Did You Know?


This is the first time John Shea appears with the traditional bald head for Lex Luthor. When he was a series regular, Shea was allowed to keep his hair, as his movie star looks were kept to be more of a suitor for Lois Lane. His baldness is explained as a side effect from his resurrection. See more »


Clark Kent: Uh, Lois, I want to ask you something.
Lois Lane: Ooh, I'm not going to like it, am I?
Clark Kent: What makes you say that?
Lois Lane: You've got that tone in your voice. You know, when people are uncomfortable, like when they want to borrow your car, or money, your clothes?
Clark Kent: Uh, okay, you got me, I wanna borrow your clothes.
Lois Lane: I bet you'd look real cute in black chiffon.
Clark Kent: What I wanna say is I...
Lois Lane: I know what you want, Clark.
Clark Kent: You do?
Lois Lane: I know you a lot better than you think. How much do you need?

Lex Luther is back.
20 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thanks to his more-than-attentive doctor, Lex Luthor rises out the ashes of his supposed death. The first thing he does is attempt to get his money back from his lawyer, who stole it. The second, and more important to him, thing he does is get Kryptonite, from one of the brother scientists who created Metallo. And, oh yeah, he loses his hair...

Luther and his comrades kidnap the lawyer and Lois and Clark see it. The lawyer first claims that the money's tied up in real estate, but when Luther still dangles him over a pit of hungry rats, he eventually tells him that he can get him involved in Intergang. Luther is still not interested, until the lawyer tells him he knows where he can get Luther some Kryponite, which Luther esteems higher than money and equates with "real power."

Using a variety of costumes, Luther moves around the city under everyone's noses for awhile before finally revealing himself to Lois, whom he claims to still love. He's convinced that she also returns his love, but he will not take no for an answer.
