Summary
The 15-chapter Superman (1948) spans our hero's first arrival on Earth to his alter-ego role as reporter Clark Kent of the Daily Planet through his battle with sinister Spider Lady and her relativity reducer ray. Then in the 15-part Atom Man vs. Superman (1950), our hero faces the dawn of nuclear age. Lex Luthor seems to be behind the UFO and A-bomb that imperils Metropolis.
