Established with firm Canadian roots, SUPERMAN™ was the first SUPER HERO™, spawning countless new characters in the DC COMICS™ pantheon. He was the inspiration for a new archetype that not only still exists today, but is more popular than ever. Many important Canadian visionaries continue to shape the DC COMICS™ Universe even today, lending their talents as storytellers and further building on the history that began in 1938. The reverse design mimics a comic book splash page with its engraved rendition of SUPERMAN™. Standing with legs apart and fists clenched, SUPERMAN™ radiates strength and resolve as he lifts his eyes to the skies. The application of blue, red and yellow colour over the detailed engraving recreates his iconic costume and S-Shield as his red cape swirls around him with each movement. On the left, the Silver-Age Fortress of Solitude rises up behind SUPERMAN™, while the classic SUPERMAN™ telescopic logo is seen on the right side. A laser halftone pattern adds a modern graphic element that fills the background while infusing the entirety of the design with a classic comic book feel.
