When Superman first appeared in comics specifically 's Action Comics 1his alter ego Clark Kent worked for a newspaper named the Daily Starunder editor George Taylor. Superman co-creator Joe Shuster named the Daily Star after the Toronto Daily Star newspaper in TorontoOntariowhich had been the newspaper that Shuster's parents received and for which Shuster had worked as a newsboy.
It was not until later years that the fictional paper became the Daily Planet. But when the comic strip appeared, the newspaper's name A paper on superman permanently made the Daily Planet to avoid a name conflict with real newspapers. In Superman volume 1 5 Summerthe publisher of the Daily Planet is shown to be Burt Mason, a man who is determined to print the truth even when corrupt politician Alex Evell threatens him.
In Superman 6 September—OctoberMason gives free printing equipment to The Gateston Gazette after its editor, Jim Tirrell, is killed and its equipment is destroyed by racketeers that Tirrell insisted on reporting. The story resulted in Perry earning a Pulitzer Prize.
When Luthor, deciding to sell the paper, began taking bids for the Planet, Perry White convinced an international conglomerate, TransNational Enterprises, to buy the paper. They agreed to this venture with only one stipulation: White had served as the Planet editor-in-chief ever since, barring the few times he was absent.
During those times people such as Sam Foswell and Clark Kent have looked after the paper. Franklin Sternan old friend of White's, became the Daily Planet's publisher. The Planet saw its share of rough times during White's tenure. For example, it had many violent worker strikes. The building itself, along with most of the city, was destroyed during the "Fall of Metropolis" storyline; it is only much later that it was restored by the efforts of various superheroes.
The Planet building sustained heavy damages after the villain Doomsday 's rampage. Later, Franklin Stern decided to put the paper up for sale. Lex Luthordisliking the heavy criticism of himself and his company that the Planet became noted for, purchased the Daily Planet and subsequently closed the paper down.
Luthor fired every employee of the newspaper except for four people: As a final insult, Luthor saw to it that the Planet globe was unceremoniously dumped in the Metropolis landfill.
In the Planet's place emerged "LexCom," a news-oriented Internet website that primarily catered to Luthor's views of "quality journalism.
The paper was quickly reinstated, rehiring all of its old staff. Sometime later, ownership of the Planet fell into the hands of Bruce Waynewhere it has remained ever since.
Hush storyline, it is named a subsidiary of Wayne Entertainment. During the "Y2K" storyline involving the city of Metropolis being infused with futuristic technology thanks to a descendant of the villain Brainiacthe Daily Planet building was "upgraded" along with the rest of Metropolis, and a holographic globe replaced the physical one.
Eventually due to temporal instabilities caused by the B13 Virus, Metropolis and the Daily Planet building, globe and all, were restored to their former states.
In the current comics and media spinoffs, the Daily Planet is presented as a thoroughly modern news operation, including operating an Internet website much like most large newspapers. The Planet's reporters also have access to the best modern equipment to aid their work, though Perry White has often been shown as still favoring his manual typewriter.
A contemporary publication is Newstime Magazine, where Clark Kent worked as the editor for a time. The publisher of Newstime is Colin Thornton, who is secretly the demon Satanusan enemy of Superman's.
Birthright[ edit ] In the Superman: Birthright limited series, the Daily Planet's publisher was Quentin Galloway, an abrasive overbearing loudmouth who bullied Jimmy Olsen, and later Clark Kent, before being told off by Lois Lane, whom Galloway could not fire because of her star status.
These changes were explained gradually over the next several years. The mini-series Superman: Secret Origin clarified the earlier history of the Planet in the new continuity.
The story established that while Lex Luthor, in the revised history, owns every media in Metropolis and uses it to enforce his public image as a wealthy benefactor, the Planet had always stood free, refusing him ownership and even condemning his actions in editorials signed by Perry White himself.
As a result, when Clark Kent is first inducted into the Planet, the newspaper was almost bankrupt, dilapidated and unable to afford new reporters. General Sam Lane Lois' father attempted to capture Superman, seeing him as an alien threat. When he failed to do so, he forcibly shut down the Planet as part of an attempt to force Perry White and Lois to turn over any information they had on Superman that they haven't released to the public.
These events lead to the people of Metropolis no longer looking at Lex Luthor as a savior and The Daily Planet becomes the city's top-selling paper, as well as a major player in media. In Final Crisis 2, the villain Clayface triggers an explosion in The Daily Planet building, greatly damaging the offices, leaving many injured and at least one person dead.
