Episode Summary

There's more than one invisible man in Metropolis. One who is a modern day Robin Hood, another who is committing crimes all over Metropolis, and one who's as close as the Daily Planet- who feels invisible to Lois Lane, who seems infatuated with his alter ego.

  • Attack of the floating gun, shock, shock horror!!!!

    Most probably the worst early episode of Lois and Clark. I'm looking through you contains a complicated and ridiculous storyline. Limited horror (unless floating guns scare you) and trashy special effects

    An incredibly dull and ineffective episode. Avoid!

    A 2/10 episode awful awful awful awful the only tiny thing I like was Lois was in it Teri Hatcher is awesome

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • Goof: When the invisible robbers are exiting "Fort Metropolis", they and their weapons are invisible (since all you can see is the "muzzle fire". This should be impossible since they are wearing invisible suits over their bodies, not the weapons themselves.

    • Goof: The evil Invisible Man said that the vault he was putting Lois and the others in only had two minutes worth of oxygen left. A vault as large as the one in the gold depository would have held much more than just two minutes' worth of oxygen, especially since the door had been standing open with the air circulating for several minutes at least.

    • Phosphorus itself is not a phosphor; it is highly reactive and gives off a faint luminescent glow when mixing with oxygen. The glow is actually caused by the very slow burning of the phosphorus, but without a flame or any heat measurable amount of heat.

    • The Superman toys at the Kent's are playing the Lois and Clark theme.

    • The opening teaser for this episode features cameos by several DC Comics writers who, at the time, were working on the "Death of Superman" story arc.

    • Nitpick: In the company name Jackson Phosphorous, both on the sign and the bag of phosphorus powder, the word "phosphorus" is spelled incorrectly. As a side note, it might be that the company's name Jackson comes from Jackson Beck, who did the voice-over of the phrase "It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Superman!" to introduce the Superman radio show.
