Synopsis

The appearance of a stagecoach on the streets of Metropolis heralds the arrival of Terra-Man, a character seemingly from a spaghetti western, yet with super-scientific weapons. Superman must contain Terra-Man while dealing with a kryptonian condition known as birth-spells which effects the metabolism of Kryptonians every six years on their Kryptonian birthdays.
