This week: 305: Supermobile - The artists meet McKenzie at the historic Bronson Caves, the site of the original Bat Cave and numerous iconic Hollywood films. They then are met by a parade of unique vehicles and learn that for their next Spotlight Challenge, they will be paired in teams of two and tasked with creating an original superhero and sidekick duo that would match the vehicle of their choice. Season two winner Rayce Bird joins the cat and helps them with their designs. Over the next two days, the teams work furiously to create their superhero-sidekick duos. On the Face Off reveal stage, the artists are thrilled to see their guest judge, writer, director and superhero aficionado, Kevin Smith.
