On the episode "S" Cape from Planet Earth / The X-Mentalist, Lena received an SOS call from The Dark Planet that an alien requires help for them. However, Scorch needed to figure out what alien which is in trouble but instead she revealed a non-alien super hero called Superman from the DC Comics series. Scorch claimed that Superman was in danger and called him an alien from planet Krypton and he was there to rescue him. Although Superman saved Lois from falling off the winged lion-like sculpture of the building, Scorch didn't save her yet but Superman didn't need his help to rescue Lois. However, Jimmy's tie accidently got stuck in the type-writer leaving him no choice to call Superman for help, Superman got into the building for help and Scorch keeps annoying Superman that he's potentially going to help Superman. He gets grossed out and starts to vomit through the window. Jimmy was upset that Superman made him ruin his tie. Superman didn't want help from Scorch, but he pronounced Scorch "Scooch". Scorch jumped out of the window for another person who had it's purse stolen from the old woman, Jimmy recognized Scorch was an alien and he said that he's an infamous photographer. While Superman was sick, he landed after launching to go after the theif. The woman was surprised at Scorch, Superman wanted to be left alone from Scorch after he came from Planet Baab. He grabbed the Kryptonite crystal from his suit which was given to Scorch by Lena. Superman vomits again with the crystal on his hand. Superman knew Lex was planting the Kryptonite in Scorch. He knocked him down through the floor. Lena informed Scorch how Lex was working with her and she promised he told her how lost ended.

The episode premiered on May 27, 2013.


Lena Thackleman: (Via Hologram) Scorch, I've received an SOS from The Dark Planet. It appears an alien on earth needs our help.

Scorch Supernova: Well, since we're not from earth, technically everyone on earth is an alien to us, you know?

Lena Thackleman: Just get moving!

Scorch Supernova: But how will I know which alien needs help?

Lena Thackleman: You'll recognize him... by this.

Scorch Supernova: You are in danger. You're an alien from the planet Krypton and I'm here to save you.

Superman: What, I'm fine and and who are you?

Scorch Supernova: You're not fine and I'm Scorch.

Lois Lane: Help! [shrieking] Thank you.

Superman: I don't need any save--(Coughing)--saving.

Scorch Supernova: Aha, see that?
