The Man of Steel has had many faces – and voices. Lesser known than his fellow Supermen – Henry Cavill, Christopher Reeve and George Reeves – is the Australian Superman. Yes, you read that correctly. More accurately, Queensland Superman!
Those growing up in the late 1940s–early 1950s might remember the locally-made radio series, starring Brisbane native Leonard Teale (best remembered for his performance in the television series Homicide) as Superman and Margaret Christensen as Lois Lane.
In this version, the character first arrives on Earth as an adult, and his Clark Kent persona is conceived by a man and a boy he has rescued from a certain death.
