Despite high ratings, the series was canceled in its fourth season due to WarnerBros, who filed a lien in an effort to reclaim all ''Superman'' film and TV rights (Though ''Superboy'' was already a property of Time Warner, its distribution was handled by Viacom). Because of the number of different companies involved in its production, the show never ran again in syndication and only in the last few years has seen limited release on DVD.

Added DiffLines:

*FromNobodyToNightmare: Lex Luthor, full stop. He starts the series off as a rich, brilliant, if insufferably arrogant college student who rigs basketball games for profit. Then he goes bald, and suddenly he's poisoning his only friend, surgically changing his face, and building massive death machines to destroy the world.
