Alec Abrams: [looking at comic] Warrior Angel.
[to Harry]
Alec Abrams: Hey, Harry, is it true that no one's ever read it before? I read on the Internet that no one in the whole wide world knows what the Warrior Angel's secret battle cry is. You've got to let me take a look at this.
Harry: No, no. You know better than that. Anybody opens that book, the value drops.
Alec Abrams: I know. But aren't you at least curious what's inside?
Harry: Of course. I mean, who wouldn't?

Zattana returns to Smallville after an entertaining first appearance in "Hex". This time the plot revolves around a young boy who ages and gains powers after coming into possession of......... get ready for it....... a magic comic book. The concept is just as corny as it sounds, and for the most part this episode would be more appropriately placed in the 80s Superboy series than here in Smallville, but it's not entirely out of place thanks to the comedic tone in the writing. Nobody should be expecting even the slightest degree of seriousness or drama in "Warrior", but then again, I doubt anyone involved in the show were attempting that. No storyline progresses here. You could skip this episode completely and not miss a single thing in regards to the overall season. There's nothing wrong with a fun filler episode every now and then. This isn't perfectly executed, but as I already said, the tone of the episode is funny enough that it doesn't come across as too goofy. Thanks to the setting at a comic book convention, there are a few amusing nods to the sci-fi/ superhero culture. The story does get a little too serious for its own good closer to the end, but for the most part "Warrior" is acceptably cheesy fun.
