On Thursday June 13th, legendary comics artist John Romita Jr spoke about some of his favorite moments in Superman history. Romita has a particular fondness for the groundbreaking ‘Death of Superman’ storyline. “This is an indestructible character, and we killed him. It changed a lot of things and I thought it was a brilliant production. It also sets the character to be a little more down to Earth,” Romita said. He also had high praise for Superman’s first battle against Lex Luthor in ‘Action Comics’ #23.“That first important battle with Superman is another key moment. Any villain after that takes a backseat. He's the first major bad guy for Superman,” Romita said.
At the end of the day, Romita concluded that Superman’s debut in ‘Action Comics’ #1 is the single most important moment in the Man of Steel’s famed career. “Think about what that has done to the industry, 1938 and here we are all these years later. And until I’d worked on the character, I hadn’t thought of it. I thought about the creation of other superheroes, but this is stunningly important. The creation of the character is the greatest moment in the history of the character. How can it not be? And anybody who disagrees with me is crazy,” Romita said.
