This Episode of Superman was amazing! I give it 100 Thumbs up.
7 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

I fell in Love with the Parasite for the first time when I watched this Episode. I've always imagined myself in Superman the Animated series TV show where I'm Superman's sidekick, In this Episode when a cute Plain ordinary Janitor Named "Rudy Jones" was stealing large canisters for some sick pain In- the- Ass Crook Named "Martin Lebeau" who wanted to sale the Canisters that was loaded with dangerous chemicals for big loads of hard cold cash. Martin agreed to pay off Rudy's Gambling debts Until he got feed up with Rudy screwing things up (While Martin was driving the the truck like a Freakin' Farm Animal while Poor Rudy was in the back the Chemicals Spilled all over Poor Rudy turning him into a purple Creature with soft smooth skin and Hulking muscles) After Rudy obtained himself with this power his Frist Victims was a Rat, A Poilcewoman, and Martin Lebeau.(With this Power Rudy was able to Feed off anyone he touches and possess any abilities, or any special Power they might have). Anyway Before Parasite could Kill Martin Superman Flys in and stops Parasite from draining Martin to death, Rudy Pretended to Cooperate by going back to S.T.A.R Labs with Superman until Parasite grabbed Superman thus Steals all his powers and goes on a large Crime Spree (Until Later on Rudy loses his powers and goes to steal them back). That night at Clark Kent's Apartment while he was preparing to change into Superman Parasite jumps on Clark and drains his powers once again(Rudy already knows Clark's Secret) Superman wakes up in the boiler room in S.T.A.R Labs where Parasite said that he'll be back every 12 hours to drain Superman's powers. While Parasite was out on another crime Spree Superman tried to break free but it was hopeless but not all hope was lost when Jimmy Olsen shows up and frees Superman from his chains (Almost) Until Parasite returns to feeds off superman until he spots Jimmy and starts to feed off him until Superman finally breaks free and saves Jimmy and tells everyone to clear out of the hall. Parasite attacks Superman so he could drain away all his powers but instead he drains a piece of Kryptonite leaving Parasite with no memory of who he is. (At the Ending of the show we find Rudy sitting in a cell draining the energy of a roach he found out that his powers are still in Effect) I hated how Martin treated Rudy, I would've showed him a thing or two.
