Synopsis for "Kiss Kiss Fall in Portal"

Clark, having decided to be completely honest with Lois and Jimmy, takes his friends to the mysterious platform buried underneath his parents' farm. Jimmy, having deduced that the platform is actually a component of a spaceship, plays around with the ship's obelisks, while Clark asks Lois on a date as a way to make up for lying to her.

The next day, at the Kent-Olsen apartment, Jimmy finds Clark planning his date with Lois down to the smallest detail. Unnerved by his best friend's obsession, Jimmy goes to Lois' apartment, hoping to find some peace and tranquility. Instead, he finds Lois planning an investigation into Clark's past. She tells Jimmy that, as a way to thank Clark for all the times he has helped her, she will help him discover where he came from.

While Jimmy helps Lois pick up her dress from the laundromat, Clark gets an unexpected visit from a small, blue-skinned man. He introduces himself as Mr. Mxyzptlk, an interdimensional peacekeeper, and he needs Clark's help. He is already aware that Clark is Superman thanks to his knowledge of the infinite multiverse. According to Mxyzptlk, the Lois of this universe has been captured by a gang of interdimensional criminals. Clark, predictably worried about Lois, puts on his suit and agrees to help Mxyzptlk, who tells him that the kidnappers have taken measures against Mxyzptlk, which means that Superman will have to be do the heavy-lifting in this mission. He then opens an interdimensional portal and takes Superman through it.

The portal throws Superman and Mxyzptlk into a room in which Mxyzptlk feels his powers weakening. He tells Superman to tear open a door, claiming that Lois is held on the other side and Superman complies, only to be attacked by a large robot. Superman defeats it and enters the room but finds no trace of Lois. The room only contains a large collection of artifacts and Mxyzptlk admits that he brought Superman to this room so he could help Mxyzptlk rob it. Lois was never in any real danger. Mxyzptlk only said she was in danger just to deceive Superman. As Mxyzptlk grabs a tape recorder, Superman attempts to capture him, but Mxyzptlk opens a portal that throws them both into another dimension, a barren wasteland.

Just Lois and Jimmy depart from the laundromat, they come across a group of strangers wearing helmets and body armor. They remove their helmets and reveal themselves to be alternate versions of Lois Lane, from across different universes. They came to this universe because its Clark is in trouble. They take Lois and Jimmy to their flagship and the leader of the group, an older version of Lois, explains that they are members of the League of Lois Lanes, an interdimensional peacekeeping forced founded by the Lois of the prime universe, the first Lois to discover and explore the multiverse.

In their peacekeeping efforts, the League recruits the best Loises from across the multiverse. This gives Lois a small inferiority complex, as the Loises from the League have already accomplished many great things, while she herself is still a rookie. One of the squadron's members is an alternate version of Jimmy, and Leader Lois explains that a few alternate versions of Jimmy are members of the League, as well. The League has been tracking down Mr. Mxyzptlk, a self-proclaimed god of chaos. They had previously managed to disarm him, but a mysterious portal, the same portal opened by the Brain and Monseiur Mallah, allowed Mxyzptlk to escape to Earth-12, the home universe of Lois and Jimmy.

They tracked him to Universe-12 and have reasons to believe that Superman is somehow involved in whatever Mxyzptlk is planning. The League removes a strand of Lois' hair and use it to track Earth-12's tachyons. Leader Lois explains to Lois that this procedure will help them find the Superman of Earth-12. Jimmy bonds with Jalana Olsen, who is also a conspiracy theorist like him, while Lois sneaks into a room and finds a computer, which she uses to find information about the other Loises. When tries to find information about Superman, she finds a file title "File X", a redacted file that can only be opened at the League's headquarters. Meanwhile, the League has already tracked Superman and Mxyzptlk to Earth-14.

The League prepares energy weapons to take down Superman and Lois realizes that they're planning to harm Superman. The League didn't want Lois' help. They only used her to capture her Superman. After encasing Lois inside a crystal tube and holding Jimmy hostage, the League confronts Superman, who has already captured Mxyzptlk. The Loises shoot Superman with their weapons, which cause him severe pain, but Mxyzptlk uses the confrontation to steal the Loises' ship and escape into the multiverse.

Inside the ship, Lois confronts Mxyzptlk, but instead of capturing him, she asks him to take her to the League's headquarters because she wants to find whatever the other Loises are hiding about Superman. Mxyzptlk, amused by Lois' curiosity, says that the Lois of Earth-12 is similar to prime universe Lois in the sense that neither of them trusted anyone. He even reveals that the tape recorder he stole contains a keycard that will open something at the League's headquarters.

Once they reach the League's headquarters, Lois attempts to use the headquarters' computer to learn about Superman, only to find a small orb, while Mxyzptlk learns that the keycard opens a room that contains his hat and once he puts it on, he regains his full power. Suddenly, the alternate Loises, Superman and Jimmy reach the headquarters and confront Mxyzptlk. As the League fight Mxyzptlk, Superman and Lois apologize for ruining their date. Lois believes herself to be the worst Lois in the multiverse and says that Superman would be better with anyone else, but Superman says that there is no one else he'd rather be. They finally share their first kiss, but have no time to enjoy it, as Mxyzptlk is still causing trouble.

Working together, the Daily Planet trio create a plan to defeat Mxyzptlk. Superman distracts Mxyzptlk, Lois removes his hat and Jimmy physically restrains him. The League locks up the weakened Mxyzptlk and attempts to arrest the Daily Planet trio, as well, but Jalana, having bonded with Jimmy, secretly helps them escape back to Earth-12. Jimmy gives Clark and Lois enough privacy so they can enjoy what's left of their date.

Lois returns to her apartment and attempts to activate the orb she had obtained at the League's headquarters. Once she activates it, she sees images of Superman from alternate universes and some of them are evil. Mxyzptlk, having escaped from the League once again, explains that not every Lois in the multiverse wins a Pulitzer and not every Superman is heroic. The orb also contains a green crystal and when Lois asks Mxyzptlk about it, he says that watching her figure it out on her own will be more interesting. He disappears and Lois is left to think about what happened.

Notes

  • Max Fleischer's Lois Lane is referred to as "Lois Prime" in this episode. However, it is left ambiguous whether her world and Earth-Prime are the same universe.
  • While recruiting Clark, Mr. Mxyzptlk physically transformed him into five different Supermen: the one from "this Earth" (Clark in his Superman costume), Earth-12 (the Superman from the 1941 cartoons), Earth-50 (the Superman from Super Friends), Earth-508 (the Superman from the DC Animated Universe) and Weird Earth (Crab Superman). This would indicate that this series is not set on Earth-12. However, when Leader Lois Lane later recruited the Lois and Jimmy from this series, she identified them as being the Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen from Earth-12, a "previously-unknown universe."
    • So which of them was correct, Mr. Mxyzptlk or Leader Lois Lane?
