Overview

All four feature-length adventures of the "man of steel" are included in this set. Superman: The Movie introduces the young Superman/Clark Kent (Christopher Reeve), revealing his short life on the planet Krypton, his upbringing in the rural Midwest, and his start as a fledgling reporter at the Daily Planet, where he forms a crush on top reporter Lois Lane (Margot Kidder). Superman II continues the superhero's struggles with his arch villain Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) and introduces three cosmic criminals from his home planet. Meanwhile, Superman's deepening relationship with Lois results in a difficult choice. Superman III takes a comical turn, with legendary comedian Richard Pryor starring as a computer-expert villain who causes the caped crusader to split into two Supermans -- one evil and one good. Nuclear disarmament is the subject of Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. Seeking revenge after his release from prison, Lex Luthor creates Nuclear Man 2 whose powers threaten Superman in a battle to the death.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Chas Turner
Preserving truth, justice, and the American way is no picnic, but the Man of Steel flies through his work all the same. This collection is stronger than a locomotive, complete with all four high-flying Superman movies starring Christopher Reeve. Featuring restored scenes and a crisp, new transfer, the 1978 original Superman introduces Krypton's favorite son to Earth, establishes his secret identity as Clark Kent, hooks him up with loyal Lois Lane (Margot Kidder), and pits him against fan-favorite villain Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman). Superman II continues the saga, as Superman again finds himself battling Luthor, plus some alien supercriminals to boot. The comedic crowd-pleaser Superman III pairs our hero with Richard Pryor -- for better or for worse. Rounding up the adventure is Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, in which Luthor returns with a vengeance (and Jon Cryer at his side!), forcing Superman to address nuclear disarmament.
