  1. As far as the missiles go, I always thought that the Army missile was the one that Lex wanted to hit the fault. When Otis screws that up, he then has to switch gears and get the Navy missile to hit the fault, knowing that the Army would be on extra guard now. That’s why he’s telling Otis to get it right this time, even though he’s not the one making the changes, because if this one goes wrong, they’re out of back-ups.

    The fact that it’s going to hit Hackensack, which is so close to NYC/Metropolis, really should have him worried more. I guess being that far underground, he figures that it’s a natural fallout shelter.

    1. Exactly. The missile was going to Hackensack because of Otis’s mistake, not a diversion for Superman. Remember, Lex never thought he would leave his lair because of the kryptonite. But thanks to Miss T, that all changed.

  2. Thank you, CFranks, for finally saying what any parent has known forever: A full-powered baby Clark would accidentally kill his parents with his first tantrum.

    1. Even at 8 years old, I could see my daughter killing my wife and me at the end of a typical day when she’s tired and cranky, if she had Superman’s powers. It would be like living in that Twilight Zone episode, It’s a Good Life, with the omnipotent little boy.

  3. I do like the indignation in Superman’s response to Lex. He has been pretty subdued, even in his super-heroics so far. So it was good to see Superman kind of lose his cool a little in the context of a major threat. Humanizes him in some way!

  4. Could no one hear the robo-voice auto-tuning going on with John’s mic, or is that only apparent after the show is recorded?
