The Evolution of Superman

Hey guys, this year marks the 75th birthday of one of the first, and certainly most influential superheros of all time. It's no exaggeration when I say I've been a life long Superman fan. I watched the first two Christopher Reeve movies again and again as a kid, and knew them nearly verbatim.  My parents got me a set of Superman Underoos (if you remember those things), which I wore under my clothes to hide my "secret identity". I even carried my Kenner Superman action figure everywhere I went.
        As for this picture, I planned on doing this a few weeks ago for his official birthday, but I got tied up with other work, so hopefully better late than never. In a few weeks, Man of Steel opens, and I couldn't be more excited to see one of my favorite heroes back on the big screen. It'll be a bit strange without the traditional John Williams fanfare, and I'm one of those people who actually misses his red underpants. (Hey, I'm a traditionalist) From what I've seen from the trailers, it looks spectacular, and I can't wait to see what Zach Snyder has in store.
Special Bonus! Here's one of my earliest drawings ever- a pic of Supes drawn when I was 4 or 5 years old.

Hey! I love your artwork(saw it on geektyrant) but I wanted to ask if you could do Robert Downey Jr with the Mark 42 suit as his most recent role. Thanks!

Great Work, really amazing!, but I just wonder why everybody seems to forget the Louise and Clark Superman, he is the worst, I know! but is a Superman anyway!
