Synopsis for "The Reporter of Steel!"

In prison, Lex Luthor has been savaging for parts to create two devices: A duplicate projector and a device to give people super powers just like Superman. Using the projector device to project a double of himself and the super-power ray outside of his prison cell to test it on a random person, Luthor happens upon Clark Kent and Lois Lane, he uses the device on Clark Kent to see if it will work, not knowing that Kent is secretly Superman and has super-powers anyway.

When Luthor exposes himself and reveals his plan, and his intention of using the device on himself once he learns that there are no adverse side effects he returns to his cell, his duplicate projector exploding upon his return. Clark comes up with a plan to make Luthor abandon using the device. This plot begins with Clark sending one of his Superman robots to act as Superman in his place, while he soaks up publicity being a super-powered Clark Kent. Clark then pretends to become a greedy miser using his super-powers to gain a vast material wealth. His exploits gain headlines that encourage Luthor that his device will be worth the trouble.

However, when Clark's powers "fade" he makes it appear as though the only side-effect of the super-power ray is that when the ray wears off the person who was granted the super-powers becomes very charitable, by giving all his money away to charity. Seeing this, Luthor believes that the device is a failure (at least for his intended purposes) and decides to scrap the idea.

Synopsis for "The Three Magic Wishes!"

When reading Fairy Tales to the young children of Midvale Orphanage, Linda Lee is interrupted by Tom Baxter, the resident trouble maker. Dismissing Fairy Tales as foolish, Tom begins to mock them in front of the children. Deciding that Baxter needs to be taught a lesson, Linda decides to handle this situation as Supergirl.

Creating as fairy costume, Supergirl bursts into the room in hopes of teaching Baxter a lesson, however Tom doesn't believe that Supergirl is really a fairy and thinks the whole display is a hoax. In order to prove Tom "wrong" Supergirl manages to complete a series of magical feats (really using her super-powers.) She manages to fly around the room (using her flight powers), make a magic mirror out of a window, change a rabbit into a horse and back again, and as a finally, she ties up Tom with unbreakable string (Really strands of her hair) and make it appear as though his nose grows when he lies.

Supergirl then uses hypnosis to make all the children think they dreamed the whole episode, and is satisfied when Baxter declines to hear the story of Pinocchio and is convinced the trouble maker will not interrupt story time again.
