    • TRIVIA (1)

      • During Superman and Livewire's last fight, after she screams "I'm Livewire!" Superman's gloves disappear and reappear from shot to shot.

    • QUOTES (7)

    • NOTES (3)

      • According to Evan Dorkins, this episode's writer and Livewire co-creator, Leslie Willis's take on Superman was originally suppose to have more backing it up. One of the earlier proposals for the animated series featured more public fear and mistrust of the alien Superman. That effect is lost here, in a series where Superman is generally well-liked and even beloved by the people.

      • Lex Luthor appears, but has no lines.

      • The villainess Livewire was created purposely for this show. The character was later transferred into the DC Comics continuity, much like Harley Quinn from Batman: The Animated Series.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Livewire: If I can make it here, I can make it anywhere!
        This is a paraphrase of one verse of Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York."
