This year DC Comics has been celebrating the 75th anniversary of the greatest and first superhero, Superman. Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and Bruce Timm, who played a pivotal role in establishing DC’s impressive animated franchise, have been working on an animated short to honor the Last Son of Krypton. It’s now finished and available online, so check it out after the break.

From the creative minds of Zack Snyder (Man of Steel) and Bruce Timm (Superman: The Animated Series) and produced by Warner Bros. Animation, this short follows Superman through the years, from his first appearance on the cover of Action Comics #1 to Henry Cavill in this year’s Man of Steel…all in two minutes!

After watching the short, be sure to check out DC Comics’ official list of annotations:
