2013-05-14 02:32:34 mikebo Synopsis Superman takes a businessman named Glenmorgan hostage and threatens to throw him down from the balcony of a building unless he confessess his crimes. The police surround the building and threaten to shoot Superman, but he simply throws himself and Glenmorgan from the balcony. However, Superman uses his powers to land safely with Glenmorgan, who finally confesses his crimes. Despite this, the cops shoot Superman, but the bullets harmlessly bounce off him. Superman then escapes the police, but not before telling Detective Blake, the officer in charge, about an ulcer his x-ray vision detected in his body.
General Sam Lane and Lex Luthor watch Superman's activities from a military base. Lane hired Luthor to capture Superman.
Meanwhile, Superman is running across Metropolis when he hears some people in danger with his super-hearing. A demolition crew is about to tear down Galileo Square however, its buildings are still full of people. Superman manages to stop the wrecking ball, allowing the people to escape. Suddenly, several military tanks appear in the square and trap Superman with an electrical net. But Superman breaks the net and uses the wrecking ball to break down the tank. Another tank appears and fires on Superman, but before the tank can fire again, the people Superman rescued help him get back up and threaten to attack the military. The police then send remote-controlled helicopters to attack Superman, but he escapes.
Superman arrives at the rooftop of his apartment building and changes to Clark Kent. Suddenly, Mrs. Nyxly, his landlady, comes to the rooftop. She asks about his injuries, and Clark tells her that he was injured when he wrote a story about Intergang's influence on the dock unions. They walk to Clark's apartment, where Clark pays the rent. Mrs. Nyxly leaves, while Clark calls Jimmy Olsen on his cellphone.
Jimmy, who is with Lois Lane in the subway, receives his call, and Clark tells him not to get on any train, as they were all sabotaged by Glenmorgan. However, Lois ignores Clark's message, as Clark works for a rival of the Daily Planet. Lois and Jimmy get in the train capture a criminal called "Guns" Grundig. Suddenly, the train increases its speed, just as Grundig pulls out his guns. Superman stops the train with his bare hands, and the sudden stop allows the passengers to take Grundig down.
In the base, General Lane and Luthor watch the train incident. Although Lane is upset that Luthor put his daughter's life at stake, Luthor justifies this by saying that they managed to capture Superman.
Although Superman manages to stop the train, the effort leaves him unconscious and pinned to a wall by the train's nose, allowing the police to capture him.
