Crisis of Infinite Episodes - The Atomic Superman

Some scientist made an explosive so powerful that he wanted Superman to fly to the moon and drink it to test it. Unfortunately, it made him breathe fire. So Superman went to Mercury for a while to hang with the locals. He ended up powering a fire-powered CPR machine and then realized he'd used up his flame so he went home.

Best Part: This episode was so ridiculous and sporadic that it must have been written by a 5 year old. I would like to offer my congratulations to that kid and say, "keep trying," even though I guess he would be like 45 by now. Gee, I sure hope his writing has improved.

Worst Part: The debut of super-ventriloquism.

  1. How would drinking an explosive be a good test for it?

  2. The doc said it was too explosive to test on Earth, but since Supes is invulnerable he could contain the explosion.
