The powers were super-strength, super-speed, heat vision, super-breath, super-hearing ... but not flight. Not until the end of the series. The villains were Lex Luthor, Lionel Luthor, Brainiac, Zod, Doomsday, Darkseid, random krypto-freaks of the week. The tone? Portrait of the superhero as a young man -- think "Dawson's Creek" meets DC Comics.
