Lois and Clark Tribute

Season One: Lois and Clark

Season One of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman introduces us to Clark Kent, a man that has seen the world and has many gifts, but has yet to find a way to use these gifts for fear of being ‘dissected like a frog.’ It isn’t until he lands a job at the Daily Planet working alongside famous investigative reporter, Lois Lane that he develops the disguise of Superman. His mother, Martha Kent makes the suit for him, and he makes his first appearance to the world at the launch of the Prometheus Space Station to stop a bomb planted by Lex Luthor. Clark struggles with the responsibilities of being a reporter and a superhero as he works with his partner and friend, Lois Lane to stop criminal entities in Metropolis while trying to meet deadlines. Clark knows Lex Luthor is behind a lot of the crimes in Metropolis but is unable to prove it.
 
What began as animosity and rivalry between the two reporters quickly develops into a mutual respect, friendship, and eventual partnership between Lois Lane and Clark Kent. Clark learns more about his heritage and where he comes from along with discovering a weakness he didn't know he had, Kryptonite.
 
Clark also struggles with jealousy as Lois Lane begins dating Lex Luthor. Knowing what Luthor is capable of but having no proof to back it up keeps Lois and Clark at odds with one another throughout the season. After Lex Luthor proposes in the two-part season finale, Clark admits his feelings for Lois, leaving her in a world of confusion. After she turns Clark down put turns to Superman, his alter-ego turns her down, sending her into the arms of his arch enemy. It isn't until the day of her wedding when all her friends are gone that Lois begins to have second thoughts about her feelings for Clark.
 
Meanwhile, Clark works with his editor, Perry White, and friend, Jimmy Olsen to bring Lex Luthor to justice, but Lex sets a trap for Superman. He traps him in a Kryptonite cage to kill him after his wedding to Lois Lane, taunting the man of steel about his marriage to her.  At the altar Lois admits she can't marry Lex just as Perry leads a team of officers to stop the wedding and arrest Lex Luthor.
