Cartoon Summary:

A vindictive Native American scientist visits The Daily Planet's editorial offices to ask the paper to print a request for the city officials to return the city of Metropolis and its main borough, Manhattan, to his people. Mr. White and his staff refuse to print such a request and ask the scientist to leave. Angered, he tells them that their refusal to help him regain Metropolis for his people will only result in the destruction of the city. Perry White shrugs off the scientist's threats, seeing him as nothing more than a harmless kook. But Clark Kent and Lois Lane believe that this man is very dangerous, and Ms. Lane's penchant for getting into trouble takes holds once again. She follows the scientist to his undersea lab, where he sets off his electronic devices. He creates a series of artificial electronic earthquakes. Superman flies down under the city's bay, destroys the electronic systems and captures the mad scientist. Later, after reading her banner headlines on the deck of the Metropolis Ferry, Clark gives Lois his approval of her latest scoop.
