Clark Kent: [Super-speeds into Lex's study and Nam-Ek and Aethyr turn to face him] I heard you were looking for me. I'm Kal-El.
Nam-Ek: At last.
Clark Kent: Who are you?
Aethyr: The last survivors of Krypton.
Clark Kent: What do you want?
Nam-Ek: We want you to join with us, Kal-El, and help us make this savage land our utopia.

Who was Sam Loeb?
15 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the end credits of this episode there is a page that says:

"In Memory of Sam Loeb (1988-2005) A True Superboy"

Purusing the credits at IMDb I can find no one named "Loeb"; nor the mystery thirteen-year-old mentioned.

It is always a bit annoying when the producers include mystery memoriams at the end of a movie or episode. It is nice that they choose to do so but it would be helpful to know who they were.

It leaves the audience with this mystery person who may or may not have been germane to the plot. If they are an actor we want to know which one.

So who was Sam Loeb?
