Welcome to episode five 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.
In this installment, Michael takes a look at the Superman story from ACTION COMICS #5. The story might be shorter than the norm, but the excitement is still full-throttle as Superman takes on the very forces of nature itself in a story that bears strange similarities to one of the most well-known Superman stories of all time! Plus, things go to a whole new level between Superman and Lois, kicking off a historic relationship that will become the stuff of legend.
And don’t miss the “Meanwhile” portion of the show where Michael takes a look at the debut of a brand new character over in the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS and how the character’s modern age legacy ultimately ties back to Superman.
