I was just trying to think at what age I discovered Superman. I think I was 6 or 7. You guys?

Honestly I couldn't say... I literally was too young to remember, as in 3 years old I'd guess as the youngest since there's photos of me at that age pretending to be Superman.

Still remember – 1995, winter, Saturday, around nine and half in the morning. I saw Superman: The Movie for the first time. It made quite an impression on me.

I was 6 years old.

I was 7 when Superman The animated series started airing on tv where i live, before that only Batman Tas used to air and coupled with the 90's Batman movies coming out every two years and Action figures,i was a Batman lover but the first time i saw the promo for Superman tas and saw that red yellow and blue suit...I was enchanted. After watching a couple of eps. i was sooo into Superman, my dad dug up this VHS tape of Superman the movie that i didn't even know we had and you can guess what happened after that. It was just a plus that a few years after that Smallville started. Nothing's come between Supes and me ever since.

I had a copy of Superman IV: The Quest for Peace on VHS when I was a little kid so I've known about him since I was about four.

Depends. I always knew superman, since I was little. Still, I actually started reading his stuff consistently (and making up with like 30 years of back issues) 7 years ago. So I'd say I was like 19.

I think I was 5, and it was some old cartoon where superman could only jump far and be really strong, no flying

@tyreid: cool story but kind of disturbing you laughed at your cousin's beating. :/

I discovered Superman when I was 8 years old but I am introduced to Batman first by my grandmother, she bought me a tall Batman toy when i was 4 or 5 years old and then 5 inches Batman action figure as a Kinder graduation gift( I didn't even know that Batman have a best friend name Superman, all I know is Robin.lol) but anyway when I found out about Supes, I already know in my mind and in my heart that he is the Best of all the Superhero, I didn't even know before that he is an Alien. But now that I'm familiar with their History/Story, Superman is my Top favorite DC Superhero followed by Batman(#2) & GL(#3).
