One thousand years from now, a group of super-powered teenagers is inspired by Superman's legacy. As the Legion of Super-Heroes, they dedicate their lives to fighting crime and protecting the citizens of the United Planets. Like many in our current time, members of the 31st Century Legion idolize Superman. They frequent the Superman Museum, marvel at tales of his past, and a few of them even travel back in time to Clark Kent's teenage years. In a future without precise records of the 21st Century, Brainiac 5 (a highly intelligent descendant of Superman's arch foe, the original Brainiac) takes it upon himself to compile a tribute to his hero and friend. Collecting accounts from a myriad of sources, he compiles the greatest historical record in the universe of the life and times of the Man of Steel in The Superman Files.

Produced in conjunction with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Andrews McMeel Publishing is proud to present Brainiac's groundbreaking volume outlining the history and evolution of the heroic icon. From recounting Superman's birth on Krypton as Kal-El and his voyage to Earth onward, The Superman Files provides a fascinating look at the enigmatic figure that millions of fans call their own Super Hero.

Details about Clark's friends—including his beloved Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, and seasoned newspaper editor Perry White, as well as Superman's adversaries Lex Luthor, Brainiac, Doomsday, and Bizarro, appear throughout this remarkable treasure of Superman facts.

A formidable volume filled with exquisite detail, The Superman Files is the perfect gift, a must-have for hardcore Superman fans, and a collector's dream sure to thrill fans past, present, and future.
