Smallville - ''Booster''

Spoiler Level: High

Booster Gold and Blue Beetle!  And not just the new Blue Beetle, but Ted Kord too!  I always love Geoff Johns episodes.

With this episode, Clark has really turned a corner.  First off, he spent all his public time rockin' the glasses.  While I don't necessarily agree with the bumbling Clark persona-- the comics have done just fine without it for over 20 years now-- I'm happy to see him establishing his secret identity.  Secondly, we got that absolutely wonderful scene of Clark changing in the phone booth.  And lastly (and most importantly), Clark doesn't talk down to Booster Gold and lecture him like he used to lecture Green Arrow, he inspires him.  That's the way Superman should be.

As usual, thanks to Home of the Nutty for the screen caps.  (Sadly, there was no scene in the episode of Booster, Beetle and Blur all together.) And also as usual, this episode is still available to watch for free at
