Get Ready For A Magic Comic & Zatanna On Smallville

Is this a good follow up for Absolute Justice?

Almost a month ago we ran images and the synopsis for the Smallville episode, "Warrior."  It was originally set to air on January 29 but was bumped back to this week.  This is the episode where Zatanna returns to Smallville.  This is also the episode where Lois is dressed in a female warrior outfit at a comic book convention (and looks suspiciously like Wonder Woman). 

METROPOLIS HOSTS A COMIC BOOK CONVENTION — DC COMICS’ CHARACTER ZATANNA RETURNS — Clark (Tom Welling) meets Zatanna (guest star Serinda Swan) at a comic book convention, where she tells him her father charmed a copy of the comic book “Warrior Angel” and it holds magical powers.  A young man named Stephen (guest star Carlo Marks) steals the comic book and develops super powers, transforming himself into Warrior Angel and saving Chloe (Allison Mack) from a horrible accident. Meanwhile, Lois (Erica Durance) becomes jealous of Clark’s relationship with Zatanna.  Allison Mack directed the episode written by Bryan Q. Miller.     

 Here's a couple video clips The CW has put out to show you what to expect:

Zatanna is nice and all, but I just can't see how she gets her own series when Catwoman doesn't have her own comic any more, and she is far more of an interesting character. I think a Catwoman reboot movie is in order as well, and none of that "cats reviving the dead" Bull$#&@ from the previous movies.

I still think Wonder Woman should make an appearance.

Mmm more Zatanna - nothing wrong with that.  ;-) 
 
You know he kind of looks a  like Peter Parker a little bit. Certainly has a geeky side to him.

As long as Zatanna is in it, it's ok for me.

Zatana is always welcome.  Did I imagine this or did I really see that shes getting her own series?

Being a total numbnut but Zatanna looks yummy-licious and Erica Durance is always gorgeous, esp. in that faux Wondie outfit.  Chloe's also cute.  Still not enough for me to watch this on a regular basis.  :(

That wonder woman costume is pretty cool.

The last Zatana episode was hillarious so I'm hoping for something along those lines, a funny follow up after the Jugernaut that was Absolute Justice, kind of gives the fans a little breather without letting too much momentum go.

I agree....it was a good episode and this is a good choice for a show after the JSA episode.....The show will continue to get stronger over this season and next...

Zatanna and Wonder Woman in an episode would be awesome...

 This could be an interesting lead for Smallville's Warrior Angel concept. I think I'll like it, but not as much as ABSOLUTE JUSTICE.

is it just me, or does this story have something familiar about it, let me explain

a kid equires super powers through magic, and his name is warrior angel. i don't know, it sounds alot like a reinvisioned captain marvel to me, and then the fact that he turns evil brings up the idea that they were also thinking of black adam. watch the trailer again and tell me you don't catch that

lol, I love Lois in the WW like outfit... 
 
Zatanna is hot mmm, she had the hots for Clark. Cool lol. Anywho, this show was alright. Not bad, kind of interesting and made sense given Zatanna's family history and powers.
