Superman (1941) s1e6: The Magnetic Telescope

Rating: 10/10

A scientist is demonstrating his new invention that allows for magnetically attracting celestial objects towards Earth. When he goes too far with a nearby comet, can Superman stop it before it destroys the Earth?

I like how they use the scientist but he’s not a villain this time, just unable to stop his experiment. It’s a neat way to flip the script without overdoing the same mad-scientist-as-a-villain plotline. I also like how they use Lois as a heroine here as she’s almost more important than Superman at stopping the meteorite. Does that spoil something? Well these are only 10 minutes long, there’s not much to talk about…

+10: A very entertaining short that takes what we’ve seen previously and gives us something original
