- Look at the sky! Look! - It's a bird! - It's a plane! It's Superman! In the endless reaches of the universe... ... there once existed a planet known as Krypton. A planet that burned like a green star in the distant heavens. Their civilization was far advanced, and it brought forth a race of superman... ...whose mental and physical powers were developed... the absolute peak of human perfection. But there came day when giant quakes threatened to destroy Krypton forever. One of the planet's leading scientists, sensing the approach of doom... ...placed his infant son in a small rocket ship... ...and sent it hurtling in the direction of the Earth just as Krypton exploded. The rocket ship sped through star-studded space... ...landing safely on Earth with its precious burden... ...Krypton's sole survivor. A passing motorist found the uninjured child and took it to an orphanage. As the years went by, and the child grew to maturity... ...he found himself possessed of amazing physical powers. Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings at a single bound. The infant of Krypton is now the Man of Steel... ...Superman. To best be in a position to use his amazing powers... a never-ending battle for true justice... ...Superman has assumed disguise of Clark Kent... ...mild-mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper. Kent, I wanna see you. Just received another threatening note. Okay. Mr. White. Lois, another note from the Mad Scientist. Coming in, chief. Now, listen to this warning. He plans to strike tonight. "Beware, you fools. My Electrothanasia-Ray strikes tonight at 12. Total destruction will come to those who laughed at me... ...and failed to heed my warning. Beware, I strike at midnight." This nut may prove dangerous. Kent, you help Lois follow up her lead. - She may have an angle on this thing. - Yes, sir. But, chief, I'd like the chance to crack the story on my own. - Well, now-- - Thanks, chief. But, Lois... Chief, don't you think that's a dangerous mission? The hour has come. I'm a reporter for the-- So you want a story? I'll give you the greatest story of destruction... ...the world has ever known. How is that for a story, Miss Lane? Flash. True to his threat, the Mad Scientist... ...whose warnings have held the city in a grip of terror... ...went on his rampage of destruction on the stroke of midnight. The deadly impact of his mysterious ray smashed the famous Tower Bridge... ...hurling cars and pedestrians into the river below. The police have warned everyone to remain in their homes. This looks like a job for Superman. It's Superman. I don't believe it. He isn't human. Congratulations, Lois, that was a great scoop. Yes, chief, thanks to Superman. Captioned by Grantman Brown
