React: Is Jay-Z's comeback a good idea?

Lil' Bow Wow takes on Superman
Lil' Bow Wow -- he'll always be little to us -- guest starred on The CW's "Smallville" on Thursday night as a villain that battled Tom Welling's young Superman. Bow Wow played "Baern," a phantom that had been banished by Superman's father, Jor-El, to Krypton's version of a prison, called "The Phantom Zone." Superman, who only appears on the show as his alter ego, Clark Kent, had unknowingly released many of the prisoners during his own escape on a previous episode. During Thursday's show, Bow Wow tracked down Kent -- a.k.a. Kal-El -- and killed one of his fellow Kryptonians before being defeated. His character survived because the phantom had only used Bow Wow's body as a host. Bow Wow, whose previous screen credits include "Roll Bounce," "Johnson Family Vacation" and "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift," was also credited as a sponsor for the show, which promoted his latest album.
