My Adventures with Superman - Let's Go to Ivo Tower, You Say

"Let's Go to Ivo Tower, You Say" is the weakest of episode of the series so far with Clark (Jack Quaid) debating about whether or not to tell Lois (Alice Lee) the truth while she goes overboard in her attempts to uncover Superman's secrets and find out what exactly he's hiding. This dynamic continues into our trio's first official assignment for The Daily Planet covering a gala at Ivo Tower, offering more attempts for Lois to go overboard in her investigative journalist mode which seems incapable of understanding how to actually work information out of subject, where a crazed Anthony Ivo (Jake Green), out to prove the worth of his latest invention, takes the Parasite armor out for a test spin terrifying his guests and leading to the arrival of Superman.

The entire episode is mostly forgettable with yet another subpar take on a Superman villain which doesn't do much for the episode's action sequences. The only notable moment is in the epilogue where Lois makes a discovery that leads her to suspect Clark Kent is Superman, setting up the thread for the next couple episodes. However, even that sequence has some issues as it seems to contradict Jimmy's (Ishmel Sahid) assertions in a later episode of knowing Clark's secret for weeks as his actions here could then only be seen as deliberately putting damaging information in front of Lois to out his best friend. Not cool, Jimmy. Not cool.
