The Encyclopedia of Supermanic Biography

Founded on and continuing The Great Superman Book by Michael L. Fleisher

The Great Superman Book was published in 1978 and was intended to be a complete biography of everything Superman. Fleisher spent 10 years doing research for the book, however, and by the time it was published it was out of date, covering only material from 1938 to 1964.

The goal of Supermanica is to incorporate, update, and expand the existing Fleisher material to cover the complete history of Superman from 1938 to 1986. Further, instead of limiting the canonical source material to Action Comics, Superman, and World's Finest, all of the existing Superman titles of the time are being used.

The initial list is then

Action Comics; Adventure Comics; Superboy; Supergirl; Superman; Superman's Pal, Jimmy Olsen; Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane; and World's Finest. For a more complete list, see canonical sources.

Supermanica is a free and collaborative open-source project, meaning that anyone who visits the site is able to update and edit it. Please use this great power responsibly.

The name "The Encyclopedia of Supermanic Biography" is the title that the Michael L. Fleisher of Earth-1, Michael Fleischer, used for his much larger multi-volume version of The Great Superman Book (MM).
