Super Friends! “The Mysterious Moles” (part 5 of 8)

In town, the Dynamic Duo gives Aquaman and Wonder Woman a lift. It’s truly weird to see this; it makes the idea of an invisible jet actually seem pretty good. They notice Superman flying overhead towards the power plant, and Robin remarks that “It sure beats riding through traffic”… as they head down a completely empty street. I’m guessing Robin is unusually susceptible to road rage. Just a hunch.

Super Friends! "The Mysterious Moles" (part 5 of 8)

Superman arrives at the power plant and lands on the roof, an event helpfully described by our narrator. At this point, I think I’m just going to ignore Ted, since he’s basically doing what I’m doing right now, only minus the humor.

Superman talks out loud to himself (as the characters in this show are wont to do), expositing that he thinks the bad guys will try to move the cooling unit with a “crane-copter”. He plans to take to the sky to keep a lookout… but then he hunkers down behind the cooling unit to surprise them when they arrive.

Superman: Not only is he a dick, but he’s also one lazy mamma-jamma! He also tends to change shape when sitting.

Elsewhere, the giant drill is still approaching the surface. Trouble arises when it turns out Max forgot to turn the building around so that the house was facing the road before they left. Yeah, it’s a goof, but at the end of the day, can any of us say we haven’t done that at least once?
