No matter who you support in DC's latest epic battle, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, you'd have to admit Clark Kent's alter ego is one of the finest comic book creations of all time.

First appearing in 1938, although the color scheme and S symbol have remained, the character's look has differed over the following 78 years.

Let's delve into a photographic journey of discovery, from Kal-El's first comic appearance, to present day Cavill:

1. First Edition (1938) - Action Comics #1

2. Superman Animated Series (1941)

3. The First Live-Action Version Of Superman (Kirk Alyn) - (1948)

4. 'Adventures Of Superman' (1952) - George Reeves As Superman

5. 'Superman: The Movie' (1978) - Christopher Reeve As Superman

6. 'Crisis On Infinite Earths' (1986)

7. 'The Return Of Superman' (1992)

8. 'The New Adventures Of Superman' (1993)
