Superman: obsession

I just watched the episode “Obsession” of Superman TAS,and when the robot kangaroo puts the supermodel in his “pouch”,I wondered why Supes’ response is to bodyslam it. The girl gets out unharmed,and later we find out she’s a robot herself,but did Supes know she was a robot?

Bruce Timm’s Superman has long struck me as one of the Man of Tomorrow’s less-bright incarnations, so he may have been reckless there. Then again, he does have X-ray vision, so perhaps he has an excuse…this time.

Good point,maybe he saw her robot innards

Of course , we’ll avoid the creep factor of Superman using his X-ray vision to see beneath the clothes of a supermodel in the first place. Lois would not be happy.
