You might believe a man can push an asteroid! Rob and Alan complete their journey through the stars as they explore two more episodes based on the classic 'Menace from the Stars' comic - an episode of 'Superboy' that somehow manages to crowbar in death cults and an episode of 'Lois & Clark' that features some of the most breathtaking flying effects in the history of the character (no it doesn't). Come for superheroics and derring do! Stay for Rob's Lex Luthor monologue!
