Superman Triple Feature
Release Date: October 1st, 2013

Descriptions: First, timeless characters and innovative storytelling unite to create a powerhouse collection of episodes as Superman faces off with four formidable foes to defend his adopted home. Then, embittered by Superman’s heroic successes and soaring popularity, Lex Luthor forms an alliance with the powerful computer/villain Brainiac. Lastly, Survivor of distant, destroyed Planet Krypton, young Clark Kent grows to manhood on Earth, aware of superpowers he vows to use for the benefit of his adopted planet.

Superman Double Feature
Release Date: October 1st, 2013

Descriptions: First, the Man of Steel rescues an ill-fated mission to the Sun (sabotaged by Lex Luthor) and, in the process, is oversaturated by radiation – which accelerates his cell degeneration. Sensing even he will be unable to cheat death, Superman ventures into new realms – finally revealing his secret to Lois, confronting Lex Luthor’s perspective of humanity, and attempting to ensure Earth’s safety before his own impending end with one final, selfless act. Then, when the intergalactic serial killer Doomsday is unearthed, Superman meets the creature head on in the battle to end all battles. Going punch for punch, Superman finally ends the threat of Doomsday as he throws one last punch and collapses forever – making the ultimate sacrifice to save Metropolis and all those he once loved.
