Narrator: Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. The infant of Krypton is now the Man of Steel: Superman! To best be in a position to use his amazing powers in a never-ending battle for truth and justice, Superman has assumed the disguise of Clark Kent, mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper.

Factual error: As the beginning shows Krypton explode, there is a huge cloud of dust at the remains of the planet that then fades to nothing. Only space dust would not act like that from an entire planet exploding. It acted like dust settling on the ground and just fading away, rather than dissipating into space. (00:01:25)Quantom X
Trivia: This series is where Superman first "learned" how to fly. Before this series, in the comics and radio, he was only able to jump very high and far, hence "leap tall buildings in a single bound". They decided that it just didn't look right on film and they decided to have him fly, but it's still depicted as if he has to get a jumping start.Quantom X
