The Nine Lives of Lois Lane
29 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Think about how much Superman could do if he didn't spend half his time rescuing Lois Lane. In this one, Lois is approached in front of an auction house and asked to purchase a tapestry. She is given a thousand dollars. When she leaves the auction, another man with an ugly scar asks for the tapestry, saying he is a friend of the man who gave Lois the money. She refuses and gives the man her work address for later. He reappears, hits Lois, and takes the treasure. So Jimmy and Lois go to Lima and begin to search for the tapestry. Suddenly, Clark shows up. Lois angrily rejects his offer to help (as she always does) and sets out with Olsen to find the tapestry which holds a secret burying place of the Inca treasure. She and Jimmy are left to die in the desert by one of the bad guys and set out on foot to the site. For some reason, the guys leave an opening. Anyway, the end of every episode is pretty much the same, so there isn't much mystery.
