The Adventures of Superman

The Atom Man Part 05
The Atom Man Part 06
The Atom Man Part 07
The Atom Man Part 08

The stranger from another planet continues his struggle to stop Der Teufel and his evil scheme to create an atomic monster.

By some strange coincidence this storyline involving the dangers of radiation coincides with the all too real nuclear crisis in Japan, but whether it's synchronicity or mere happenstance is too deep a mystery for me to unravel. All I know is that what started as frivolous reminiscence of the first superhero has, for me at least, taken on overtones of the uncanny.
