  • Lana Lang pays a visit to Metropolis and to Superman

    This is my personal favorite episode of Superman Animated. It's true that there are a lot of more exciting episodes in the whole run of the series but this one is very special since it's one of the few episodes that you can see Lana Lang (the real Lana Lang with red hair!) and the only one where she is the center of the story. I like a lot Lois but the bad part of the animated Lois Lane is that the producers decided to put the romance between Superman and Lois away from the series so it's wonderful to watch this episode and to see the amazing chemistry between Clark and Lana.moreless
