  • After being set free from imprisonment in lava, Metallo returns with revenge in his 'heart.' Superman teams with Steel to deal with Metallo.

    This is my favorite Metallo episode. Metallo is freed from his prison of solid lava and has only one thing on his mind; to get revenge on Superman for leaving him buried under all that rock where, "I couldn't move, couldn't see, couldn't hear but I could think. And all I could think about was how I was going to make you pay!" And he does get the best of Superman with the help of his kryptonite heart. I liked this episode because of Metallo, played by the great actor Malcolm McDowell and John Henry Irons aka Steel, played by Michael Dorn who played Worf on Star Trek the Next Generation. Without Steel Superman may very well have met his maker. Great fight scenes between Metallo and Superman and Metallo and Steel. One of the best episodes.
