Superman's Top Ten List
31 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the episode opens, Metropolis has been hit with a huge crime wave. No one is safe with daily robberies and violent crimes. There is a list of ten top crime bosses, one of which has a question mark rather than a name. Perry White calls a meeting where civic leaders and law enforcement agencies make a commitment to stop this. They bring in Metropolis's number one citizen, Superman, who, going in reverse order, begins to assist the police in bringing each of these bad guys to justice. Now we see scenes of the big guy battling criminals from previous episodes. This is a kind of montage which probably kept the budget down. Of course, the guy he is after is the Mr. Big guy who is controlling the whole shebang. This guy never gets rattled, even though his "business" is going down the drain. I remember the concluding scene from when I was in elementary school and it was fun to see it again.
