[ Season 1 !Season 2 !Season 3 ! Season 4 ]
The evil Lord Norr invades Smallville.
This ep has an Anti-war message - it was a political act to show it after 9/11 in 2001.
Lois and Clark try to get married again. But this time they must contend with The wedding wrecker.
Something is making people in their twenties die of old age. The theme of the ep is Eternal Youth. Will Superman outlive Lois?
Lois and Clark are settling into married boredom. Lois meets with an informant, and winds up getting framed for murder!
Alan Rachins [LA Law] is an embittered scientist who wants revenge on Lois. He brainwashes Lois, causing her to hallucinate.
A photo of Lois and Superman together gets published in the Tabloids. This is part of a smear campaign, although the photo itself is genuine. A peace treaty hangs in the balance - if Superman cannot be trusted with his friend's wife, how can foreigners trust him?
Mister Mixpizzle-whatever, a magical interdimensional elf, is in town. His powers allow him to defeat Superman at every move.
Luckily, the elf-sprite-fellow is just a trickster with a twisted sense of humour.
Mr Gadget [John Spencer - West Wing] is released from jail. He wants to extort an unfeasibly large amount of money out of Metropolis City Council, but the only thing that can stop him (apart from the fact they don't have the money) is ... Superman! Luckily he has access to Red Kryptonite!
Perry White's Prodigal Son is in town. Jimmy Olsen is jealous, and investigates his rival.
Lois and Clark are spotted canoodling by a reporter. Unfortunately Clark is dressed as Superman, and the reporter is a rival from a Tabloid. Soon, the Adultery is front-page news!
Superman refuses to deny the rumours, because technically he would be lying! Foreign Peace Envoys refuse to trust a man who might be sleeping with his friend's wife. The fact that Clark Kent doesn't seem to object in a purely private matter is ignored by all.
The Tabloid's owner is a murderous egomaniac who wants to become respectable and win an International Peace Award. With Superman smeared, the egomaniac offers his services as mediator in an international Peace negotiation. The villain's plan is laughably OTT, and the ending is a complete cop-out.
Tempus escapes from the Metropolis loonybin, and from custody of a TimeCop. He sets himself up as Presidential Candidate John Doe - lucky, since Metropolis seems to be Capital of the USA instead of Washington DC.
Tempus is an irritating villain, but his plan is oddly familiar. He rules as John Doe, using subliminal messages and Leninist banners. He uses a satellite network to broadcast a brainwashing signal to telephones ... An idea stolen by The Master when he posed as Mr Saxon in Dr Who (2005) .
Lois is the only one who can resist Tempus' brainwashing. Until help arrives - HG Wells and the Alternate Universe's Superman.
Kristanna Loken uses a computer to determine who Superman's secret identity is. Jimmy Olsen is a 97% match, so she seduces him. This would have made more sense when the character was still played by Michael Landes ( SU2 ), who was sometimes mistaken for Clark Kent's younger brother. And how come the computer ignored Clark Kent as a suspect?
Billionaire Dwight Schultz [ Babylon 5 ] wants to create world peace by putting an SDI-style superweapon in satellite. When he can't get NASA co-operation, he decides to blackmail Superman into helping.
Lois and Clark aren't getting any private time. 8 days without sex? Well, they went without it for 3 years before they got married and the Curse was lifted!
There's a new superhero in town. Vixen, a somewhat butch spandex-clad blonde, who runs faster than Superman and can throw fireballs. She tends to use excessive force, though.
The Daily Planet has a new owner. Unfortunately some villains want to kill him ...
With Vixen out of the way, the villains decide to kill off everyone involved in making her. Their assassin is a shadow-man, who can pass through locked doors. Unfortunately he's allergic to direct light ...
The Newspaper's new owner continues his manipulation of Lois and Clark.
The Villains are trying to rebuild LexCorp. They also want to obtain Lex Luthor's greatest prize: a tape which tells who Superman's secret identity is!
Lois and Clark face off against ... Lex Luthor's other son!
A small-time crook [Tim Thomerson - Trancers ] is on the run from a big-time Gangster. Yes, Superman STILL hasn't ended Organised Crime in Metropolis.
Thomerson's plan is to use a supernatural device to magically switch his soul with the Gangster's. Before that, of course, he'll have to switch with an intermediary - Clark Kent!
Orphaned kids are going missing, and Lois wants to track them down. It turns out that a toymaker who wants to be Peter Pan is behind the kidnappings. Doesn't this sound like a similar ep a couple of years ago?
Clark's parents are in town, as always. Lois' parents pay a visit, too. Even though they're divorced and constantly arguing.
The villain realises he can't face Superman. However, when he discovers Clark's secret identity he then kidnaps both sets of parents!
