The entire, typically well-written saga of how Clark Kent (Tom Welling) became a man - or, more accurately, a Superman - is traced in the full 10-season collection of the adventure series. After landing on Earth amid a meteor shower, the young arrival from the planet Krypton is taken in by Jonathan and Martha Kent (John Schneider, Annette O'Toole), then grows to have complicated relationships with both Lana Lang and Lex Luthor (Kristin Kreuk, Michael Rosenbaum).
Steadfast friend Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack) is almost always by Clark's side. In later seasons of the show, our hero meets headstrong reporter Lois Lane (Erica Durance). The series' final season also debuts separately on both DVD and Blu-ray. DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; "The Adventures of Superboy" and "Aquaman" pilots; Daily Planet facsimile; episode guide; "Secret Origin: The American Story of DC Comics" documentary; PaleyFest 2004 footage. *** (Not rated: AS, P, V)
