The History of Invulnerability

Milwaukee

We all know that every superhero has an origin story, but perhaps no comic book lore is more famous than the Man of Steel – son of Jor-El and Lara, and hero to Metropolis. And yet, the real beginnings of Superman’s creation are filled with controversy and doubt. From Tony Award and Emmy-nominee, David Bar Katz, comes the larger-than-life account of Jerry Siegel – the Jewish teenager who created Superman in the wake of World War II, sold his prized-possession for $130, and spent the rest of his life trying to bring Superman back home. An ensemble of actors portray dozens of characters, as the heroics and heartbreak of 1930s Cleveland, Auschwitz, New York, and Krypton jump from the panels of comic book legend and come to life before your very eyes.
