An exhibition celebrating Superman's 75th anniversary has been launched at the Comic-Con International event in California.

The superhero made his comic book debut in 1933, so bosses at DC Comics have marked the occasion by gathering together some of the most iconic costumes from Superman's movie and Tv career.

The exhibit at Comic-Con in San Diego features eight outfits including Christopher Reeves' iconic red and blue suit from the 1978 original movie, as well as the costume he wore as an evil version of the Man of Steel in the third installment.

Dean Caine's turn as the superhero in 1990s Tv series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman is memorialised in the exhibition, which also includes an outfit worn by Smallville star Tom Welling.

Brandon Routh's outfit from 2006's Superman Returns is on display as well as three costumes worn by Henry Cavill in the latest blockbuster Man of Steel.

Comic-Con kicks off on Thursday (18Jul13) and runs until 21 July (13).
