Daily Panel | The birth of Superman
From the very first Superman newspaper strip (16 January 1939) by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
The newspaper strip filled in all the Krypton stuff that Action Comics had glossed over, so this was the first appearance of Superman's parents. I think it's interesting that his mom bears a striking resemblance to another important woman in his life.
