Smallville: Absolute Justice Was Full of Geek Greatness!

I can't help but think what a great job Geoff Johns did writing Smallville's most recent two episodes. It was absolutely full of Easter Eggs.

Everything from references to the Super friends, the troubalert, the Golden Age to the Silver Age (terms used to designate the change of Super Hero costumes and back stories) Golden Age events generally took place from the late 30's to late 40's and the Golden Age is a reference from 1956 to 1970.

Something else I thought was a nice touch was the addition of the original Red Tornado, Abigail Hunkel, was genius (although I did not know that there was a Golden Age version of the character until now). You can see a photo of the character below.

The character was actually very popular back in her day and was in the first adventure of the Justice Society of America, having a cameo and attempting to apply for membership into the JSA. Although she split her pants and she had to leave before completing her application the JSA made her an honorary member.

I would love to see more episodes like this, but I know budget restraints prevent that from happening. Also, the show is primarily about Superman, not the Justice League.

So what did everyone else think? Did you like the episodes? Let's hear from you.
