Cartoon Summary:

Lois Lane, Clark Kent and Perry White watch as an eccentric astronomer demonstrates his new invention- The Magnetic Telescope. It attracts a meteor toward Earth, but the experiment goes awry, and the trio can only watch in horror as fragments from space comes crashing down to Metropolis. After the destruction, city officials demand that the Professor stop doing his experiments with his magnetic telescope. The Scientist refuses to give in to the city's orders, instead proceeding with his plans to pull a comet from space. To stop him, the Metropolis police are forced to break into the astronomers power source, where they jam a crowbar into the generator and cut the power cables. Unfortunately, this does not stop the comet from continuing toward the Earth. With this impending doom literally hanging over her head, Lois calls the Daily Planet for help. Unable to get through- the lab's phone system is dead- Ms. Lane get's trapped by debris in the self-destructing lab. Clark sees the danger is coming, and changes into Superman. He is un successful in sending the comet back into space, so he returns to the lab where he removes the police's crowbar from the generator to start the power flowing again. Grabbing the cut cables, he splices them back together in his super grip. Reversing the power to the magnetic telescope, Superman repels the comet back into the void of space.
