Ruby Spears – 1988
As a 50th anniversary gift, DC Comics' legendary Man of Steel got a brand-new Saturday
morning cartoon. Produced by Ruby-Spears, this new Superman series brought back a few
familiar foes, along with new unfriendly faces, for weekly battles and a peek into the private life of
the man with the "S" on his chest.
Born as Kal-El on the doomed planet Krypton, Superman was sent by his father, Jor-El, to the
stars in a rocket ship bound for Earth. The crash-landed craft was found by Ma and Pa Kent,
residents of Smallville, USA, who took the boy in and raised him as little Clark Kent. Young Clark
soon realized he wasn’t like other boys--the ones who didn't have super strength, heat vision,
freezing breath, nigh-invulnerability, X-ray vision, and the ability to fly--but the soon-to-be
Superman tried to keep his powers hidden in order to fit in. As an adult, the mild-mannered,
glasses-wearing Clark moved to the big city of Metropolis and got a job as a reporter at the
newspaper Daily Planet. There, he could stay aware of breaking news and rush to the rescue if
necessary. He worked alongside sassy reporter Lois Lane, for whom he carried a torch, as well
as the eager photographer Jimmy Olsen and tough editor Perry White.
But when evil reared its ugly head, the glasses came off, the shirt was ripped open, and the red
cape came out, usually in the confines of a telephone booth. Ruby-Spears' Superman followed
the super-heroic action formula of earlier Superman adventures, throwing the Man of Steel into
combat against Lex Luthor (now a billionaire industrialist), and other new villains like The
Defendroids and Cybron also showed up to menace Metropolis. In one episode, Superman
teams up with fellow Justice League of America member Wonder Woman.
The final four minutes of each Superman episode were devoted to a brief snapshot from the
"Superman Family Album." These biographical segments showed what it was like to grow up as
the most powerful boy in Smallville. Unfortunately, super powers only made awkward childhood
and adolescent situations even more awkward, as young Clark was forced to deal with his first
day at school, an overnight scouting campout, getting a driver's license, his first date, and more.
