This year marks the 75th anniversary of the birth of Superman in DC Comics and there's a lot to celebrate: the latest film incarnation, "Man of Steel," comes out in theaters in coming weeks and Larry Tye's book "Superman-The High Flying History Of America's Most Enduring Hero" will be out in paperback.

We revisit our conversation with Tye about the continuing popularity of the man of steel.

This conversation was originally broadcast in 2012.
