Superman. Alien life form with super powers. Occasional Communist threat to America. Whatever you could say about the big fella, we all knew the basic outline of his origins. Marlin Brando stuck him on a rocket to earth from the planet Krypton, which then was destroyed by a supernova. The rocket lands, and the farmers Kent find the super-baby and raise him as their own. Beyond that, the details were vague until Jay Pinkerton hilariously put the pieces together for us.
