- It seems that the first appearance of a "Daily Star" newspaper in comics was actually Action Comics #1, published by DC in 1938. That issue is still under copyright in the United States, until at least Jan. 1, 2034. In Action Comics, The Daily Star was the paper that Clark Kent, aka Superman, worked for before he began working at the Daily Planet, two years later. Though in modern stories, the Daily Star pops up occasionally, but many of them could be erroneous identifications of the Metropolis Star. You should avoid using the DC version of the Daily Star.
- There exists in real-life a tabloid newspaper called "The Daily Star" based in the United Kingdom.
