Yo Greg, sorry Iâve kinda fallen behind with these reviews but life sometimes gets in the way. Anyway, I enjoyed this ep a lot. I have to admit I did find Superboyâs anger issues a bit one not in âWelcome to Happy Harborâ even though I did understand why it was so. Lets face it, being raised in a tube by psychic goblins is probably going to leave you a little lacking in social skills. But this ep, (and to a certain extent âDrop-Zoneâ) has done a great job of letting us see other sides of his character, as well as exploring the underlying reasons for all that anger.
I particularly liked his exchange with Clark, poor kids practically giving Big Blue puppy dog eyes. Not that I donât sympathise with Clark. Even with the best will in the world, dealing with your own clone/son has got to be a pretty daunting prospect. If I were brutally honest, Iâd have to admit Clark is handling this way better then I would be. I know if I met a clone of myself, my first instinct would probably be to reach for a torch and pitch fork. Hardly the rational or ethical response Iâll readily admit, but luckily the Man of Steel is a lot more level headed then me.
Loved Peter MacNicol as Professor Ivo, he brought a great sense of humour and menace to the character without making him sound like a clone of Doc Ock. I just dig the idea tha this short skinny middle-aged nerd is able to strike terror into the hearts of the Justice League. I also noticed that his character design has a very similar colour scheme to AMAZO, red hair and green clothes. I loved this because it neatly explains AMAZOâs goofy silver design, Ivo designed the android to basically look like and idealised version of himself, brilliant! Hope we see the M.O.N.Q.I.s again. J
Black Canary was pretty cool, itâs good to hear Vanessa Marshall again. Iâve heard sheâs your favourite DC character so Iâm interested to see how you handle her.
All and all another great ep, Iâll try and get my âInfiltratorâ review up sometime tomorrow.
Vanessa Marshall is indeed my favorite DC character, so she'll be joining the Justice League in Season Two. Since Vanessa will be voicing/playing herself, we'll be recasting Black Canary to avoid confusion. Our leading candidates are all single-named celebrities: Roseanne, Cher, Lindsay, Madonna or Prince.
Oh, and in case it hasn't been clear for this and the last four questions as well: APRIL FOOLS!!!!!!
