Lois and Clark finally have a date night to themselves. With this being their first date, Clark is doing everything he can to plan it to perfection. However, things go sideways quickly when Mr. Mxyzptlk, a powerful being from an alternate dimension, shows up. Claiming to need Superman’s help, the two are soon on an adventure across the multiverse. But there is more to Mxyzptlk’s story than it seems.
Lois and Jimmy have a weird encounter of their own when they meet alternate versions of themselves from the multiverse. Known as the Council of Lois, these members are versions of Lois and Jimmy throughout the multiverse tasked with protecting it from Mxyzptlk and stopping him, no matter the cost. Lois seems a bit cautious and untrusting meeting her alternate selves–and it seems that she has a good reason.
All of this comes with plenty of comedy included with the action, as I’ve come to expect with My Adventures With Superman. Even Mr. Mxyzptlk, who I was familiar with from the previous animated series, was amazing here. I especially liked the easter egg callback to the hat from the animated series. This show is different, yet it pays respects to its roots with how it portrays all of its characters so far.
I have no negatives about this episode. It’s just pure goodness.
Overall, I thought My Adventures With Superman 1×07 was a great episode that had plenty of easter eggs to keep an eye out for. One thing that stands out to me is the file that Lois finds on Superman. When she opens it, a lot is revealed that may change her relationship with Clark. But only time will tell.
