May 1940: Superman Radio Serial #34-45
These episodes encompass two storylines. The first is about a bad guy who is causing plane crashes with a special machine. He works in a circus, which gives Superman good cause to fight a gorilla and a strongman. But at this point I can sense the serial starting to fall into a rut. It's the same kinds of stories and the same kinds of villains. The second story is a little better; it's about a Mexican crook who is trying to kill a senator that is cracking down on crime. This one has some quite well realised characters, which makes it a little more memorable. But it still suffers a bit from the same rut I talked about before.
