Cartoon impresario Max Fleischer was the among the first to bring the printed Superman comics to a wide audience in these fanciful 1940s shorts featuring the Man of Steel saving his true love, Lois Lane, battling mad scientists and overthrowing Nazis. Many of the slogans and attributes we ascribe to Superman today originated in this series, including the famous “Faster Than A Speeding Bullet” introduction. Bud Collyer performs the voice of Clark Kent/Superman, with Joan Alexander as Lois Lane.
