Diana Stride, a top television journalist, decides she wants to find out Superman's secrets - like who are the women in his life and is he really Clark Kent.
20 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Diana Stride, a top television journalist, decides she wants to find out Superman's secrets - like who are the women in his life and is he really Clark Kent.

Beginning by throwing herself off a building, Diana Stride decides to make life difficult for Superman. By doing it, she also makes life difficult for Clark Kent, who is in the middle of a pivotal conversation with Lois about whether or not they should date, not to mention a chess game with her. She tags Superman with a tracking device and follows it to the Daily Planet, where she finds...only Superman himself. Changing tactics, she tells everyone she is doing a tribute to Superman and wants to interview everyone at the Daily Planet, especially Lois, Perry and Clark.

Before long she is convinced that Superman and Clark Kent are one and the same. She also finds out that Superman is vulnerable to Kryptonite. She's able to obtain some, largely because it turns out she is a former assassin for Intergang! She has them grind it up and put it into a special lipstick. She kisses Superman, who then swallows the Kryptonite and proceeds to get very sick.

When another visit to the Daily Planet with her tracking device prompts Clark to leave, he ends up on his couch, getting ever sicker. Over the phone, his parents urge him to go to the hospital. He agrees to go, but decides that he should go as Superman. Unfortunately, while he is changing his clothes, Diana Stride and her cameraman are outside his window and see it! Superman collapses on the floor before getting out the door, but Lois shows up and gets him to the hospital. The doctor says there is not much they can do, as it is spreading like a cancer. He suggests that they would use radiation therapy for cancer, so Superman decides that he needs a bigger dose than most and finds the nearest nuclear power plant.

Meanwhile, Diana and her cameraman search Clark's apartment and find the hidden compartment in his closet where he keeps his Superman suits. Diana films it and broadcasts it on TV. All the staff from the Daily Planet see it, including Lois, Perry and Jimmy. Jimmy and Perry don't believe it, although Jimmy points out that they do look a lot a like. Lois, however, simply looks shocked and has nothing to say.

A few minutes after the broadcast, Clark arrives to a crowd of newspaper staff all staring at him. He proceeds downstairs to a prearranged press conference where he begins to dispute the claim, only to have Superman fly in and take over the telling. The explanation, and the fact that they are both there at the same time, convince everyone, or almost everyone, that he is not Superman. However, the telemetry on the laser that his parents are using to project Superman is not completely straight, and it appears that Lois may have noticed.
