The New Adventures Of Superman / Lois & Clark
This one is sometimes written off as the “yuppie” Superman, and certainly Dean Cain’s Clark Kent threads and Teri Hatcher’s Lois Lane would seem to bear that out. But there’s little wrong with the actual Superman suit. The blue base is a slightly darker colour than we’ve seen before, and thankfully the pants are still shrinking – not in a pervy way, but we’re now down from “granny” to “high-leg”, which is frankly more suitable for action anyway. No one wants to worry about high waistbands in the middle of a fight to the death, and this show’s relatively high budget means that there was a fair bit of running about. We’re not sure that we approve of the slicked-back hair, but we can probably forgive Cain the slightly cocky grin he habitually sported in the role. After all, if you were Superman, you’d probably be a tiny bit cocky too.
