Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Threat of the Thrutans

Original Airdate: September 24, 1966

Some aliens rode their way across the cosmos on Sputnik, but then got trapped and needed a NASA Gemini rocket to get them home. They were pretty mean about the whole thing, dropping shock bombs and all, so Superman came to save the day.

Best Part: You gotta give the Man of Steel some credit here. The aliens were real jerks, but Superman didn't hold a grudge; he just gave their space ship a gentle push out of Earth's gravity and even wished them a bon voyage. No hard feelings.

Worst Part: I am aware these segments are full of cheese, but the acknowledgement that "he is really a super man." was an eye roller.

Episode Count: 0022
Series Count: (5 of 60)
