Screen Grabs


This episode shows how evil Darkseid really is. After watching this you just fell so mad at him. It was a great idea to have Darkseid kidnap Superman and brain wash him in thinking that Darkseid and Granny found him not Martha and Jon Kent. Do you remember the scene when Martha and Jon find the rocket ship that Kal-El is in from The Last Son of Krypton? When Granny Goodness brainwashes Superman this is what we see. Except Granny and Darkseid are in Martha and Jon's place. It is really freaky to watch and down right sick.

Even though this was a very dark episode it had it's share of funny moments. The whole Supergirl thing with the Clark Kent and Superman robots was amusing. You really have to fell bad for her. It also makes you wonder if Superman had those robots prepared in advance just in case he ever disappeared or had to go on a very long trip. And if that is the case who made them? When one of the "Superman" robots goes out of control (thanks to Lex Luthor) we see the inside of a building. Then we see a rich woman showing off a new painting of Superman that she just got. As she is doing this the Superman robot flies right threw it!

When Superman along with a ton of Parademons attack earth Supergirl asks Clark what he is doing. Superman starts to fight Supergirl. In fact he almost kills her. Then Lois tries to talk to Superman. When Superman sees her he regains his memory. Right as this happens Lex Luthor and General Hardcastle are preparing to fire a kryptonite missile at Superman. Superman sees it and pushes Lois out of the way.
