I can give this collection no greater praise than the following: I watched every single one of the cartoons in the set. Naturally, being a reviewer, I'm supposed to do that to be as fair and objective as possible, but I watched all of them in a day, nearly in a row. Meaning that I sat through the opening in which I was informed that Superman was more powerful than a locomotive, the surf, and a hurricane, not to mention disguised as a mild-mannered reporter for a major metropolitan newspaper, no less than seventeen times. And I didn't get sick of it.

This set, which collects all of the original Max Fleischer cartoons produced between 1941 and 1942, gives us a rare look at the Man of Steel when his myth was still in its infancy. Here, there is no Jimmy Olsen, no kryptonite and not even a single appearance by Lex Luthor. »
