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

No, I'm not. Not like you think, kid. But, listen, you can be. Someone once told me that the suit doesn't make the hero, so you fight it.
Yes, you can. Fight it. You can be a hero. You just have to have faith in what you are and what you're gonna be. It's your choice, kid. You choose.
