Evildoers, beware! Superman is here, and he's younger and hotter than any previous Superman! He'll uphold truth, justice, and the teen consumer way.

This four-disc, 22-episode set continues Supe's quest for the three Kryptonian crystals and his bold attempt to keep those mysterious stones from destroying Earth. As Clark approaches graduation, he becomes a favorite target of that most dreaded of human scum: college football recruiters!

Plus, romance is in the air as Lana Lang gets a boyfriend, Lois Lane comes to Smallville and quickly irritates Clark, Lex Luthor slips further into evil, Chloe continues to get incredible scoops, and Lionel gets an attitude adjustment. On the villain front, Krypto and Mr. Mxyzptlk explode into Superman's life.

Extras include audio commentary on several episodes, a "Being Lois Lane" featurette, 21 deleted scenes, and an "Inside the Writers' Room" documentary.
