Building on the Superman myth, this television series from the 1990s centers on the young
adult life of Clark Kent (Dean Cain) in the modern-day city of Metropolis. While struggling
to balance his Superman duties with his job working for the Daily Planet, Kent meets and
falls in love with fellow reporter Lois Lane. When news breaks of Superman's existence,
however, Lane becomes smitten with the elusive superhero and unaware that Kent and Superman
are the same person, wards off Kent's romantic advances. Driven by this odd romantic
triangle of sorts, the show's first season also focuses on life around the Daily Planet office,
and Superman's battles with a whole host of villains, making it part-romance, part-action/adventure.
