Welcome to Smallville


Bat-Shit Insane.

I think that pretty much says it all right there, but just for the record, that comes from Superboy #122's "The Jealous Clark Kent," a story involving a schizophrenic ventriloquist with a Superboy puppet who also uses--what else?-- authentic Red Kryptonite in his act. Because apparently, back in 1965, people hadn't quite figured out that performing on stage with radioactive space rocks was probably not a good idea.

Needless to say, Clark gets a hefty dose of Plot Twist Radiation and ends up developing the ventriloquist's own Devil Doll-esque hatred of his Superboy puppet, and, well...

..things pretty much go downhill from there.

You know, there was a time when my parents caught me in the basement slapping around the puppet, and... You know what? I'm going to go ahead and cut that one off right there.

Regardless, Superboy's eventually cured of his dementia by a dose of Green Kryptonite (it's probably best if you don't ask), and ends up curing the ventriloquist of his multiple personality disorder... by making him think his dummy is talking to him.

So it's pretty much just another Tuesday in Kansas, I guess.

(Clark glares, with glowing red eyes, at Ma Kent from over the police officer's shoulder)

"I'm only going to ask you once more Mrs. Kent. Are you absolutely sure the puppet just fell down some steps?"

At least he's not slapping puppet Superboy's monkey...

The current Superman really needs to use his Super-ventrilquism more often.

I really think that if the writers of "Smallville" would break out some old Silver Age comics, the plotlines on the show would be vastly improved. Come on! Who wouldn't want to see Tom Welling slapping himself!

I knew you had to be a MSTie. Somehow, I just knew. Right now you couldn't be more awesome if you punched a bear in the face.

Super ventriloquism. Right, right. Definitely one of the more necessary extra abilities for an alien lifeform to possess. I mean, think of how many taxis he could hail in NYC thereby causing mass gridlock, panic, and confusion!

"Slapping around the puppet?"

Is THAT what you kids are calling it these days?

So, I don't actually believe this will work.
