Lois Lane (Phyllis Coates) runs across a pair of mysterious men who are going around Metropolis, purchasing cheap plaster statuettes at various gift shops and then smashing them. Intrigued by their bizarre behavior and positive that there's a story behind it somewhere, she enlists the help of Clark Kent (George Reeves) to see what they're up to and even gets ahead of them, purchasing some of the statues herself and smashing them, whereupon she discovers some small, seemingly meaningless objects inside. But before she can figure out what it all means, she's kidnapped out of her own apartment. Kent and Inspector Henderson (Robert Shayne) are positive that notorious international criminal Paul Martin (Tris Coffin) is behind the kidnapping and the plot, but can't get a lead on his whereabouts, or the meaning of it all. Inspector Henderson is slowly sweating the truth out of one of Martin's henchmen, but it looks as though only Superman can help Miss Lane, if he can find out where she's being held.
