Get the Lead Out!
2 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A doctor convinces a group of mobsters that it is possible to change a person's fingerprints. Once one of the crooks "proves" this is possible, the doctor is willing to do this for all the guys, "for a price." For some reason, all these guys wear lead mask on their heads. I never figured out why (Lois explains it's because of Superman's inability to see through lead with his x-ray vision). If someone can change fingerprints, it would cause considerable problems for law enforcement. Henderson shows Clark something that makes him realize that something is amiss. This is a pretty decent episode, but why the lead head masks? There is a funny sight gag at the end dealing with Jimmy Olsen.
