FILTER BY TYPE

  • Trivia

    • Clayface II is gray here rather than the pinkish hue he had in his debut episode.

    • The jet pack Robin gets in this episode was first seen on the Robin action figure released by Mattel Toys early 2007.

    • Dana Delany and Clancy Brown reprise their roles from the 90's Superman: The Animated Series, while George Newbern reprises his from Justice League.

  • Quotes

    • (After Superman runs into Robin while he's flying on his jetpack)
      Robin: I've got an idea for the next prototype: barf bags!

    • Metallo: Lookin' a little green, Supes. Me, I love Kryptonite; Can't get enough. But I guess one man's power source is another man's poison.

    • Jimmy Olsen: (about Superman: Wait'll they see him, Ms. Lane. The roof's gonna come off the building.
      Dick: Fan boy.
      Jimmy Olsen: What are you, un-American? He's Superman!
      Dick: Well, we have our own hero.
      Jimmy Olsen: The Bat? He's okay, if you like the circus.

    • Batman: (referring to Superman) He's not much for conversation, is he?
      Robin: Like you should talk.

  • Notes

    • Barbara Gordon/Batgirl does not appear in this episode.

    • Wallace Langham does not reprise his role of Clayface (Basil Karlo). Instead, Lex Lang voices him here but makes his grunt sounds.

    • Bane, Black Mask (with Number One and his organization), Clayface (Basil Karlo), Mr. Freeze, and Poison Ivy return; however, only Black Mask and Clayface II speak, and Clayface II now has a different voice actor.

    • Superman, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Lex Luthor, Metallo, Mercy Graves, and Mayor Hamilton Hill are introduced.

  • Allusions

    • Lex Luthor: Bow to me.
      When Lex Luthor says this, it's reminiscent of General Zod's line to Superman in Superman II.

    • Batman: Hush

      When Lex Luthor uses Poison Ivy's spores on Superman he mentions that he laced the spores with Kryptonite. In the graphic novel Batman: Hush, Poison Ivy combines synthetic Kryptonite with her spores and uses them to control Superman.

    • Terminator 2
      Robin makes a reference to a famous Terminator 2 movie line/quote ("Hasta la vista, baby.") when driving away on his motorcycle with the green kryptonite from Metallo.
