For over a year, artist and self-styled mystic Mme. Selena (Myra McKinney) has been holding the city of Metropolis in thrall with her predictions -- she announces a new "vision" to an audience of VIPs and press at her wax museum, and unveils the wax sculpture of the man that she predicts will die within the next six months; and five men predicted to die have apparently done so. Clark Kent (George Reeves), Lois Lane (Phyllis Coates), and Perry White (John Hamilton) of the Daily Planet decide to investigate, and discover that her latest "vision" and sculpture are of... Perry White. When White turns up missing, an apparent victim of suicide, the reporters must overcome their grief to continue working on the story -- soon, Lois has uncovered a darker, more horrible side to Mme. Selena's life and work than anyone could have imagined. It's also a discovery that may well get her killed, unless Superman can figure out what's going on and where she's being held before it's too late.
