Synopsis for "Strange Visitor (From Another Planet)"
Lois Lane and Clark Kent are interrogated about Superman when government agents burst into the Daily Planet. After finding out that the warrants used in the interrogation are phony, Lois and Clark start digging and find that the head agent, Jason Trask, is a paranoid man who believes that Superman is the first of a race of aliens preparing to destroy the Earth. After sneaking in to Trask's hidden base, which is housed in an abandoned furniture warehouse, Clark discovers the ship that he arrived on Earth in housed among Trask's collection of specimens, and learns that Trask's group has files on his crash landing in Smallville. However, Clark and Lois are caught by Trask and his men, and are held captive.
Trask loads them into an airplane, and explains his plans. Believing that one or both of the reporters can contact Superman through a telepathic link, Trask plans to throw them out of an airplane at 20,000 ft. in hopes that they will summon Superman. As Lois is thrown out the door, Clark jumps after her, quickly changing into his Superman costume and saving her. After leaving her on a rooftop, Superman leaves, telling Lois he will rescue Clark, only to be struck by a missile from Trask's airplane.
Believing the missile to have killed Superman, Lois heartbrokenly returns to the Planet, while Trask and his men escape. Upon Clark's return to the Planet, Lois declares that Superman survived, and becomes overjoyed. She and Clark Return to Trask's warehouse with a S.W.A.T. team, only to find the warehouse stripped bare.
