Smarter Than a Speeding Bullet is an episode.
Comet Guy, failure superhero has come from another planet to retrieve superhero training. Steelbeak directs the theft of masses of rubber to construct a destructive F.O.W.L. device - the F.O.W.L. ball.
"You can't make an omelet without pounding the living daylights out of a few eggs!"
— Comet Guy
"Take it easy! No fires, no tornadoes, no ice. Easy on the catastrophe, OK? Understand? Comprendo? Capeesh?"
"I promise, absolutely no capeeshing."
— Darkwing and Comet Guy have a minor communication hiccup.
This episode marks the first appearance of Comet Guy.
After Launchpad and DW burst into Steelbeak's hideout, for a brief instance DW's mask becomes feather-colored as he lunges into action.
When Comet Guy dances past the others, they're suddenly all clean after being covered in soot from the explosion. In Steel Beak's close-up, his jacket has little patches of soot again.
