->''"From there, we move right into what Uzi called the Rube Goldberg Machine that is Metropolis, and I really, really love this scene. Not just because of the [[DisasterDominoes weird interconnected pratfalls]], but because itís this great reminder that everyone in Metropolis is in this bizarre state of constant danger. These are people who canít even go to work without getting set on fire by robot penguins. No wonder they need Superman...It builds to exactly the same kind of weird premise that youíd see in a [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] comic, where a guy is in danger of literally drowning in his car. I can see the ''[='=]How did this man drown ó on the middle of a crowded street?![='=]'' as a cover blurb on a Cary Bates comic."''
