  • See my review of the Adventures of Superman series which had the Superboy episode in the middle of the show. The Superboy eps were even worse than the main attraction.

    3.0
    I remember missing the first show of this series because of going out of town for my birthday. The next week I saw the second part of that 2-part Superboy ep. Superboy was weakened by a red sun but Krypto was not. Then when Krypto carried a lead shield over Superboy, there came his powers back! Out of line with the comics, and too easy a resolution, just like the Superman stories.



    The only notable thing about this one is that Bob Hastings, Superboy's voice, would voice Commissioner Gordon on BTAS some 25 years later.moreless
