Before Superman was a 1950s television series and some late 1970s to early 1980s motion pictures, it was a theatrical serial. Both the 1948 and 1950 serials had 15 episodes. The 1948 serial introduced us to Superman. He was born on the planet Krypton, and his parents sent him to Earth just before Krypton was about to explode. He was adopted by the Kents and named Clark. From there, people learned of Clark's amazing abilities. By 1950, Superman was battling Atom Man. Atom Man developed a machine that could reduce people to basic atoms, transferring particles wherever Atom Man chose.
