Storyline

Inspector Henderson believes that Paul Barton, a criminal who's guilty of practically every crime known who disappeared nearly seven years ago, is hiding inside a cube-like structure which is made of some material that is impenetrable. He goes to the Planet to air his concern. It seems that by law if a person's been missing for seven years -- which period will be reached in 24 hours -- he is to be declared legally dead. And a dead man can't be arrested. So Clark turns into Superman and tries to get into the cube, but not even he can get in. So he goes to a scientist for help. Barton's brother, who's been keeping an eye on things for Barton, is worried that Superman might find a way in, so he grabs Lois and Jimmy. The scientist postulates that Superman might be able to alter his molecules so that he would be able to pass through anything solid; but he is warned that since the cube is made of an unknown material, he might not get out again. When Superman tries to get through, he learns ... Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Another Adventure Stretching Physics
15 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I guess we can cut Superman some slack since he is quite an unknown quantity. In a previous episode, through will, he was able to split himself in two, creating a weakened, though identical double. In this one a criminal with an incredible history of evil deeds has locked himself in an impregnable cube, made of a totally resilient alloy. He has been holed up in there for seven years, and at noon on a particular day, he will be declared legally dead and can leave a free man (all crimes will no longer be punishable). His brother and his idiot partner wait on the outside. Every effort has been made to crush the walls of the cube but to no avail. Even Superman has tried to blast through but has failed. Then Superman goes to his physicist friend and is again able to manipulate his molecules and pass through the wall. The kicker is that our friends, Lois and Jimmy are being held hostage, tied up, and some gas like cyanide is set to be activated should the Man of Steel intervene. It's a big problem, but eventually it's taken to the Navy. This is a clever episode once you suspend disbelief, and the conclusion is pretty satisfying.
