This marks the first appearance of Tess Mercer. Her name is a wordplay of Miss Teschmacher, Lex Luthor's similar partner-in-crime (and more) in Superman (1978). See more »


In an earlier episode ["Phantom", I believe] when the Martian Manhunter is injured he states he had to go to outer space to be healed by the sun's rays. In this episode he states that the sun's rays nearly killed him and removed most of his powers, contradicting his earlier statement about the sun's healing power. See more »

My, how the Fall of a Fortress can change things
19 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The eighth season starts off with a bang with the episode 'Odyssey.' Three prominent members of the Justice League travel to the Arctic to locate Clark Kent, who disppeared with Lex Luthor after they had privately dueled in Kal-El's training ground of the Fortress of Solitude, which prefaced the Fortresses' collapse. A new CEO, Cassidy Freeman, obsessed with finding Mr. Luthor once again, startles the LuthorCorp franchise. And Chloe's abilities of knowledge are used in a way that she is most uncomfortable. The greatest element of this episode, for me, was the presence of the Justice League, and of the creative way to restore powers that Clark had lost with the fall of the Fortress. Cassidy Freeman stands a tall order to replace Michael Rosenbaum as the show's primary villain, but she had the dark and powerful aura that Rosenbaum was able to hold. We will see if she can maintain it. The only aspect of the episode that left me wondering is why, and how, did Chloe Sullivan lose her power of healing.
