Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Deadman: Deadman Catch

Although I never would have used the adjective to describe him before, Deadman is adorable - at least in this gem of a short. I also love his sidekick raven and the way the world turns to color when  he is possessing someone. This short proves that there is room for cute takes on characters that aren't lame. I can't wait to see what the other two Deadman shorts have up their ghostly sleeves.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Graduation

WHY! These segments are just so lame. I really don't get who thought they were a good idea. The gag this time, Clark's graduation gown got dirty, then he blew away a rain cloud. That's grade A stuff there, right? The dope even flew to his ceremony and landed in his seat without anyone noticing. That's Smallville for ya.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Night of the Living Shadows

Superman took on the first onscreen incarnation of the Shadow Thief who was actually a couple of people including a rat faced burglar and Lex Luthor. As the episode progressed, the Shadow Thief became the Shadow Gang (including an undercover Lois), but even armed with Kryptonite powered tanks, they were no match for the Last Son of Krypton. This episode was actually fairly decent with an angered Superman threatening to throw the bad guys into the sun.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - To Play or not to Play

This segment explored CKs dilemma of whether to play high school football or just to manage the team. Of course he chose team manager, but only after adopting the glasses disguise to get cut from the team after showing off his super powers to make the cut as starting QB. Gee, why didn't he just fly. If the Smallvinos can't figure out that Clark is Superman, he shouldn't even waste his time with a disguise around town.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - Wildsharkk

 I am pretty sure I saw this plot in a James Bond movie - The Spy Who Loved Me, I think? In fact, this was a total rip off of that movie with Lois playing the role of James Bond.  A large tanker captained by Wildsharkk captured other ships. Unfortunately the captain was just a fairly boring guy. I was hoping for a mutated man-shark to fight Superman. This was much more boring having Superman vs a water spout.

Crisis of Infinite Episodes - First Date

Good news, plenty more shorts of Superman driving, but this time with Lana Lang on his first date. We also had the pleasure of watching Clark fix two cars.Maybe they should make a line of instruction auto related videos featuring Superman. I'm sure they would be big sellers.
