- What did Adventures of Superman use from the comics and what was later added from the series?
- Why No Traditional Villains in Adventures of Superman?

After researching the Adventures of Superman series questions for several hours everyday for five days I finally stumbled upon a book called Flights of Fantasy: The Unauthorized but True Story of Radio & TV’s Adventures of Superman, which I decided to buy on the hope of finding the answers to the two questions.
