This DVD set includes the first 18 episodes of the series I believe. Starting it off is the 3-part "Last Son of Krypton," which retells the origin of Superman and does a good job establishing the series. Other favorites of mine that are on this DVD set are "Stolen Memories," " The Main Man, Parts 1 & 2," "My Girl," "Blasts from the Past, Parts 1 & 2," and "Speed Demons." This set does include all the episodes on the single disc release "Superman: A Little Piece of Home." If you're a fan of the series I recommend this set over the single discs. If you're a parent looking to simply amuse your children, the single discs may be an option to consider, but even so this set can be bought for less than $25 and has 18 episodes to boot. The only drawback in this set that I can think of is that the second disc is a flipper, where one side contains 6 episodes and then the other side contains the last 6. It's a minor complaint, as I'm just all too happy to have this series as a box set, but it may be an issue to some.
I do have to give much kudos though for the Toyman! What an excellent and frightful interpretation of that character! Bravo! That face/mask alone would give any kid nightmares!
Again, I rate this beneath Batman because the writing and characters seem subpar. In the Batman universe you connect with his villians because each one has an emotional scar (much like Bats himself) that propels them to be who they are. Mr. Freeze and the love for his sick wife, Harley and her obsession with the Joker, Mad Hatter and his quest for love and Ivy and her inability to have children...all of these characters are so muli-dimensional that they make the Superman villians pale in comparison. Lex Luthor is a rich guy who wants power, Brainiac wants to collect information, LiveWire got shocked, Parasite got doused with toxic chemicals, etc. There is no human connection. The only one who remotely achieves this is Metallo.
In all, I cannot wait for volume two!
