Paul manages to get the episode recorded from a remote location, without internet and not only lives to tell the tale, but gets the episode posted for Monday!
In this episode, Paul takes a look at New Adventures of Superboy 25, in which Superboy meets what looks like a reverse Dr Fate (with Spider-Man eyes, now try to get this alternate universe hit single by Kim Carnes out of your head: “He’s got Peter Parker Eyes”). Will Superboy defeat Dr Chaos and save the people of Smallville? Well, probably, because, you know, Superman et al.
