LEX LUTHOR is pretty much relegated to comic relief in this one, although he does point the real villains, three Kryptonian criminals who have escaped from the Phantom Zone. Terrance Stamp( Haunted Mansion,Phantom Menace) plays Zodd the leader of the three with scene stealing zest. Christopher Reeves is still pure genius, and the effects hold up. The bus scene still baffles me. If you want to watch a comic book movie with a story. Check it out.
