Lex! Lex Luth-OR!
Wow, Lex really lost his shit, even if Superman's plan was retarded.
I.... I can't believe I liked this show when I was a kid. I mean, sure, it's a well known fact that kids have terrible taste. But I never realized just how terrible my tastes were.
We were desperate for decent cartoons, and this floated near the top amid all the Rickety Rockets and Gary Coleman Shows. At least there were supervillains in this season.
Contrived. Exposition. Over coming me.
If my superpower was being bald I'd have a chip on my shoulder too.
THE ORIGIN OF THE JOKER:
"Greetings, citizen! I am Batman!"
"Batman! I'm your biggest fan! I collect all your memorabilia! I keep it here in this room in my clown makeup factory."
"Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to juggle explosive chemicals while idly strolling next to this drum of industrial clown waste."
"I'll....let myself out."
"You did this to me, Batman! Now you'll never have this antidote I made that would have brought your parents back to life!"
Superboy should have retard-proofed the lab
Huh, so the antidote to kryptonite is just a chip o' the stuff mixed in a bit of seltzer water?
Lex if you really hate Superboy so much why don't you use that basketball sized chunk of kryptonite to kill him right now?
Oh wait, you're high as shit on lab fumes. Carry on with your crazy threats.

Way to poison the town's drinking water with kryptonite, Lex.
Five stars for Luthor running for his life at 1:30. That's generally a good idea when Superboy tries to do you a favor.
There are various origins and recastings of Luthor, but the one I want to see is Lex Luthor, Man of Bronze: Lex doing the Doc Savage thing, becoming a scientific adventurer and the idol of millions. He's basically a decent guy but with two character flaws: he expects to be treated as the most amazing man you've ever met, and he's vain about his long flowing red hair. So when a certain Man of Steel finally makes the scene and out-amazings Lex, the stress starts making his hair fall out, with supervillainous results.
Superboy should have realized this guy was trouble when he saw the creepy shrine Lex had set up in his honor. The guy was a Mark David Chapman waiting to happen.
It's true. Premature hair loss can drive a guy nuts.
Hey, it's the voice of All-Star Snork.

It's a good reason to hate someone so much you think about destroying the earth a couple dozen times. That is just normal. We all go through that.
Also, I remember watching this when I was 6 and being completely mystified by Lex's anger issues.
I love the implied "video camera everywhere at all locations and times in history" that these shows have.
With a guy who is paid to narrate every event everywhere no less.
"(sigh) Later, in Sue Johnson's bedroom, as the young woman is applying ointment to her infected toe ..."

I hate to break this to you superboy, but your new friend just _reeks_ of meth. Build him a lab? What were you thinking!
|Robin Kestrel |
Why you gotta run hot and cold like that, baby?
I like how Superboy turned that wood siding into brick to build a lab to help his new pal Lex go on to become the world's best 28 year-old boy scientist.
At 2:35, it looks like the fumes are wrecking Superboy's hairline as well.
