Moving to Metropolis, Clark becomes a reporter at the Daily Planet – and a rival of star journalist Lois Lane. He also arouses the ire of billionaire Lex Luthor, who may have more to do with the theft of a powerful battlesuit than he’s saying. It’s up to Kent’s alter-ego Superman to battle ruthless terrorists and keep Luthor from unleashing his ultimate weapon.
