Good fun but not as good as previous "Superman" programme.
"Atom Man vs. Superman" was quite hard to obtain on video, back in the heyday of that format. I had already seen the 1948 serial of "Superman" and that one is great. My expectations for the above production were only half met. The actor who played Lex Luthor was perfectly satisfactory. It was good to see Kirk Alyn and Noel Neill reprise their respective characters. However, the story as a whole didn't interest me all that much. I found it a bit hard in keeping up with what was happening. That is usually a sign that the writers haven't done a very good job. As before, there are 15 chapters that compromise the whole story but it felt longer than that to me. There is still some fun to be had with this one.
