Tuesday night's episode of Superman & Lois, "The Thing in the Mines" was a big one. With Clark Kent/Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) having been experiencing painful episodes and "visions" since the season premiere that were only getting worse and with showrunner Todd Helbing having previously confirmed the full reveal of a certain major villain, fans tuned in ready to see exactly what the thing in the mines—the thing causing Superman all the problems—make its debut. But the episode gave fans way more than they bargained for and they have a lot to say about it.
Warning: spoilers beyond this point for this week's episode of Superman & Lois, "The Thing in the Mines".
In the episode, a monstrous figure in a green suit blasts its way out of the mines and begins attacking Superman. With its bulky, full-body suit and the cables and mechanisms on it, the suit was a reasonably close match for the early appearances of Doomsday, the creature that killed Superman. However, it was soon revealed that the creature in the suit wasn't Doomsday at all. Instead, it's Bizarro, a twisted doppelganger of Superman who is definitely not Doomsday. The reveal was a big surprise for Superman & Lois fans and they've lit up social media with their reaction to the reveal. For most, it was the excitement that it's Bizarro and not Doomsday, but for others, it's the twist itself, though not everyone is especially impressed, with some noting how the show continuously teases one thing only to deliver something else.
No matter the reaction, Bizarro has Superman & Lois fans talking. You can read on to see what they have to say and be sure to let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Superman & Lois airs on Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.

I love how they made everyone think we were getting Doomsday, but then for it to turn out to be Bizarro Superman, which is even cooler imo. Can't remember that ever being done in live action but I could be wrong. #SupermanAndLois— TwinSkiesDJ (@TwinskiesDj) January 26, 2022
It's not Doomsday, it's Bizarro?
Eff it. I'm invested. #SupermanAndLois— viи·cəиt (@thejerseymonk) January 26, 2022
No one is who they're supposed to be
#SupermanandLois gave us a Luthor in S1 that turned out to be John Henry Irons a.k.a Steele, a Morgan Edge that turned out to be Superman's half-brother.
And now they made us believe Doomsday was coming, they give us Bizarro instead.
They like to **** with us, don't they?— Eric Draven (@William06459490) January 26, 2022
