An invisible Robin Hood steals from the rich and gives to the poor. The authorities and the Daily Planet reporters have no leads, until Helen contacts them with a strange story: when she noticed her husband hadn’t eaten his dinner, she descended to his basement laboratory to find it empty – except that the door opened, and his voice said goodbye, and the door closed – and there was no one there! When Lois dismisses her she goes on television to plead for help, but instead, some else sees the message and realizes just how much real crime he could commit with an invisible suit... Meanwhile, Superman experiences growing fame – toys, dolls, balloons, and other merchandise, and has to decide how he’ll handle it.

Episode Notes

Episode Quotes
Linda Montoya: If you’re not seeing what I’m seeing, then you may be witnessing a miracle. Captured earlier today on home video, a catering truck loaded with fancy treats for a political fundraiser was hijacked an invisible man. Yes, an invisible man. That truck ended up at the Fourth Street Shelter here in downtown Metropolis where homeless families feasted on goose liver pâté and cold lobster salad.

Clark: Just because he's a little eccentric...
Lois: Eccentric?! Try "a taco short of a combo plate."

Lois: I hope you learned your lesson. There is no such thing as an invisible man.
Clark: (as he forlornly watches her leave) Yes, there is, Lois. Yes, there is...

Episode Goofs
The guns held by the bank robbers were invisible, despite the fact that they were not treated with the same coating as the suits. They became visible when the suits did.

Whatever Superman dropped on the robbers, it clearly wasn’t ordinary white phosphorus, despite the label on the bag. White phosphorous burns in air or water and must be stored in oil. White phosphorus injuries from tracer ammunition are among the most terrible wounds.
