Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Electric Earthquake

Original Airdate: May 15, 1942

Superman was called in to stop an underwater earthquake machine from leveling Manhattan (as if lasers, a comet, and robot attackers weren't enough).

Best Part: Underwater Superman looked great and was a nice change of scenery. Say what you want about these episodes being a little dated. The animation was fantastic, especially underwater. Supes cape's fluid movements showcased the animator's talents.

Worst Part: The evil Native American (but still a scientist) trying to reclaim Manhattan for “his people” was a tad on the uncomfortable racial stereotyping side.

Episode Count: 0007
Series Count: (7 of 17)

  1. Tesla experimented with created earthquakes by feeding huge electrical surges into the ground. I wonder if this was inspired by headlines about his theories and efforts?
