One of the best Superman cartoons
16 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mt. Monokoa (located on a nice little island) seems like it's about to erupt. Naturally there's a town right at the base of the mountain. Reporters Clark Kent and Lois Lane are sent to cover the story for the Daily Planet. While there Lois hides Clark's press pass so she can see the mountain for herself and "scoop" him on the story. While Lois is at the top of the mountain it explodes! She's trapped up there with the lava flowing all around. Superman is around but how can he save her and the entire town?

Very good cartoon--quick-moving, beautifully animated and some very nice sequences when the volcano explodes. Never a dull moment--I especially like how Lois tries to escape from the lava! Worth catching.
