"Pride and Prejudice" is first published, Elvis makes his national TV debut, "We Are the World" is recorded, and the space shuttle Challenger breaks apart after liftoff, all on this day.
1996: Writer Jerry Siegel, the co-creator of the DC Comics character Superman (along with artist Joe Shuster), first published in "Action Comics #1" in June 1938, dies at age 81 in Los Angeles, Calif. Siegel and Shuster sold all rights to the character to DC Comics for $130 in March 1938 and fought a number of legal battles over ownership of the superhero the rest of their lives, eventually gaining recognition for their roles in creating him.
