A look at how some musicians have referenced the Man of SteelBy Sean NelsonSpecial to MSN MusicSince his debut in the pages of Action comics in 1939, Superman has proved to be one of the most durable icons in popular culture. He has also made a name for himself as a go-to metaphor for songwriters. In honor of the Man of Steel's latest cinematic resurrection (in "Man of Steel," out June 14), we present this list of songs -- some great, some less so -- that draw on Superman's near-invincibility to express feelings of both power and powerlessness. And the desire to fly that resides in all of us.Bing: More about 'Man of Steel' | More about EminemKeep up with MSN Music: Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.(AP/Warner Bros. Pictures/AP)
