A man named Sylvester Pemberton tracks down Chloe and tells her he knows about her team of superheroes and needs their help.

Did You Know?


Alan Scott is referred to as the Golden Age Green Lantern. He is technically the first Green Lantern but is not as well known as his "successor" Hal Jordan. Scott drew his power from a magical ring and charged it with a magical battery. When the Golden Age of comics ended, the character was retooled as test pilot Hal Jordan, who would wield not a magical power ring, but one that was a technological creation of the Guardians of the Universe. The rings harnessed the green energy of Will, the most powerful force in the universe. The Guardians eventually divided the universe into 3600 sectors which are all guarded by their own Green Lantern to form the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps. The sector that includes planet Earth is 2814. Scott never officially became a member of the Green Lantern Corps, but his daughter did. See more »

Hawkman: [to Clark] Dr. Fate says you're a big deal. I don't see it.
Dr. Fate: Clark Kent is not like the others. His path is righteous.
Stargirl: If Dr. Fate says he's okay, that means he's okay, right?
Clark Kent: Why have you been watching us?
Stargirl: Sylvester wanted to bring together a new Justice Society - One with the surviving members and us new kids.
Hawkman: It wouldn't have worked, Courtney. People never learn. This generation will make the same mistakes the last one did like the one before that. Obvious by how you've skipped your homework, ...

Best Smallville Episode Ever
6 February 2010 | by bxblazin69See all my reviews

I would definitely have to say that this episode was amazing. There definitely must be new writers on staff, because this was leap and bounds better then any other Smallville i have seen. I was starting to lose faith in this show, but i am glad to see they made a lot of changes. There was plenty of action and had a really good plot. And i loved the huge catalog of DC characters that were brought into the show which i am glad, because a show can get boring with the same characters for so long over many seasons. My only hope is that now the show continues with this pace, because now they have a lot to live up to. I would really like to see more of the same from here on with this show.
