There are no volcanoes near the great city of Metropolis, but when word comes that a long-dormant volcano in the South Pacific is headed for a cataclysmic eruption, Daily Planet editor Perry White quickly dispatches ace reporters Lois Lane and Clark Kent to cover the big event. White hopes that the two rivals can put aside their differences and work in tandem, but Lois is not about to give away her chance at a solo byline on a story as big as this. She slyly purloins Clark's press pass. While he goes through the red tape of acquiring another, she takes off for where the action is. And there's a lot of action, as the volcano has entered into its full-strength convulsions. Lois finds herself in mortal danger, trapped aboard an overhead tram, the cables of which are breaking. Meanwhile, Clark has seen that the volcano has blown its top and changes into Superman. The Man of Steel uses his incredible strength and ingenuity to force the lava flow into the sea and away from populated areas, then manages to save Lois and the cable car in the nick of time.
