"The Perks of Not Being a Wallflower" is the thrird episode of The CW series Superman & Lois. The episode was written by Michael Narducci and directed by James Bamford. It was first broadcast on March 16, 2021, on The CW and HBO Max. The show is a spin-off from Supergirl where many characters of Superman & Lois were introduced during its second season.

Plot[edit]

After being pushed around too many times by Sean and his friends, Jordan decides to push back by joining the team, gaining the respect of the coach and his new teammates. Clark is worried that doing so will reveal his powers, but Jonathan convinces him otherwise. Clark allows Jordan to join the team, and takes a job as the school's assistant coach. Sarah breaks up with Sean and quits the cheerleading team after an argument with her mother. However, Lana and Sarah eventually make up after the former reveals the dysfunctional state of their family, like her father sleeping on the couch, Sophie picking on the kids in her class, and Lana abusing sleeping medication.

Lois finds a woman named Sharon Powell to talk to regarding Morgan Edge's previous dealings that involved her son Derek. "Subjekt-11", a man with super-strength that rivals Superman's, ambushes Lois when she goes to meet with Sharon, but Superman saves them both. Subjekt-11 is later trying to leave town while asking Morgan on the phone what Larr's going to do to clean up the incident. Morgan's personal assistant Leslie Larr appears in the road and uses her heat vision to kill him. She calls up Morgan and tells him "It's done. I'll call a team".
