Audience Reviews for Superman
The title should read The Magnetic Telescope. The bald headed mad scientist is not really so mad. Meddling cops break the new magnetic telescope after a meteor starts on a crash course with Earth. The scientist could have controlled the falling metallic rock by pulling it close enough to observe, but pushing it back to avoid collision. Lois is a bit foolish in this one and Superman must save her. But can he save the planet from this threat? The scientist gets a bum rap, since it is his invention that ultimately saves the day. There is a nice joke set in silhouette with Lois confusing Clark for Superman at the end.
Similar to the first Superman short, as its main villain is a mad scientist with a big machine that does mad things for no particular reason. The mad scientist is bald, so I sort of draw comparison to Lex Luthor, but I don't really think that was ever the intention. It is a standard Superman short, but under Fleischer, being standard was being pretty solid. It is good classic fun, with adventure and action and quality animation.
