Synopsis
General Lane tells his daughter that Superman is an alien. Luthor manages to save Corben by surgically changing him into Metallo. Superman continues fighting the army, but then Metallo attacks. With Jimmy's help, Lois escapes from the Planet, and finds Superman, encouraging him, and recognizing Corben as Metallo. Metallo is finally defeated; General Lane tries to have Superman arrested, but the people, whom Superman was trying to protect, defend him. Luthor is upset at all this, especially when the crowds no longer come to him; instead, they are looking up in the sky for Superman.
