The Adventures of Superman was a television series starring George Reeves in 1952. I don’t remember seeing Superman fighting against a lot of foes as strong as he was. I saw some of the episodes from the series in the 1970’s. The television series was still great to watch though Superman didn’t have foes with his strength.
There is one episode from the season 6 DVD that I thought would be a great remake for the big screen. The episode is titled, “The Last Knight”. It is the TV episode from 1958 and in color. In this episode, Superman was flying wearing armor. He was dressed as a knight. Clark Kent did not appear to be worried about the secret society knights. They were the bad guys who were four rich men dressed as knights. I’m sure Clark Kent as Superman would have been worried to know that Lois Lane was captured by them in a remake. He would rescue her in a hurry. The story would probably be altogether different and maybe more fascinating. The story would be more exciting.
In the TV series, Lois Lane, Jimmy, and some of the knights were locked up in a dungeon with Superman dressed in his armor disguise. They were locked up by one knight that was a killer. And of course you know Superman won the battle.
Superman looked great in the 1950’s as a flying knight. If Superman looked great in the 1950’s as a flying knight, I’m sure the new Superman would too.
