When Clark Kent buys a ruby class ring, the red stone is indeed red kryptonite. When he puts it on, his personality is instantly affected, and the former sweet and friendly teenager becomes dark, selfish and ambitious, hurting his parents and his closest friends. He dates Lana Lang, but the rebel Clark dumps her to be with the hot new-arrival in town Jessie Brooks in a night-club. But Jonathan does not give up on him and tries to save Clark from the effects of the red stone with Pete's help. When Clark learns that Jessie and her father are actually fugitives from a witness relocation program pursued by a corrupt federal agent, Clark decides to take matters into his own hands. Elswhere, the blind Lionel becomes more of an annoyance to Lex, forcing him to make some changes.

Did You Know?
In the comics, red kryptonite does not have a consistent affect on Superman. Its effects are completely random and sometimes can be positive. Also, generally speaking, whatever effect the red kryptonite has had it only lasts 24 hours. See more
During the second part of the opening scene at around 3 minutes, U.S Marshal Ted Palmer (played by Michael Tomlinson
) locks the slide of his Glock 17 to the rear while menacing the guy in the tub. This was likely inspired by handguns with visible hammers that can be cocked and de-cocked in a way that lends itself well to film. Until the slide is sent forward (using a lever on the side of the firearm), the Glock is not able to fire. See more
Nothing says school spirit like a ring that looks like it was jacked from P. Diddy.
I think it looks great.

I think we'll be lucky if the glue holds through graduation. I wonder if the ruby's even real.
