Reviews for The Stolen Costume Part III
JannaKalderash chapter 1 . 1/30/2012
These two stories were nice follow ups to that particular episode.

They got what they deserved, trying to go down the mountain, after he specifically told them NOT TO!

The hepatitis was a nice touch; they probably would have died from that without medical treatment, even if they hadn't taken a header off of the mountain.

What other ideas do you have cooking?
SANDEFUR chapter 1 . 7/16/2011
A well written story, very true to the form of the show, still doesn't solve the legal issues. The fact is, Superman isolated Ace and Connie on that frozen mountaintop for his own personal reasons. He wasn't arresting them for their crimes, because he would have turned them over to the legal authorities. He wasn't isolating them because they carried a contagious disease - he didn't know about it, and if he had, then the correct response was to take them to a hospital for isolation and treatment. He kidnapped these people, and they, terrified they were abandoned, tried to get away before they died of hunger and exposure. (Yes, Supes wouldn't have done that but it doesn't excuse their deaths.) The TV show goofed pretty bad with the original episode and I can't think of a reasonable way out of it. (Except, maybe where they died was outside U.S. jurisdiction and the 'kidnapping' might be, by a long stretch, chalked up to a poor following of established arrest procedures? Certainly a sympathetic jury might vote that way.)

I've often wondered about the consequences of certain decisions Superman made in the show. Thanks for sharing the possibilities.
