There are a lot of superheroes out there, some are cooler than others. But there is one that is far cooler than the rest. Superman of course. Okay, we know, not everyone is going to agree.

This list is about Superman and giving you a good number of solid reasons as to why you would be perfectly justified in thinking he is the coolest superhero ever!

We will see some quirky things about the making of Superman, strange episodes that he featured in, and interesting trivia concerning the series. Even if you are not a comic book lover you will almost surely find something cool in this list. After all, everybody knows who Superman is. He’s the prototypical superhero. Cape, check. Tights, check. Symbol, check. Super powers, check. Without further ado, these are 25 reasons Superman is one of the coolest superheroes ever!
