Two scientist brothers create a cyborg robot capable of defeating Superman.
20 January 2007 | by writer93-1See all my reviews

Two scientist brothers create a robot to be a super-criminal. When the robot malfunctions, they decide that they need a human brain to create a cyborg (half man/half machine) which will use Kryptonite as its unlimited power source.

Meanwhile, Lois' sister Lucy is back in Metropolis and dating a man whom Lois thinks is a scum-ball. She investigates and finds that he has a criminal record, to which she tries in a not-so-subtle manner to alert her sister. Her instincts appear to be pretty good, though, since he ends up involved in an armored car robbery gone bad. He is badly shot and his partner sells him to the brothers so that they can use his brain for their cyborg. He wakes up pretty shocked at all this but it doesn't take him long to adjust. When he robs an ATM (by punching through it and grabbing the cash), Lois and Clark show up at the Police scene to cover the story and Lois identifies the picture of her sister's boyfriend from the ATM machine photo.

Before long, the cyborg (nicknamed Metallo by the press) meets Superman and, due to his Kryptonite power source, is able to kick Superman's butt. Jimmy almost takes a picture of the defeated Superman, but Lois stops him. When Perry calls Jimmy on this, Lois admits it was her fault. Perry reminds Lois that she can't let her personal feelings regarding Superman interfere with her objectivity when it comes to a story. She promises it will never happen again.

To bait a trap for Superman, the brothers and Metallo decide to kidnap someone close to him. For once, they decide to kidnap Clark. Lois and Jimmy come to the rescue, but before they do Clark overhears (and sees) that Metallo has a Kryptonite power source. Clark thanks Lois for what she did and Superman tells her she did a very brave thing.
