Series Info

The Man of Steel battles `for truth, justice and the American way,' while his alter ego, Clark Kent, works as a reporter for the Daily Planet in this classic series. It premiered in syndication in 1952 after the superhero had already been popularized in comic books, radio and the movies. The series ran until 1957, but the iconic character continued to find work in film, TV (most notably, `Lois & Clark' and `Smallville') and even a campy Broadway musical.
