  • A new prototype suit is given to a cop who unfortunately is corrupted and affected by the suit's power and a design flaw in the suit.

    This is a pretty typical episode in that Lex has his hands in something else that he really should be leaving alone and it comes back and nearly bites him in the @$$. Instead our resident "Man of Steel" is drudged into the fray and actually is getting his arse handed to him. This actually saves the episode from being filler. That and the fact that Supes get a little annoyed and jealous by the attention that Corey Mills, the cop in question, is getting. Even though he tries to play it off and deny it, it's very obvious that he likes playing the hero and probably couldnt stand the competition.



    Another nice touch is how John Henry Irons is introduced to the series, working for Luthor. Now that's something that i didnt see coming but it was welcome.



    There were some clever lines(as always with this series) and a cool fight between "prototype" and Superman, one befitting the show. All in all, a solid episode that didnt do enough to the considered great.moreless
