It was a time of international tensions, a time of hope and fear—when rock 'n' roll, UFOs, and the Communist menace preoccupied America; the first time in history when human beings had the power to destroy their world.
It was a time when heroes were needed more than ever.
Evil is loose in the world. As the United States and the Soviet Union race to build their nuclear stockpiles, two extraordinary men are called upon to form an uneasy alliance. Studies in opposites—shadow and light—a Dark Knight and a Man of Steel must overcome their mutual distrust to battle a darkness that threatens humankind. And when the paths of these titans cross, a bold and exciting new chapter of history will be written . . . and nothing will ever be the same.
Jerry Siegel was the American co-creator of Superman, along with Joe Shuster, the first of the great comic book superheroes and one of the most recognizable of the 20th century. He was inducted (with Shuster posthumously) into the comic book industry's Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame in 1992 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1993.
Joe Shuster is co-founder of Minnesota Valley Engineering (MVE), which, under his guidance, became the world's leading manufacturer of high-technology, low-temperature (cryogenic) equipment used in industry, medicine, agriculture, and transportation.
