Storyline

A man named Sylvester Pemberton tracks down Chloe and tells her he knows about her team of superheroes and needs their help. However, before he can explain who he is, he is attacked and killed by Icicle. Clark and Chloe's investigation leads Clark to the former headquarters of the Justice Society of America, an underground team of superheros, where he meets up with Nelson (AKA: Dr. Fate), Carter Hall (AKA: Hawkman) and Courtney (AKA: Star Girl). Courtney pleads with Hawkman and Dr. Fate to help her catch the killer that is targeting their group but they are reluctant to resume their duties as superheroes. Clark, John Jones, Green Arrow and Chloe team up to help the JSA stop Icicle before he murders another member of the group. Meanwhile, Lois receives a package from a mysterious agency called Checkmate, run by the shadowy Amanda Waller. Written by CW Publicity

Trivia

John Jones (aka Martian Manhunter) remarks to Oliver that they did not have dessert on Mars, but since being on Earth, he has developed a fondness for cookies. This is another nod to the fact that in the comics, the Martian Manhunter is quite partial to Oreo cookies. See more »

Dr. Fate: I see everyone's fate but my own. Sometimes that scares me. But when I see the future of someone such as yourself, I believe in tomorrow again.
Clark Kent: When you saw my fate, what did you see?
Dr. Fate: You will lead this generation as Hawkman once lead ours.
Clark Kent: You sound like a group I met from the future. They hinted at my destiny, but they were as vague as you are.

Yeah, this show is going somewhere...
6 February 2010 | by topz-1See all my reviews

...but the only place it's going is down.

I used to be quite a fan of Smallville, because I liked the idea of retelling the Superman story without the cape, but with each season, especially since the writers killed Lex Luthor and the Kents, it continually degraded and is now but an overblown mixture of cheesy special effects ( I can't believe how BAD some of those look! ), especially whenever someone is supposed to be flying, even cheesier dialogs ( maybe they should hire a writer ), and by far the most untalented cast since Baywatch (unfortunately though, Smallville is not half as entertaining, since it lacks Baywatch's frequent show of girls with large breasts in wet bathing suits).

In short: Instead of coming up with a new super hero (or villain) for each episode, the creators of this show should have invested their money in a believable story line.

I am surprised I keep watching this nonsense - must be some twisted sense of nostalgia, since I used to be a big fan of the Superman comic books.
