Ron was the one who wrote an article about the good samaritan that had began to save people in the city. Two years later Ron was at the basement of the Daily Planet when Lois Lane, while trying to make Clark Kent more clumsy and forgettable, makes Clark bump into Ron, who scolded him for not paying attention when walking.
