|Hilary J. Bader must of had the story of "The Czar and the Angel" in
her mind when she wrote this story, as it follows it pretty well. The
Warrior Queen Maxima had servants wait on her hand and foot, and the
people under her rule grew tired of her un-just ways of--well, ruling.
The episode itself follows the story of the Czar very well, as in the
end Maxima learns (From a little help from Superman) how to rule like
the Czar had done.
The episode itself was really enjoyable, along with the surprise
appearance of Lobo at the end--that was totally unexpected. Also worthy
of being noted was the giant snake-like thing in the tunnels and it's
demise, Maxima's appearance on the news station and her yelling for
Superman, and Maxima's re-taking of her throne.
Overall a very good episode, with alot of humor and action.
