  • The season finale of the first season! What a shock!

    As the episode begins it seems that the leggionaires don't have much hope for their success. And so they set out to break the Fatal Five out of jail. With the aid of the Fatal Five they go about creating a weapon that should destroy the sun-eater. All the Legionaires and the Fatal Five go about getting the parts for the device, exept for Superman, who Brainiac and Bouncing Boy have sent to find the Controller.

    Superman finds the Controller who believes that perfection lies in chaos rather than order like the rest of the Controllers.

    Meanwhile, the Legion and the Fatal Five go against the sun-eater. They manage to break through the sun-eaters shield but the device fails. The Fatal Five reel but the Legion already had plans to stop them.

    With the device failed, the Legion believes they can't stop it.

    The Controller laughs as he beats Superman.

    They realize that the device was missing a conductor. Ferro Lad sneaks away from the rest of the Legion before they can stop him and heads to the de ice where he acts as the conductor, saying "Long live the Legion" as he dies.

    In his rage Superman takes down the Controller, who flees, but not before Superman warns him "ever step foot here again, and I'll finish what we started."

    At Ferro Lads funeral Superman gives a speech, but we see the body (possibly living) crashed into an asteroid.

    Superman is leaving in a time bubble and says "Metroplolis of bust." He arrives right before he left.

    I thought this was a very good episode. It's not often that you see a group of Super Heroes lose hope. It showed that there really was a threat to deal with.

    It was nice to see Superman go back to Smallville, hopefully he'll be back for the next season though, just older and more mature with his power.
