Synopsis for "Smart Men, Foolish Choices"
The recently mutated villain known as Blockbuster arrives in the town of Manchester, Alabama and sets about wreaking as much havoc as possible. He assigns his personal henchmen, the Jerky Boys, to detonate a bomb secured to a blimp passing over Warrior Stadium. The bomb explodes and the crowd erupts into a panic. Impulse races onto the scene, and saves as many people as possible.
From afar, Blockbuster watches everything on a monitor screen from an office sanctuary. He predicted that Impulse would show up, and decides to establish his first official criminal foothold in Manchester by taking down the city's resident hero.
Impulse encounters Blockbuster in the middle of a bustling highway in the city's downtown district. Blockbuster's men open fire on the young hero, but Impulse's super-speed easily evades the bullets. Using his vibration powers, he deflects many shots that would have otherwise struck innocent pedestrians.
Impulse chases Blockbuster back to his factory headquarters and attacks him directly. Blockbuster flies into a rage and begins tearing through everything in sight. Impulse manipulates Blockbuster into ramming the support struts of the building, causing the entire edifice to come crashing down upon him. Impulse zips away to safety leaving Blockbuster buried beneath a ton of debris.
- There is a movie house shown in downtown Manchester with a marquis for Batman Forever.
