A man named Sylvester Pemberton tracks down Chloe and tells her he knows about her team of superheroes and needs their help. However, before he can explain who he is, he is attacked and killed by Icicle. Clark and Chloe's investigation leads Clark to the former headquarters of the Justice Society of America, an underground team of superheros, where he meets up with Nelson (AKA: Dr. Fate), Carter Hall (AKA: Hawkman) and Courtney (AKA: Star Girl). Courtney pleads with Hawkman and Dr. Fate to help her catch the killer that is targeting their group but they are reluctant to resume their duties as superheroes. Clark, John Jones, Green Arrow and Chloe team up to help the JSA stop Icicle before he murders another member of the group. Meanwhile, Lois receives a package from a mysterious agency called Checkmate, run by the shadowy Amanda Waller. Written by CW Publicity

An hour and a half of pure Cheese
17 February 2010 | by springerincaliSee all my reviews

I am a fan of smallville but this episode was god awful. The regular actors on smallville are not the best in the business but they are usually alright to watch. In this episode they failed. Both the regular actors and the ones brought in for this episode Over acted every line they had. So bad in fact that it reminded me of an 80s after school special. Hawkman with a horrible Christan Bale Batman impression and a whining little metro dude as icicle were the worst characters ever not to mention the bad one-liners by every character in every scene. Then to add insult to injury the make this crap fest an hour and a half long! what a waste of time.
