In mortal enemies, the Man of Steel has no match. Even faced with a trio of sinister super-powered villains from his home planet, Superman saved the day. But can super-strength stand up to the diabolical circuitry of a criminally insane computer? Enter Gus Gorman, a genial half-wit who just happens to be a natural-born genius at computer programming. In his hands, a computer keyboard turns into a deadly weapon . . . and soon, Superman faces the microelectronic menace of his career. Clark Kent meets his old flame Lana Lang at a Smallville High School reunion and Superman turns into his own worst enemy after exposure to a chunk of red kryptonite.
If the world's most powerful computer can control even Superman...no one on earth is safe.

Annette O'Toole who plays Lana Lang, plays Martha Kent in WB's TV series "Smallville" (2001).
The video game "played" by Ross Webster was created for the film and originally looked very life-like, so much so that the creators were asked to make it look more computer-like, so that the fact that it was actually a game would be more obvious to the audience.
The program Gus creates in the beginning that supposedly impossible is just a series of PRINT statements when Gus lists it.
Margot Kidder had less than five minutes of screen time in this film, with only twelve lines in total, after she expressed her disgust to the producers over the firing of Richard Donner from Superman II (1980).
