Super Action Matinee: The Golden Age

Welcome, one and all, to our Super Action Matinee Saturday line up! Just like last Sunday (Consisting of Flash Gordon, The Phantom and Mandrake the Magician) we'll show you three instalments of an old Saturday morning matinee serial, but on Saturdays you'll be getting the first celluloid appearances from the Dark Knight, the Man of Steel and the wielder of the Power of Shazam! Stay tuned every week as we take you to a bygone era, where World War II was a current and very real event, but these individuals fight for truth, justice and the American way! (I will warn you: the Batman story in particular was very much a product of it's time, and the racist overtones are ever present throughout. These chapters are the uncut versions as I felt it was necessary to show it as nature intended, even though I don't agree with it)

First off, Batman & Robin, agents for "ol' Uncle Sam" fight the "Evil Japanese Scientist" Dr. Daka in "The Electronical Brain"

Then, witness the origin of the Last Son of Krypton in "Superman Comes to Earth!"

Then, finally, watch as Billy Batson gains the power of the gods in "The Adventures of Captain Marvel"

How will our heroes get out of their predicaments? Stay tunes next week to find out! Also, tune in tomorrow for the latest instalments in the adventures of Flash Gordon, Phantom and Mandrake!
