This is the first ''Comicbook/{{Superman}}'' video game, released by Creator/{{Atari}} in 1978/1979 for the [[UsefulNotes/{{Atari 2600}} 2600]].

You start out as Clark Kent, in a phone booth. Head east one screen, and LexLuthor and his five henchmen will [[BrokenBridge blow up a bridge]] and flee. Head back to the phone booth and change into Superman. You have two missions: [[GottaCatchEmAll Reassemble the bridge, and capture Lex and his men]]. Metropolis is represented as a 21 screen overworld, with a [[HubLevel subway]], a jail, the Daily Planet, and the phone booth. You fly around looking for Lex, his men, and three pieces of the bridge. If you spot a villain, pick him up and carry him to jail. If you spot a bridge piece, pick it up and carry it back to the river. Once you have put all six villains in jail, and reassembled the bridge, change back into Clark Kent, and head to the Daily Planet to file your story.

There are "Kryptonite satellites" wandering around the city. If one touches you, you lose the ability to fly and carry villains and bridge pieces. Depending on the right difficulty switch, Comicbook/LoisLane will appear to heal you, or you will have to walk around the city until you find her. Touch her to regain your powers. There is also a helicopter flying around, picking up Lois and bridge pieces and scattering them around.

* BrokenBridge: Literally. But at least the FetchQuest is logical: The bridge pieces.
* DungeonBypass: Some (early) versions of the game had a bug allowing you to skip collecting bridge pieces. The game starts as soon as you touch the joystick. Use you x-ray vision (hold down the button), for a few seconds and you could fly off without becoming Clark Kent and watching the bridge blow. Since the only score was your time to complete, you could cut vital seconds off your time (just about a minute was possible).
