The original comic book Superman could leap tall buildings in a single
bound. But then he had to come right back down to Earth—because he didn’t
fly. It wasn’t until the 1940s, when animators for a new animated series
decided it would be too difficult to routinely draw him bending his knees,
that it was decided that Superman could take off into the air. Readers got
to see smooth animation and a superhero gained a new power.
