Storyline

While visiting an exposition sponsored by the Luthor Corp in Metropolis, Clark Kent saves a homeless man from an out of control bus using his powerful body to stop the vehicle. But a corrupt police detective, named Sam Phelan, witnesses the event, and blackmails the Kent family, promising to disclose the secret unless Clark steals his files from the internal affairs. When Clark refuses, Phelan retaliates by framing Jonathan for a murder charge and forces Clark to steal a priceless armored vest from the Luther Corp exposition. Meanwhile, Lex Luthor is visited by his former lover Victoria Hardwick, the daughter of the greatest competitor of the Luthor Corp. Also, Principal Kwan fires Chloe as the editor of the school paper, The Torch, leading him to appoint both Clark and Lana as Chloe's replacements. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

While visiting an exposition sponsored by the Luthor Corp. in Metropolis, Clark Kent saves a homeless from an out of control bus using his powerful body to stop the vehicle. The dirty detective Sam Phelan (Cameron Dye) witnesses the event, and blackmails the Kent family, promising to disclose the secret unless Clark steals his files from the internal affairs. Meanwhile Lex Luthor is visited by his former lover Victoria Hardwick (Kelly Brook), the daughter of the greatest competitor of the Luthor Corp.

"Rogue" is a very tense episode, one of the best of this series. Unfortunately the way the plot is resolved is quite predictable. Cameron Dye has an excellent performance in the role of his disgusting character, and the extremely beautiful actress Kelly Brook is another attraction. My vote is nine.

Title (Brazil): "O Mau-Caráter" ("The Bad Character")
