Storyline

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 parents, 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

Finding and Controlling the X-Ray Vision
10 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

The teenage mutant Tina Greer (Lizzy Caplan) 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 Greer (Beverly Breuer). 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 troubles to control his new-found power, with the support of his stepparents. Lex Luthor is blackmailed by a dirty journalist, who found his hidden obscure past, but reverts the situation in the end.

In "X-Ray", Lex Luthor finally shows his evil hidden side, and honestly he is my favorite character up to this moment due to the unpredictability of his steps. Maybe I am repetitive, but the charming cast, the great cinematography and the better and better special effects, make "X-Ray" another great episode of this excellent TV series. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Visões de Raio-X" ("X-Ray Visions")
