Super Rabbit is the 52nd episode of The Looney Tunes Show and the season two finale.

Plot

Daffy needs to sell some stuff to buy Tina a birthday gift. He decides to sell a carrot jewel that belonged to Bugs. Daffy asks Bugs why he wants to keep it. Bugs tells Daffy that he's not an Earthling nor is name really Bugs, it's Kalel and that he's from the planet Crypton (with a C not a K). He also tells him he's really Super Rabbit, former hero of Metropolis. 

In the flashback, Bugs explains that he used to be a superhero and that he fought supervillains from near and far. Super Rabbit enjoys his life as a superhero; the praises, the parades, the celebrations, and the attention. 

One day, Super Rabbit battles a villain named "Braniac" and foils his plan to shrink Metropolis and turn it into a tiny town.

The next night, Super Rabbit is attending a party the citizens are throwing for him, when Lex Luthor interrupts and wrecks havoc. Super Rabbit removes his robotic suit and swings it out into outer space, which proves to be a big mistake.

Many years ago on Crypton, Super Rabbit's father, Jor-El banished an evil villain known as General Zod and his evil minions, Faora and Thunkian . Zod vows to destroy Super Rabbit and rule the universe.

Thanks to Super Rabbit's carelessness, the villains are freed from their evil prison and are given superpowers and go down to Metropolis to get rid of Super Rabbit.

On Earth, the citizens are throwing Super Rabbit a parade when all of a sudden, Zod and his cronies arrive and easily beat Super Rabbit. Super Rabbit surrenders to Zod and the general takes over Metropolis.

Depressed, Super Rabbit goes to see his father in the Arctic for advice. Jor-El tells his son that he desereved to lose because he has lost his way and he brought this on himself for showboating. Super Rabbit points that he keeps Metropolis safe, but Jor-El retorts by telling his so. that he is the real reason there are so many villains in Metropolis. Super Rabbit realizes what he has done and now he must find a way to stop Zod by getting rid of Faora and the robot by using his brain.

Super Rabbit dresses up as a reporter, but Zod and Faora are not fooled by the disguise. Faora tries to kill Super Rabbit but he convinces Faora to leave Zod and he does the same for Thunkian. Now, Zod is on his own and battles Super Rabbit on his own and is defeated. Super Rabbits traps Zod, Faora, and Thunkian in a new prison and they leave Earth forever. Kalel also quits being a superhero because he has learned that power corrupts unless it's tampered by humility.

It is implied that Bugs made up this entire story to distract Daffy from his true secret identity of Bat Rabbit, as shown at the end of the episode.
