It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s Marc Tyler Noblemen, author of Boys of Steel, who shared the secrets behind Superman and Batman with Eagle Hill School students on Oct. 3.

Mr. Nobleman, a native of Greenwich and author of more than 70 books, including Bill the Boy Wonder: The Secret Co-Creator of Batman, and Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman, charmed the students of Eagle Hill School with his insight into the wonder of the Superman and Batman series.

Within moments, he had them guessing the years of various Superman comic covers, showed them photos of himself as a young “Superman” and led them through the reasons why he has been a lifelong fan of these superheroes.

More importantly, Mr. Nobleman inspired the students with his diligence in research, the reason his books include such detail about the lost writers of Superman and Batman. Boys of Steel received multiple starred reviews and made the front page of USA Today for a discovery Mr. Nobleman made during his research.

With his fun and engaging presentation, Mr. Nobleman reminded the students that it’s not enough to just “Google” a question and stop there. Not all of us have x-ray vision, so we need to dig deeper sometimes to find the clues to great information, he told students.
