Superman [as Clark Kent only]; Lois Lane; Jimmy Olsen; Lex Luthor; Perry White; Kryptonite Man [Dr. K Russell Abernathy] (intro); Supergirl [Kara Zor-El]; Jor-El (actor); Lara (actor)
A spaceship lands on Earth 68 years ago. Lois, Clark, and Jimmy watch "Superman: A Retrospective" in Metropolis Park, commenting on how the makers got several things wrong. Luthor gets cleared of all charges, but the people have lost respect for him, and he resents it, holding up a crystal (the sunstone). Perry White praises Clark's work over the last year. Dr. Abernathy experiments with Kryptonite on animals; one breaks away and causes an explosion that turns Abernathy into a Kryptonite Man. Clark finds a quiet corner, but instead of changing to Superman, sets off a signal watch that summons Supergirl, who defeats the Kryptonite Man. A couple of Luthor's goons grab Clark and take him to Luthor, who tells him "No more stories", and threatens Lois. Clark tells him "You're finished", as Luthor punches him out and kicks him down. Luthor and his goons leave a bloodied Clark behind, who has obviously lost his powers.
