In this sequel to the second-season episode "Panic in the Sky", Clark Kent's friend Gary Allen (Robert Lowery) has been missing ever since the night Kent's alter ego Superman (George Reeves) prevented a huge meteor from crashing into Metropolis. When Gary resurfaces, he is just as invulnerable and indestructible as Superman, the result of being exposed to the meteor's radiation. In fact, the public at large is now convinced that Gary and Superman are one and the same, especially since he, like Superman, is weakened whenever coming into contact with Kryptonite. This situation is exploited by a pair of crooks named Van Wyck (Steven Geray) and Rufus (Bob Foulk), with potentially dire consequences for Clark's fellow reporters Lois (Noel Neill) and Jimmy (Jack Larson).
