Tina Greer is a meteor-rock mutant teenage girl who has the power to transform into the shape and face of whoever she wants. She robs Smallville Bank pretending to be Lex Luthor, and accidentally kills her mother Rose. She becomes obsessed with Lana Lang's family, and decides to assume her identity. Meanwhile, Clark Kent finds that he has X-ray vision, and has trouble to control his new-found power, with the support of his stepparents, as well as trying to hide it from Pete, Chloe, and Lana. Lex Luthor is blackmailed by a dirty journalist, named Roger Nixon, who found some dirt on Lex's hidden obscure past. But Lex reverts the situation in the end by blackmailing the journalist to investigate Clark Kent. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A new power emerges
11 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It looks like we've got a new power on our hands. X ray vision. It was very cool how they had Clark first use the power. It also brought up another side of Lex...or did it? Lex is caught in a bank robbery of his own bank, but it is revealed that it's high school student Tina Greer who has the ability to shape shift.

Throughout the episode, it deals with Clark's trouble to be able to control the X-Ray power. Although, after a scene in the episode, I don't think he'd want to control it. Haha.

This is also the first episode I've noticed besides the pilot, that the suspicion of Lex doing bad things will always be there due to the misdeeds of his father. Everyone seems to be blaming Lex and his father for everything bad that's been happening in Smallville. I think this will develop in Lex's head and be one of the things that turn him into Clark's archnemesis.

P.S. Clark never gets credit for his heroic deeds.
