"Poor Sarah Essen, an amateur in No Man's Land. She confronts the Joker in Commissioner Gordon's office, which is crawling with babies. Dumb move: The Clown shoots her when she has no choice but to catch one."

"It breaks my heart to see that Robert Beltran and Robert Duncan McNeill were chosen to face off with Kurtwood Smithís Annorax because they are two of the weakest performers in a mixed regular cast. McNeill makes Paris far too stubborn and donít get me started on Beltran's hero worship of their host! Itís a shame because I think Kate Mulgrew and Jeri Ryan (Seven would be able to see the logic in improving planets) would have done a much better job. As a result these scenes are pretty flat despite Smithís efforts to make them work."
David: If I were Lex, Clark would scare the crap out of me.

"Magneto is, ostensibly, a bad guy, but heís also a guy who tries to break the Beast out of prison, not for his own gain, but because heís helping out a fellow mutant. Itís a nice introduction to how he works, especially with the way he calls out Xavier for leaving his student to rot in jail. For his part, the Beast politely refuses the rescue, which does a nice job of representing Xavierís more pacifist views. Or, you know, as pacifist as you can be while still running an outlaw paramilitary strike force featuring a guy who with can punch you with a fist made of knives, but it still counts. Then again, with the way Beastís trial is going to end up going, itís not exactly a glowing recommendation for passive resistance."
