Superman memories relived

In 1938's first issue of "Action Comics," the world got its first glimpse of a superhero, and it was never the same again. Superman soon became an icon - not "just of truth, justice and the American way" - but a symbol of good for billions of people, through their childhood and beyond. Super-fans told CNN their stories of what the character has meant to them over the years. (Superman is a DC Entertainment character and DC is owned by Time Warner, also the owner of CNN.)
