Synopsis

In the year 2965, Klar Ken T5477 takes over the role of Superman from his father, a role passed from father to son since the original Superman 1,000 years before. Like his ancestor, Klar works in the news business, but unlike his ancestor he is immune to the effects of kryptonite, and paralyzed by seawater, which has been irradiated by a past atomic war. Assigned to track down the story on Muto, last seen on Neptune, Klar says good-bye to his co-worker and girlfriend Lyra 3916, who likes Klar, but dislikes Superman.
