Quotes

Brainiac: Your father is gone. And all the knowledge this Fortress ever held finally belongs to me.
Clark Kent: Leave Chloe alone. You have what you want.
Brainiac: My hunger's never satisfied. Knowledge is what fuels me. And as savage as human beings are, their collective knowledge is exceptionally rich.
Clark Kent: Nothing about you is human. And never will be.
Brainiac: After I've drained this planet of all the human information, Doomsday will annihilate what's left.

Get ready for techno-exorcism, Legion of Superheroes-style
24 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Three popular DC Comics characters surface in an effort to save Clark as much as the world from BrainIAC in this tremendously fun episode of 'Smallville.' A villain from the future- in fact, the 31st century- emerges in an attempt to kill Clark and keep him from interrupting neither Doomsday nor the resurfacing essence of BrainIAC. However, that attempt is thrwarted when Cosmic Boy, Lightning Lad, and Saturn Girl arrive moments later. The three are part of a powerful group from the future known as the Legion of Superheroes, and they know the legend and force that Clark will be at that time. Clark learns that he will be fulfilling his calling centuries later, and that he has a significant role in inspiring other superpowered extra-terrestrials to come to earth and help protect it from the evils, crime and terrorism that takes place and will continue to take place here. The three, however, are convinced that they must kill Chloe's body in order to stop BrainIAC. But Clark, committed to saving lives in every event possible, is convinced that there can be another way to end BrainIAC, but preserve Chloe's life. This comes only after Davis, who has broken out as Doomsday, is used by BrainIAC to entrap his essence within Chloe's body. A wonderful episode that has that Superman feel. The only thing that holds it back is a tight Smallville budget that, while larger than other network shows, could sometimes be even larger to accamodate a superhero show. It will be intriguing to see how Doomsday will be stopped, when Clark realizes it's Davis, and if Doomsday is at all related to the insidious acts of the still-alive Lex Luthor, while at the same time Tess Mercer becomes a further threat to not only the Daily Planet, but to Clark, once she learns that he was the final person to see Lex before he disappeared.
