Jor-El makes the ultimate sacrifice and sends his only son to planet Earth in an attempt to save him from the destruction of Krypton. Adopted by the Kents and welcomed by the compassion of the people of Earth, the world is introduced to their first experience of the flying Man of Steel.

Three villains, each with the power of Superman and determined to inflict as much violence upon mankind, arrive on Earth. Superman flies around the planet in an attempt to stop their evil plot, but his relationship with Lois Lane begins to affect his powers. He has a hard choice to make…

After searching space for any remains of Krypton, Superman returns to Earth, only to discover Lois Lane has moved on and he has a new enemy to defeat. The wretched Lex Luther has stolen some kryptonite and plans on using it to wipe out humanity to start a new superior world.

The classic story is reborn and retold for the modern age. The story of Superman’s origin is once again illustrated in true cinematic form; he finds himself up against General Zod in an attempt to protect humanity from destruction.
