Screen Grabs



A great intro to Superman's weakness, especially with the giant dinosaur--you just CAN'T go wrong with a gigantic dinosaur that comes to life in a museum to eat Superman and Lois Lane.

In all seriousness, this was a pretty good episode, with the hatred between Superman and Lex growing that much more. The revealing of Superman's weakness (trying to stop petty thefts in Lex's new museum, but stops short when he goes near the case of meteor rocks), and again, the dinosaur stuff was cool to see, especially after he ripped the head right off it and then it pans over to Lex who throws an object at his monitor, shattering it into little bits.

Animation in this episode was on-par with what I've seen so far, and it was just a real satisfying way to reveal the kryptonite and Lex's never-ending quest to be rid of the Big Blue Man.
