Jerome and Brian fly back around the earth 40 years (but thankfully choose not to change history) to discuss the first modern superhero film, Superman. They discuss how some familiar patterns and tropes of the superhero genre start right from the first scene. They discuss how the producers established credibility with a notable screenwriter and one of the most iconic actors in film history. Christopher Reeve is assessed as the first (and perhaps) version of the character. This is not a bird or plane, but could this film be considered strong enough for the Superhero Pantheon?
