I AM A MAN is a memorable quote uttered by the character Superman in the 1995 comic book Superman: At Earth's End. The quote became popular online after internet critic Linkara did a review of a comic book in which he reenacts the scene in his video. the quote has since become associated with Linkara punching and has been the subject of parodies and remixes.
The quote originated from the DC comic book Superman: At Earth's End which was published on September 1st, 1995. In the scene in question, Superman does battle against an android until he finally shouts "I AM A MAN!" before punching his foe in the gut (shown below, right).
On December 23rd, 2008, internet reviewer and critic Linkara uploaded a video review of the comic book. In the video, Linkara made an emphasis on the line where he does a reenactment of the punching scene.
In the following years, the quote became a running gag in the Atop The Fourth Wall series, where Linkara would reenact the scene with several tweaks and variations.
