Puts New Meaning Into The Phrase 'Shock Jock'
11 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some acid-tongued female shock jock is trashing Superman on the FM airwaves. It seems like a lot of people in town are listening to her.

She stages a concert in downtown Metropolis, despite the pleas from the police, her manager and others to cancel because of a thunderstorm. When Superman shows up, she just tells him off, too. There is a lot electricity in the air and it's dangerous. Her fans are even dumber than her and hang around. When lightning strikes, the obnoxious "Miss Willis" gets fried.

At the hospital, she discovers she now is "pure energy" and she can zap anyone or anything with electric powers. She can travel trough electric circuits and fly. The problem is her attitude has gone from bad to worse. Can Superman give this woman an "attitude adjustment?"

Lori Petty voices an annoying-but-fun-to-watch different kind of super-villain in "Livewire." This was not only an interesting episode but extremely colorful with all the neon colors of the nighttime in the big city.
