Did they really use to have such a thing as candy glasses? And here I thought I was cool, pretending to eat a real cigarette. Imagine how awesome it would have been to start chewing absent-mindedly on my glasses and then -- as my friends looked on amazed -- gobble them up entirely.

I'm actually a bit more disturbed by the display behind Clark that says, "Amaze Your Friends," and features an assortment of handguns! Don't tell me...licorice? Although that could have been fun, too. "I swear, Mom, if you make me take another piano lesson, I'm going to eat my gun!"

It explained it well until someone on staff woke up and realized if X-Ray Vision was melting glass, why wasn't it burning a hole in everything between Clark and the escaping lion? And if he could control the intensity to merely look thru the brick walls, why couldn't he control it not to melt the glass?

And thus was born Heat Vision.

It's a shame young, inexperienced Clark didn't think of the method devised in "Lois & Clark" on television. He lowered his glasses to the bridge of his nose and peered over them to use his X-Ray Vision. A visual bit business for TV that was carried on into the "Adventures of Superman" cartoons.
