|“||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.||„|
|~ The intro to the first seven shorts|
This Superman is the one featured in the seventeen shorts created by Fleischer Studios. The shorts are remembered for their extremely high-quality animation for the time and reasonably accurate adaptation of Golden Age Superman stories (and adding much to the comics' mythos which would become fundamental parts of the character and his world, such as his ability to fly), and served as both an introduction to the character for the general public and a major inspiration for the DC Animated Universe. They have since entered the public domain.
