Synopsis for "Let's Go to Ivo Tower, You Say"

At the Daily Planet, Lois continues to accuse Superman of being a liar for dodging her questions. Clark, trying to hide his secret identity, thinks that Superman is being sincere about his desire to help people, but Lois thinks that Clark is just describing himself. Jimmy gives Lois a pile of magazines and newspaper articles talking about aliens and Lois says that they can use them to track Superman down. In that moment, Perry asks them to come to his office.

There, Perry asks them to go to a party at Ivo Tower to interview Anthony Ivo, CEO of AmazoTech, as the most eligible bachelor of Metropolis. Clark thinks they can use this opportunity to ask him questions about his supposed criminal activities, but Perry asks them not to.

As Clark prepares for the party, he finds a magazine article talking about a flying boy from Kansas. Realizing that article talks about him, Clark rips the article from the magazine and hides it in his coat. The three interns arrive at the party and Lois uses that as an opportunity to interview the guests about their corruption, but the guests continuously ignore her, while Jimmy gets asked by a millionaire to take photos of his family.

The party's host, Anthony Ivo, introduces himself in a stage and teases his latest project. Curtis, a member of AmazoTech's board of directors, tells Ivo that the board will vote to decide whether or not Ivo should be removed from the company, as AmazoTech has not enjoyed any recent profits and Ivo himself is broke. Ivo promises that his latest project will turn a profit, but Curtis doesn't trust him. Just when Ivo is about to get violent with Curtis, Clark introduces himself to Ivo and, following Lois' example, decides to ask him about the accusations thrown at him for corruption. Unfortunately, this gets Clark thrown out of the party by Ivo's bodyguards.

Lois, impressed by Clark's courage, sneaks Clark back to the party through a backdoor and offers to fix his damaged coat, admitting she herself has ripped lots of clothes while chasing stories. Clark watches Lois reject a phone call from her father and she replies that she and her father haven't spoken that much, even before her mother died. She never saw him as someone she could trust and she's never been able to talk to someone about her problems. Even so, Clark patiently listens to her and says that Lois changed his life for the better.

Clark even tries to reveal his secret identity for, but she admits that she hates being lied to, which causes Clark to stop himself at the last possible second. Suddenly, they watch a door leading to a secret room that contains the same technology used by Intergang and Livewire. Within that room, Ivo vents his frustrations with his technician Alex and expresses his desire to test out his latest project despite Alex's insistence that the project is still a prototype.

Ivo returns to his stage and introduces his project, a suit of armor codenamed "Parasite 1.0". The people of Metropolis, according to Ivo, live in dangerous times. Metropolis used to be the safest city in America, but now, it's plagued by a severe crime wave and Superman cannot be trusted. Ivo says that with his Parasite suit, anybody can be their own Superman. As a demonstration, he attempts to throw Curtis out of the building.

Superman quickly arrives to the tower, saves Curtis and asks Ivo to let the guests go free, but Ivo just tells Alex to seal the room with an energy field. He uses his suit to attack Superman, explaining that the suit grants the wearer with strength, speed and durability similar to those of Superman, and if the suit takes damage, it can absorb kinetic energy and redirect it. With the suit, Ivo can take Superman's attacks and return them with even greater strength.

To help Superman, Lois and Jimmy infiltrate Alex's control room, incapacitate Alex and deactivate the energy field imprisoning the guests. Superman keeps his distance from Ivo, dodges his attacks and allows his opponent to exhaust himself. The suit malfunctions and Ivo is left horribly disfigured. As Ivo is taken to the hospital, Clark takes Lois and Jimmy to Ivo's secret storage room, only to find that it's been emptied of all contents. Lois comforts Clark and admits she was impressed by his willingness to chase after a story.

Later, at the Daily Planet, Lois finishes uploading her story to the newspaper's main server, only to rediscover the magazines and newspapers brought by Jimmy to their office. She reorganizes her board with her new evidence and finds the article Clark put on his coat. Upon realizing that Clark and Superman look almost exactly the same, she begins to consider the possibility of Clark and Superman being the same person.
