Andrea and I have the first Season of the Adventures of Superman at home and I watched this one last weekend and I knew it was an episode of the week.
The plot is one of the creepier stories you’ll see. A sculptrist claims to hear voices that tell her to make wax figures of people and that within six months, they’re dead. The mystery is fairly intriguing, and the villain, while lacking the punch of Superman’s latter day rivals is one of the more distinct villains in the 1950s TV series, which was populated by generic “Thugs of the Week.”
This is a fun story with a satisfactory conclusion. I trust you’ll enjoy “Mystery in Wax”

Superman battling a comet? Does it get any better than this? Of course not. Beats all the gangsters Superman takes on in the 1940s radio show and 1950s TV show. This is one time when there’s no doubt. “This is a job for Superman”
Superman v. the Flash in a race around the World. Does it get any better than that? How about throwing in the Weather Wizard for good measure.
This Superman episode is the first of many on Superman: The Animated Series to feature guest stars. Among the heroes to grace Superman were the Spirit, the Green Lantern, Aquaman, and of course Batman.

There is nothing quite like Superman in Animation. The classic Max Fleischer cartoons feature the same voice actors as from The Adventures of Superman radio show, but the movie far exceeds the radio show in excitement.
In animation, Superman can be bigger than life and if drawn well, we can buy it. Radio, it can be hard to imagine the man of Steel’s powers especially if you’ve never seen them before. And with live action, you have to avoid the corny look which nearly every live action incarnation of Superman seems to fall into. The animation here is action packed and incredibly fun.
