Synopsis for "Superman's Forbidden Room"
Superman flies a bewildered Lois Lane out to his Fortress of Solitude. She is still in disbelief that he's finally revealed his true identity as being Superman and still wants to believe it is just a trick. When Superman picks up the key to open the door, Lois can't believe he just leaves the key lying around. When she attempts to pick up the key and it won't budge, Superman reveals it is made of a super-dense dwarf star and no one on the planet can pick it up besides him.
Lois takes a shower and preps in the Fortress still contemplating how Superman and Clark Kent could be the same person. Superman stops by and gives her a tour of the fortress including the Mirror of Truth, City of Kandor, Time Telescope, and a Sun-Eater. When Lois stumbles upon a room with replicas that look like her and Superman, she feels queasy as Superman tells her this room is off-limits. They have dinner together as he explains more about his past.
Lois retires to her room and psyches herself out as she thinks about what's happening in the hidden room and potential evil plans. She decides to grab the Kryptonite Laser she saw earlier. She stands outside of the off-limits room and blasts superman with the gun when he opens to door. They are both surprised that Superman's recent physical changes seem to have made him immune to Green Kryptonite. Superman escorts Lois in to his experiment room to reveal her birthday present. He's developed a Super-Serum that will allow Lois to have his powers for one day. He shows her a super suit he made for her.
