Synopsis
On Earth-2 in the 1950's, Colonel Future teams with The Wizard to make Superman cease to exist. Clark Kent, with no memory of his career as Superman, continues the fight against crime as a crusading reporter. His new boldness attracts the attention of Lois, and they marry. When Clark does not realize that Captain Future’s gang has made an attempt on his life, Lois begins to suspect again that Clark is Superman. She seeks out the Wizard, who had claimed responsibility for Superman's disappearance. The Wizard restores Superman, who resumes his career, and re-affirms his marriage vows with Lois.
