VIDEO: Collection - Superman Sells Out

When Superman burst into the American cultural consciousness in 1938, his popularity was immediate and startling in its fervor. The man of steel became an icon almost overnight, Harry Donenfeld and DC Comics did what any self-respecting business would do; they exploited the fuck out of their new smash character, leading to an advertising and merchandising bonanza which continues to this day. This collection of decades worth of commercials and PSA's, curated for Network Awesome, demonstrates that beyond being a myth and an icon and a hero, Superman is also an accomplished salesman.
