Navigating your 20s can be challenging – especially when you are a superhero! The latest trailer for My Adventures with Superman shows a young Kal-El just starting in the city of Metropolis. He is not yet the bold and confident Man of Steel we have come to love, but a slightly dorky young adult grappling with some of life’s most challenging questions while trying not to break everything he touches. With all his attempts to be a “normal man having a normal day” simply not panning out, the superhero learns to listen to his instinct and use his powers to help those in trouble.
Being a 20-something-year-old, Clark obviously needs a job (how else will he pay for everything he has been breaking). Que in the Daily Planet. As he works alongside Lois Lane and fellow intern Jimmy Olsen to uncover the hidden identity of the city’s mystery vigilante, the up-and-coming reporter is stuck between keeping his alter ego safe and finding the story of the century! The trio share adventures, take down bad guys, stumble over secrets, and discover what it means to be heroes in their own right.
The teaser for the series shows off the beloved superhero and his crew in a charming anime-inspired character design and animation. While the upcoming show may bring a fresh take on themes and characters, it is a return to the lighthearted, wholesome superhero legacy of one of the most iconic superheroes of all time.
Packed with action, comedy, and the promise of a budding romance, this coming-of-age story seems like a must-watch! DC may have another hit tv show on its hands.
