Amy Palmer, who had always trusted Clark, agreed to his plan
and flew with him into orbit to face Lex.
As they got closer to Lex, Clark prepared himself. Lex
was still shooting wildly in all directions. Clark would fly by Lex as
fast he could, getting Amy within 30 meters of Lex for
a few seconds. When they were close enough Amy would activate her kryptonite
ring which would power-down Lex's exoskeleton.
Clark began his flight. He
flew by in a matter of seconds. He then looked behind, wondering why Amy had
not said anything to him over her communicator. He then realized that Amy had
been shot in the heart by Lex.
Clark was devasted. His anger consumed him as he again flew Amy
within distance of Lex, and then activated the ring himself. But his anger did
not go away.
Lex, realizing what he himself had done, stared at Amy in disbelief. For one
moment Lex's madness subsided. Clark stared back at Lex
with hatred, his eyes burning red with fire. "Do it!",
Lex screamed, as Clark released his fury on Lex with his heat
vision, and Lex Luthor was destroyed. (Note: The photo on the left is actress AzuraSkye from the episode 'Shimmer')
