It’s Superman’s 75th Anniversary! Watch this Cool Animated Short To Celebrate [Video]

Sadly the Iron Giant does not make an appearance.

He doesn’t look it, but Superman turns 75 today! So DC Comics commissioned this tribute by Zach Snyder and Bruce Timm, which follows the last son of Krypton through his many film, TV, and comic iterations — even that crazy Death and Return arc from the ’90s. We’ll admit, watching the Animated Series-inspired part got us just a little verklempt.

Just remember, guys: it’s also Lois Lane’s anniversary too. She doesn’t get a cool animated short commissioned for her by DC comics like the Man of Steel does (And I’m pretty sure Beppo the Kryptonian monkey gets more screen time than her in this short — Beppo, guys?), but she’s every bit as awesome, thanks.
