Cameron Mahkent / Icicle (as Wesley Macinnes)


A man named Sylvester Pemberton tracks down Chloe and tells her he knows about her team of superheroes and needs their help. However, before he can explain who he is, he is attacked and killed by Icicle. Clark and Chloe's investigation leads Clark to the former headquarters of the Justice Society of America, an underground team of superheros, where he meets up with Nelson (AKA: Dr. Fate), Carter Hall (AKA: Hawkman) and Courtney (AKA: Star Girl). Courtney pleads with Hawkman and Dr. Fate to help her catch the killer that is targeting their group but they are reluctant to resume their duties as superheroes. Clark, John Jones, Green Arrow and Chloe team up to help the JSA stop Icicle before he murders another member of the group. Meanwhile, Lois receives a package from a mysterious agency called Checkmate, run by the shadowy Amanda Waller. Written by CW Publicity

Did You Know?


"Absolute Justice" is the only two-word episode title in the series; all of the other episodes are titled with one word each. Originally this was intended as a two-parter, titles "Society" and "Legends," but the WB saw the marketing potential and combined them into a single two-hour event. See more »


Icicle mistakenly calls "Waller" "Walter". See more »


Dr. Fate: The hope for tomorrow that your alien friend spoke of - you are that hope. I have seen it.
Clark Kent: Because you see the future?
Dr. Fate: I see everyone's fate but my own. Sometimes that scares me. But when I see the future of someone such as yourself, I believe in tomorrow again.
Clark Kent: When you saw my fate, what did you see?
Dr. Fate: You will lead this generation as Hawkman once lead ours.
Clark Kent: You sound like a group I met from the future. They hinted at my destiny, but they were as vague as you are.
Dr. Fate: Then let me be specific. ...

Best Smallville Episode Ever
6 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I would definitely have to say that this episode was amazing. There definitely must be new writers on staff, because this was leap and bounds better then any other Smallville i have seen. I was starting to lose faith in this show, but i am glad to see they made a lot of changes. There was plenty of action and had a really good plot. And i loved the huge catalog of DC characters that were brought into the show which i am glad, because a show can get boring with the same characters for so long over many seasons. My only hope is that now the show continues with this pace, because now they have a lot to live up to. I would really like to see more of the same from here on with this show.
