Superman Battles The Klan (Clan)

On June 10, 1946, a 16 part radio Superman episode debuted. Superman’s radio creator’s and writers decided that after the war, the Man of Steel needed some new enemies. The rising of the Klan gave them what they wanted.

I couldn’t figure out how to get the radio link to play, but thankfully someone uploaded it on Youtube. Enjoy!
