Collection of animations following the adventures of the DC Comics hero. 'Superman: The Last Son of Krypton', the three-part episode from 'Superman: The Animated Series', recounts the early years of Superman (voice of Tim Daly) from his forced exile from the dying planet Krypton, through his growing up as a human boy, to his work at the Daily Planet as mild-mannered Clark Kent.
No-one knows that the shy reporter is the superhero who has to stop terrorists blowing up Metropolis and keep Lex Luthor (Clancy Brown) in check. 'Superman: A Little Piece of Home' contains another four episodes from the series.
In the title episode, Superman foils a gem heist at a new museum funded by Metropolis' mastermind criminal Lex Luthor, but mysteriously falls ill when he comes near one of their rare green gems.
Luthor figures out that this rare rock is really a meteorite from Superman's home planet Krypton.
But Lois Lane (Dana Delany) proves that it doesn't take superpowers to ruin Luthor's plans.
In 'Speed Demons', Superman and super-cocky Flash (Charlie Schlatter) decide to race one-on-one to settle who's the fastest man on the planet, but the contest is interrupted when a mysterious villain called Weather Wizard (Miguel Ferrer) threatens to destroy Metropolis unless his demands are met.
In 'The Late Mr Kent', Clark Kent digs into a murder case a little too deep and is presumed dead.
In 'Where There's Smoke', Superman takes on Volcana (Peri Gilpin), a woman with fiery powers.
Finally, in the full-length feature 'All-Star Superman' (2011), as a result of his arch nemesis Lex Luther (Anthony LaPaglia)'s scheming, Superman (James Denton) is overexposed to radiation and is slowly dying.
Before he leaves the world forever, Superman must save it one last time from Luther's evil ways.
