded as the most influential and first real superhero. we have also spent time covering the superheroes who were created after superman that are pretty similar and basically just knockoffs. i usually don't like the copies of superman but while i was buying my books i noticed that we will be reading about my favorite superhero, even though he is extremely similar to superman. Samaritan, whose name is also Asa Martin was created basically to be a very similar character to superman/clark kent. I have read some of the stories about him previously, and i am looking forward to the part of the course when we cover the material about him.
