Episode 42 - Tools of the Trade (Superman: The Animated Series S01E12)

We've got a big one this week, team. In this Very Important episode of Superman, we meet Metropolis' 2 top cops, Bruno Mannheim makes a new friend and we are introduced to the greatest threat the DCAU has ever seen.

SCU's leader, Maggie Sawyer, and her top man, Dan Turpin, are forced to consider bringing in Superman on their investigation (something Turpin is wholly against) after Bruno Mannheim starts suddenly, mysteriously, packing far more firepower than he ever had before.

In between the earth-shattering revelations we experience Graham actively fighting against Skype, Mitch and Cameron threatening to leave and start a Baking themed podcast and a general low-level chaos. It's a hell of a week.

Your Komix Korner recommendation this week is Mech Cadet Yu by Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa.
