Synopsis for "3-2-1 Action! (Part III of III) - Pal"
Jimmy tears open Clark's shirt and tells his friend that he knows he's Superman. Jimmy tells him that he just suddenly knew. Then Jimmy proceeds to tell him how he helped against the Kryptonite Man. The Kryptonite Man had Superman incapacitated when Jimmy used his signal watch and Krypto arrived. Krypto attacked the Kryptonite Man while Jimmy developed solar powers to heal Superman. Recovered, Superman attacked the Kryptonite Man and used a chunk of lead glass to reflect his radiation back at him. The Kryptonite Man overloaded and melted down into the building foundation. Outside, Jimmy rushed to change into his street clothes and get Krypto, sick from the radiation, to safety.
In the present, Jimmy tells Clark that Krypto is doing well and resting at his apartment. Jimmy tells Clark he wants to join the Justice League to get help with his powers, and as Superman flies away he agrees that it's a good idea.
The next day Jimmy is playing with Krypto when suddenly the dog gets excited. Heading out, they find the giant gorilla is attacking the park. Krypto fights him for a few moments, before Jimmy uses his powers to grow to the gorilla's size. Jimmy prepares to punch him, when he realizes that he doesn't need to fight. He calms the monkey and he shrinks down to normal size. Superman and Jimmy turn the monkey over to S.T.A.R. Labs.
Superman goes to meet Krypto, but when he tries to bring him back with him the dog cries. Superman realizes that Krypto has always been happiest around young people, so he'll let him stay with Jimmy. As Jimmy takes Krypto for a walk, he thinks that this is the start of a beautiful friendship.
