LOS ANGELES, May 6 — Superman has the power to leap tall buildings. But leaping onto a cellphone screen is proving a little trickier.
Warner Brothers recently created a six-episode series of short videos
for mobile devices based on the popular Superman television show,
“Smallville.” The episodes tracked the history of Oliver Queen, the
“Smallville” billionaire mayor who, like Clark Kent, has a superhero
alter ego, the Green Arrow.
