BackgroundFollowing a mysterious absence of several years, the Man of Steel comes back to earth in the epic action adventure Superman Returns, a soaring new chapter in the saga of one of the world's most beloved super heroes. While an old enemy ploys to render him powerless once & for all, Superman faces the heartbreaking realization that the woman he loves Lois Lane, has moved on with her life. Or has she? Superman's bitter-sweet return challenges him to bridge the distance between them while finding a place in a society that has learned to survive without him. In an attempt to protect the world he loves from cataclysmic destruction, Superman embarks on an epic journey of redemption that takes him from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space.
GameplayAs the Man of Steel, you'll hone your unworldly super powers such as Flight, X-Ray Vision, Heat Vision, Super Hearing, Super Strength, Super Speed, and Super Breath to fight villains that only SupermanTM can defeat. Explore your super powers to discover new uses and combinations: use Heat Vision to melt a rogue car or as a focused laser-like beam to cut through thick metal; use Super Breath to move heavy objects or freeze villains into solid ice. You can also combine powers and interact with your environment; for instance, freeze water spouting from a broken fire hydrant into a giant icicle with your Super Breath and use your Super Strength to hurl it at an enemy.
