Warning! The next incorporates spoilers for the Superman & Lois episode known as “Head On.” Learn at your personal danger!
Superman & Lois has maintained a gentle streak of unusual its viewers for the reason that collection premiere, so I suppose I should not be shocked that it blindsided us with yet one more sudden reveal. Season 3 has been fairly heavy thus far in coping with Lois‘ most cancers analysis, and fortunately, Clark and the household have not needed to take care of too many obstacles to allow them to proceed to be by her aspect as she undergoes therapy. Sadly, it is trying just like the stress will flip up quickly sufficient, as Season 3 villain Bruno Mannheim simply got here into possession of the physique of Bizarro.
Viewers may keep in mind that Bizarro Superman wasn’t essentially evil as soon as we lastly obtained to know him in Season 2, however was misunderstood and motivated to violence by his wish to destroy Ally Allston and save his world. In the end, those that watched Season 2 (or revisit with their HBO Max subscription) will keep in mind that he died as an ally to the Superman we all know, so why ought to we be nervous?
Properly, in case you revisit the early episodes of Superman & Lois Season 3, you may keep in mind that Bruno Mannheim was testing some type of reanimation serum in his lab. He used the serum to resurrect a deceased Atom Man, who instantly got here again to life after being injected. Sadly, he appeared to be a shell of his former self and screamed mindlessly as he fought towards the restraints that held him to the desk.
Atom Man not appeared answerable for his extra logical self, so think about what would occur if Bruno Mannheim used the identical methodology to deliver again Bizarro! He’d have a brainless zombie with the ability of Superman, albeit one which possibly even he cannot management. No matter how this might play out, it is sure to be a significant headache for Clark to attempt to deal with.
And Clark will not be in the perfect headspace to be coping with any main disaster in the mean time. Hell, one would suppose that if he had been extra on prime of his sport, he would’ve been in a position to forestall the seize of Bizarro’s corpse within the first place. One thing like this might be devastating for Superman to attempt to topple, and with Clark nervous about every part occurring with Lois, he will not be as much as the duty alone.
Luckily, Clark can at the least depend on John Henry Irons and Sam Lane to supply what assist they’ll with their assets. It is also value noting that Jordan‘s powers have vastly improved this season, although he is no Superman. One of the best factor they’ve going for them is that this reanimated Bizarro may not be as intelligent as the primary one and will subsequently be simpler to trick into any form of lure they provide you with. Nonetheless, this isn’t a problem Superman is in place to go up towards, particularly with different villains like Lex Luthor nonetheless to return on this season.
We’ll have to attend and see how this case performs out for the Superman & Lois crew, as a brand new episode will not premiere on The CW till Tuesday, April twenty fifth. That is fairly a time to attend on the payoff to this superior reveal, however followers can move at the least a couple of minutes till then by revisiting Bizarro’s story.
