Although very often overlooked, the character actor is nevertheless an indispensable part of any television show, and the Adventures of Superman was blessed with some of the very best. For nearly fifty years now, we've watched them again and again as they cause trouble for, or aid Superman in his battle for decency and fair play.

One question frequently asked is "Whatever happened to . . .?" Sadly, with the passing of time, many of them have passed on. This list, originally compiled by Mauricio Araujo of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, was first published in The Adventures Continue #7 (Spring 1992). Since then I've attempted to update it and add lines of dialogue to better identify each name. I owe many thanks to Tom Chenevert and Harvey Gilmore for their great help in researching data and dialogue for this page.

Now, to paraphrase Madame Selena . . . it has become my unhappy duty to reveal to you, representatives of the press and industry, the arts and sciences, those who, within the past fifty years, have passed away. And borrowing from another episode, I call these pages . . .
