This is a World War II propaganda film made in 1942. Superman takes part in the war effort to destroy parts of Japan. Clark and Lois are imprisoned reporters and Superman gets the Japanese ruffled up. He knocks their ships into the ocean. He takes down the ships so easily; a whole American ship could do the same. It shows that Americans need to take an active participation in the war. (video) “Superman: Eleventh Hour.” (accessed November 18, 2012).
