In honor of the Man of Steel's 75th anniversary this summer, DC Entertainment has unveiled a new red, white, and blue silouette graphic logo that will be a part of many Superman events over the course of the next year -- beginning with DC Comics' launch of the new Superman Unchained series on June 12.

Just two days following the new comics' launch, DC's oldest superhero will appear again on the big screen, when Zack Snyder's "Man of Steel" opens starring actor Henry Cavill in the roll of the super septagenarian. A new animated short will also accompany the slew of new releases later this summer.

He has appeared in thousands of issues of comics, dozens of animated films and movies, and countless kids ' Halloween costumes during his 75 years, but he's not slowing down -- Superman appears to be stronger than ever.

Here are a few of CNET's most notable Superman moments:
