Now dressed in his Emo Blur outfit, Clark pushes a truck through a fence and out into the street to block the speeding cyclist's path. Luckily for the truck's owner and his insurance company, the cyclist screeches to a stop before crashing into anything. The rider of the pretty little red Ducati pulls off his helmet. It's Oliver, naturally, and he looks annoyed. He sees Clark and calls him the "King of buzzkill." Clark doesn't retort that Oliver is the Duke of Douchebaggery, but he's probably thinking it. Oliver has a dumb, awkwardly phrased line about Clark and his pet rock at a barbecue, meaning the fight with Doomsday. A barbecue would have more fire. "I had my money on Doomsday," Oliver snarks. Clark thinks Oliver is trying to play it off as a joke, but says he knows the loss of Jimmy affected them both. Oliver says he thinks that God's got a sick sense of humor. Don't be starting any blasphemous rumors, Ollie! Oliver apologizes for taking godly Clark's name in vain. Clark says he should have listened to Oliver and gotten rid of Davis instead of believing in him. That seems like the wrong lesson to take away from all that, but moral dilemmas are just going to slow us down. Speaking of slowing down, where are the cops in this "high speed chase"? They go back and forth about what they're supposed to do and Oliver sounds bitter about being a "mere mortal." Clark says Oliver is meant for more than this. Oliver wonders, as I did, what the "S" stands for. "It gives people hope," Clark says. Yes, they hope to know what it stands for one day. Oliver gets after Clark for his superiority and accuses him of wanting to be worshipped like a "modern Jesus." Is that anything like a personal Jesus? Oliver gets back on his bike and speeds off. Finally a single cop car shows up to chase after him. Clark watches with a tiny frown.
