In these tales from the early 1940s, Superman continues to face social injustice as he battles some of his earliest foes, including mad scientist Lex Luthor. The Man of Steel was in his Golden Age, and with each new story, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster were continuing to expand and enrich the world of their still-relatively new creation. In these early adventures, Superman faces the Emperor, whose nonresistance ray enables him to take over the presidency; a renegade scientist who controls darkness; a notorious pirate who has mysteriously returned; Mr. Sinister, who uses a secret ray to hijack entire buildings, and more. Plus, Superman's foe the Prankster makes his debut, and Lex Luthor survives the electric chair! And Clark Kent goes to the movies and sees his costumed alter ego leap into action in an animated cartoon. Superman: The Golden Age Vol. 4 collects adventures from World's Finest Comics #6-8, Superman #16-19 and Action Comics #48-57.

Almost immediately after his first appearance in comic books in June 1938, Superman began to be adapted to other media. The subsequent decades have brought even more adaptations of the Man of Steel, his friends, family, and enemies in film, television, comic strip, radio, novels, video games, and even a musical. The rapid adaptation of the Man of Steel occurred before the character and storyworld were fully developed on the comic book page, allowing the adaptations an unprecedented level of freedom and adaptability. The essays in this collection provide specific insight into the practice of adapting Superman from comic books to other media and cultural contexts through a variety of methods, including social, economic, and political contexts. Authors touch on subjects such as the different international receptions to the characters, the evolution of both Clark Kent's character and Superman's powers, the importance of the radio, how the adaptations interact with issues such as racism and Cold War paranoia, and the role of fan fiction in the franchise. By applying a wide range of critical approaches to adaption and Superman, this collection offers new insights into our popular entertainment and our cultural history.
