Clark gets an inverse make-over from Lois, in order to become a gray mouse when the Blur goes public. Just then, a flashy media-horny new superhero emerges: Buster Gold, who systematically steals the show. Clark discovers Buster came from the future with a Legionnaire's ring, probably stolen. Generally bullied, shy schoolboy Jaime Reyes is inadvertently infected with the alien scarab which Buster was hired to retrieve for industrialist Ted Kord, hence transformed into the Blue Beetle, an uncontrollable monster. Clark could just expose Buster as a fake coward, but chooses to educate him in superhero ethics. Written by

This boy is absolutely unique. He managed to shutdown the scarab.
I'm guessing not everyone has what it takes to do that. So, Mr. Kord, does this mean that you'll be able to remove it from him?
I- No. I mean, will that take away the power it gives me?
I want to learn how to use them. I want to be a hero like Booster Gold.
I don't know, kid. You know... what do you say we give Miss Lane here an exclusive on the *real* hero of the day?
