Superman on the Radio

Everyone knows Superman's origin story.  Baby sent to Earth from the doomed planet of Krypton by his parents, baby Kal-El is adopted and raised by the Kents.  Over the years there have been reboots and different media, but this has been the one constant for Big Blue.  Well, almost.  The radio show The Adventures of Superman had Supes already grown by the time he reached Earth.  He took on the disguise of Clark Kent with the help of a professor who befriends him.  The show ran from 1940 to 1951, and later retconned this change to bring it's narrative back in line with the comics.
