Previously we saw how the baby was placed into the rocket and launched. As the ship traveled, the baby has grown to a man.
Superman is somewhere in rural Indiana, flying over the countryside. Unseen below him are a man and his son, who are suddenly locked into a run away trolley car. It starts rolling, but suddenly the strange man flys from the sky, grabbing them and flying them to safety, just before the train car crashes. There is nothing strange to the man about flying through the sky. He does ask the man and boy to keep his presence secret. The man and son agree, and send the stranger to get a job at a news paper so he can learn the ways of men on this planet.
Elsewhere, Perry White is sitting on the biggest story of his life, but he’s short handed. Clark Kent enters to ask to become a reporter. All he asks is the chance to prove himself. Clark promises he can deliver on the big story that has just broke. Perry gives Clark the chance to get the job, but he has to get to the West coast, 2000 miles away, and he has to be there now. Planes are grounded, but Clark can’t wait, so when no one is watching, he flies out the window. Will he be in time? At the least his aledged fall from the 20 story building creates a stir in the newspaper office.
PS: Though this is nearly the same as the audition show, there are a few differences, one notable one is that the name of the villain has been changed from the generic, “McCray’ to the mor sinister, “the Wolf.’ There’s also some slight name changes in Perry White, and the Daily Planet. From here on out the audition and orgins of our superhero are left behind, and the series is all about our super friend becoming more acquainted with humans, and society. More importantly in his resolve to be the defender of justice, solving mysteries, and plain old having one adventure after another.
