My Adventures With Superman Clip Gives Clark a Sailor Moon-Esque Transformation

A new official clip from My Adventures With Superman highlights Clark Kent’s transformation into the Man of Steel.

Adult Swim shared the clip in question mere hours ahead of the show’s premiere tonight at midnight. In it, mild-mannered Clark Kent changes into his Superman outfit in a scene highly evocative of the iconic transformation sequences featured in Sailor Moon. This homage is hardly surprising, given the fact that My Adventures With Superman is a show that wears its anime influence on its big blue sleeve. The clip concludes with Ma Kent making some last-minute adjustments to her son’s superhero garb.
