The Mad Scientist threatens to use his Electrothanasia-Ray to cause "total destruction" to the fools who had laughed at him. Lois Lane pilots an airplane to his mountaintop laboratory, but The Scientist has her bound and gagged before she knows it. He forces her to watch on a television screen as his ray destroys a famous bridge. Next, he uses the ray to topple over the Daily Planet, but Clark Kent changes to Superman in time to save the building and put his indestructible body in front of the ray. The Mad Scientist is thrilled at the opportunity to pit his deadly machine against the Man of Steel.Written by

I thought that the Superman cartoons were awesome and the characters were really good and all had great personalities. The animation in My opinion was crisp, clean, and really clear especially for the time. Not to mention beautiful! These characters are some of the most colorful and talented ever seen in My opinion. In fact, they are like real people and you sometime forget that your are watching a animated cartoon. The things that goes on in this series' are in My opinion exciting which is what makes it great! There are so many great ones to like. If you like Superman, DC Comics and classic cartoons then I strongly recommend that you head over Amazon.com today and purchase this classic show today!
