Synopsis for "Pilot"
Fresh off the bus from Smallville, Clark Kent arrives in Metropolis, seeking a job at the Daily Planet. After a bit of convincing, Perry White decides to hire him. White pairs him with veteran reporter Lois Lane. Meanwhile, scientist Samuel Platt tells Lois that the Prometheus space project, a project to build a zero-gravity science lab in space, is being sabotage. While the pair investigate Platt's claims, Platt apparently commits suicide, although Lois & Clark believe that it is murder, and that the culprit is Platt's former co-worker Toni Baines. Unbeknownst to Lois or Clark, Baines is actually working with billionaire business mogul Lex Luthor, who hopes to sabotage the space project for personal gain.
After Baines is killed in an explosion, the threat to the space project is believed over. A launch to the space station is planned, but at the last second, Lois, who has snuck aboard, discovers a bomb on the ship. Clark rushes to the launch site, in the guise of Superman, and swallows the explosive, saving the ship. After (literally) sweeping Lois off her feet, Superman visits Lex Luthor, and informs Luthor that he is fully aware of Luthor's involvement. Luthor seems unphased, but welcomes Superman's threat that he will place Luthor in jail before Superman flies away.
