Storyline

After escaping from his mean stepparents James Gibson and Sky, the boy Ryan James is hit by Martha Kent's car on the road. She brings Ryan to a hospital, and the boy claims to have amnesia. The Kent family offers to lodge Ryan in their farm while waiting for the social services. The boy becomes friends with Clark Kent and his friends, and has the power of reading minds, and his adopted parents use him to commit robberies. Clark helps the boy against his stepfather while Ryan knows Clark is different when Ryan sees that he's the only one whose mind he cannot read. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

Like the front cover of Action Comics #1 in which Superman made his first appearance, the front cover of Warrior Angel #1 depicts the hero holding a car aloft with his hands. Both comics were originally published in June 1938. See more »

Goofs

When Ryan and Clark are playing basketball you can see a tractor near the guys. After some shots then the tractor moves for no apparent reason left and right about 1-2 meters. See more »

Quotes

Clark Kent: Ryan does say weird things. He even said that you want me to ask you to prom and that you already bought a dress!
[Chloe slows down and smiles nervously, not able to say anything]
Clark Kent: It's not pink, is it?
Chloe Sullivan: Uh... Okay, I-I... You know, I was just looking at it, it's not like I actually bought it!
Clark Kent: How would Ryan know that?
Chloe Sullivan: [pauses] I don't know. Maybe he's an alien or called Miss Cleo. I don't know.

Very touching
26 August 2006 | by (Serbia, Europe) – See all my reviews

I started to re-watch "Smallville" from the very beginning. As far, I found this 16th episode the best one. Thank God, there's finally one with abilities who is not villain! On the contrary, little Ryan is one little soul that suffers because of his step parents. He is conscious what he does is is wrong and try to resist. He also have a problem to hide his ability because he is just a little boy, so he comments frankly what he finds out in people's thoughts. He dreams about a super-hero who can save the world. The most touching scene is near the end when Ryan gives his super-hero comic books to Clark and says "I don't them any more.I have you". Desperately needing a protector, he finally found his own one. They almost make me cry.
