A Former Kryponite Now Is On Earth: Good Or Bad?
ccthemovieman-1 from United States
7 July 2007
From a secret compartment just discovered by a scientist at Star Labs,
an small projector enables Superman to get a look at something he knows
existed in Krypton: "the phantom zone," a place where they imprisoned
The next thing you know, a ray burst comes out of the projector and
some giant insect-like creature comes and flies away, crashing through
the ceiling. The alien winds up back in the projector, thankfully,
before he creates much more damage.
What this episode really is about is another prisoner in that "Phantom
Zone," a woman named Mala, who used to be second-in-command of
Planetary Defenses. Mala and the commander, Jax-Ur, wind up thirsting
too much for power Their overthrow of the military is thwarted and
Jor-El, Superman's father, sentences Jax-Ur to life imprisonment in the
Zone. Mala, whom the council saw more sympathetically, was given a
20-year sentence. She is in the projector and is yelling for her
freedom because she's served her time. She, of course, doesn't know
there is no Krypton anymore.
Superman learns all of this after going back to his North Pole
underground place of knowledge, or whatever it's called. Soft-hearted
Superman decides to grant Mala her wish and, through a knob on the
projector, she's now on Earth. Superman takes her to a retreat area to
fill her in on what this planet is and how she, too, will have super
powers once the sun rays start penetrating her.
You just know this is a mistake and this an evil woman who is going to
cause problems, but I could be wrong. I won't say anymore, for those
who haven't watched this episode or series.
