I liked this story, but I have a couple of questions that are probably only answerable by the writer Cary Bates, and maybe not even by him. The ancient people who built Robrox left him in under what would become Metropolis “when Earth was still a molten mass.” Why would they care what might happen to Earth, when, if it was still a molten mass, it must have been entirely devoid of life? Also, how did Robrox seem to know: a) that Superman was about to use his heat vision to de-ice the plane’s wings, when he hadn’t yet seen Superman use heat vision, to even know he had such a power, let alone that he was about to use it?, and b) that using his heat vision would cause the death of all life on Earth? Talk about accurate predictions on the basis of NO data whatsoever!
I was glad to hear your dedication of this episode to Martin Pasko. He was one of my favorite writers of comic books, and I also enjoyed his writing for TV, particularly the episode “Happy Birthday, Buck!”, of Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.
