Two of Superman's biggest rivals, Brainiac 13 and Lex Luthor, have plans for world domination. It's nothing new for the caped hero, but he must use all of his strength to stop both villains from taking over the world.
Based on the comic books stories (and not the movies and animated cartoon series of recent years), you take control of Superman from a 3rd person perspective. You have full control of his many powers, from flying around at the speed of light to using freeze breath, x-ray and heat vision. Time is a factor, so you must complete each task quickly, whether it be fighting off goons to chasing down a crim.
