Up in the sky. Look, look!
It's a bird.
It's a plane.
Faster than a speeding bullet. More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. This amazing stranger from the Planet Krypton, the Man of Steel - Superman. Possessing remarkable physical strength, Superman fights a never-ending battle for truth and justice disguised as a mild-mannered newspaper reporter, Clark Kent.
Penetrating deep into the throes and waste of the deep arctic plains, an archaeological expedition searching for a prehistoric fossil makes an amazing discovery - a huge monster, as life-like in its appearance as when it roamed the Earth millions of years ago in the Mesozoic age is found frozen in the ice in a state of perfect preservation. Constantly handicapped by the sub-zero elements, the scientist and their band of tireless workers succeed in removing the mammoth creature from the frozen pits. The ice-encased monster is loaded into the hulls of a huge freighter equipped with a special refrigeration plan and brought to this country. Here in a specially constructed wing of the Museum of Natural Science, this awe-inspiring creature is displayed to the public for the first time.
Do you mean to say that if the ice were permitted to thaw, there's the possibility that the monster might still be alive? Thank you, professor!
Lois, there's a new angle on that frozen monster story. Get over to the museum and see what's doing. They've got him in a special refrigerator.
Oh, Lois. Want me to go over there with you?
No thanks. You'd probably faint if you saw the monster. You scare so easily.
Maybe she's right, but Superman hasn't feinted yet.
...and produces the necessary refrigeration. The control board is downstairs. Let's do it. The entire plant is operated from this board. The thermometer must be watched constantly as any rise in temperature might prove dangerous.
CUT THE SWITCHES!
Boy, what a story.
Outside everybody. Step lively, please. Use the nearest exit. Please, folks, keep moving. We have to clear this room at once.
That's what he thinks.
Police Headquarters. Hello, Chief, send the riot squad. We're in trouble.
Hello, Planet. Give me the City Desk. Hurry!
Look out! It's alive!
No I'm not crazy. Rush some men down here.
Attention all cars. Proceed to Fifth and Main at once.
Chief! Lois is in the museum!
Better get over there Kent.
This looks like a job for Superman.
You better get back to your office where you'll be safe. I've got some work to do.
Yes, sir. And miss the best story in years? No chance.
Now this time, stay put.
Yes, m'Lord, and thanks.
You showed plenty of courage getting that monster story, Lois.
Thanks, but where were you?
Me, oh, I must have fainted.
