Nazis started calling their legions supermen and it was probably a counterculture front to their dilapidated, social Darwinisms. WWII spawned a lot of Golden Age icons. Never was a DC guy. Marvel has always done a better job of reflecting social issues and man's tribal behaviorism. But sure Christopher Reeve brought a lot of attention to spinal injury and research. Now they can fuse spinal cords on quadriplegic mice. I think Smallville was well done but it's been ages since I watched an episode. Maybe one day they'll give Australia a higher profile hero than the psychedelic aboriginal doing mind melds with Logan.
