Serial Killers....Sort Of
15 February 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Once again, a group of crooks walks around with lead masks (can't be seen by Superman). They kidnap the whole Planet crew and put them in cliffhanger situations (one literally) like the old Saturday afternoon serials. White is put on a log, heading for a buzz saw. Lois is tied to a railroad track. Clark hovers over a vat of boiling acid. And Jimmy's car is tampered with and he is literally hanging over a cliff after jumping out at high speed. I always wondered why Superman wouldn't just melt the lead helmets with x- ray vision; or, perhaps just pull them apart without hurting the people. Just start eliminating as many as possible and throw a monkey wrench into the plot. That would be way too easy, I guess. This was a fun, creative episode, and well worth watching. It was the next to last episode of "The Adventures of Superman."
