|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.
