The Green Arrow sends out for reinforcements and Bart Allen, a.k.a. Impulse, Arthur Curry (Aquaman) and Victor Stone (Cyborg) return to Smallville to help him take down LuthorCorp's secret lab called 'Project 33.1'. During a break-in at the LuthorCorp facility, Bart is captured and tortured by Lex for information to who hired him. Clark sets off to rescue him but is felled by kryptonite. An alarmed Chloe goes to Oliver for help, and the newly formed "justice league" springs into action to rescue Clark and Bart. Meanwhile, Oliver painfully decides to break up with Lois, feeling that his dedicating to justice is more important, but he leaves out that information from her. Written by
Did You Know?
In the episode the various heroes are given code names. "Watchtower" for Chloe as the team coordinator and intelligence asset in homage to the role usually played by The Martian Manhunter for The Justice League in the comics. "Boyscout" for Clark is in homage to a common nickname Justice Leaguers have for Superman, "The Big Blue Boyscout". In the comics Batman gave "Impulse" his code name. Batman meant it sarcastically, hence the joke about how Bart didn't get to choose his own code name. See more
[to Chloe over radio
Green Arrow to Watch Tower. Boy Scout's out of the woods.
If you hadn't run off all half-cocked, you could've picked your own codename. You don't wanna play for the team, that's fine. Be smart about it.
Point taken. Where's Bart?
Impulse. He didn't get to pick his own codename either.
