Welcome to episode 27 of The Thrilling Adventures of Superman. The show’s mission is to explore the history and development of the Superman in his formative years by chronicling the Man of Steel’s Golden Age adventures in comics, radio and film.
It’s back to the newspapers as Michael looks at the colossal-sized eighth storyline from the Superman daily strip. Running 96 strips for more than three-and-a-half months, the story sees Superman confronting foreign terrorists as they attempt to kill visiting royalty! Plus, Clark Kent a hero? Or is he a traitor? And the most shocking puzzler of all, is Lois Lane actually being nice to… Clark Kent?! It’s a thrill a minute, folks! Don’t miss it!
You’ve met your match, Superman!
