Smallville Season 11 #20

Superman is down, and Batman is frozen. You tuned in to the right bat-website at the right bat-time.

Smallville-20Oliver gives Lex a call saying that he has yet again sent cryptic emails. Lex had just found out from Otis that he had done so, and Lex thinks his subconscious is trying to tell him something. Oliver says that Lex’s subconscious is trying to actually tell him something instead. Cut to suicide slums, Batman, though frozen always has a way out. Using his utility belt, he activates a heater (of some kind…. Some how), and races off to find Joe Chill. Batman failed in saving him, he was frozen by Mr. Freeze. Locating Superman, he finds him on the floor shot numerous times. Outside, Lois is trying to figure out the scene. Batman knows the Metropolis Police Dept. is coming, and he summons his Batmobile. Over the police radio, Lois hears that batman has Superman. She gives chase… To be continued.


Anyway this marks the return of Chris Cross and I’m clearly not happy about it. But I will say the introduction of his batmobile is as impressive as the entirety of the bat pod was in The Dark Knight. It has this homage look to it, and that ranges from the entire anthology of Batman films to the Adam West show, which is something Smallville would have done.

The way I’m curious to see if batman keeps some of the kryptonite–if he doesn’t then this isn’t the real batman and I’m done with this book.
