Synopsis for "The Amazing Brain Machine!"

Professor Potter arrives at Lois’s apartment with a new computer that he calls MANIAC mathematical Analyzer Numerical Integrator and Automatic Computer. The computer is designed to answer the most complicated problems. Lois asks for a demonstration and the computer is able to figure out why Lana Lang is staying at Lois’s apartment. It also determines the location of Lana’s lost pin. Professor Potter asks Lois to keep the computer in her apartment to keep it from falling into criminal hands. The Professor also warns Lois not to tamper with MANIAC because it has not yet been perfected. Ignoring the Professors warning, Lois uses the computer to find stolen loot from a gang of thieves. She also uses MANIAC to tell her how to best obtain a raise from her boss Perry White. After witnessing MANIACS amazing abilities, Lois asks the computer to help her marry the man of her dreams. The computer spits out a note and tells Lois to read it when she is in the arms of her man who will be at lookout point in an hour. Lana Lang witnesses Lois using the computer and decides to use it as well to steal Lois’s man away. The two women then tussle with each other and Lois destroys MANIAC to prevent Lana from using it. She travels to lookout point but is disappointed to find Clark there instead of Superman. She learns that Clark is there to report on firework preparations for an upcoming celebration. Lois deduces that her longtime hunch that Clark and Superman are one and the same must be correct. She produces the note from MANIAC but it is blown away by the wind. In her frenzy to catch the note, Lois knocks off Clarks glasses which fall to the bottom of the platform and the lenses ignite the fireworks that has been set up below. The explosion from the fireworks blow up the platform that Clark and Lois had been standing on. Clark then has to summon a Superman robot to rescue the two of them. The robot also prevents Lois from confirming that he is really Superman. Clark later finds the note that blew away and finds that it instructed Lois to propose because she now knew that Clark was really Superman in disguise. In the end Professor Potter decides to dismantle MANIAC because mankind is not ready for such technology.

Synopsis for "The Fantastic Wigs of Mr. Dupre!"

A villain known as The Masquerader seeks to have Lois Lane killed before she can expose a phony charities racket he and his gang are behind. Accordingly, he poses as a wig-shop owner and convinces Lois that a batch of wigs he has on stock were enchanted by a sorcerer, and that the wigs, in the shape of the hair of famous figures such as Marie Antoinette, will cause their wearers to suffer the same deaths as the persons whose hair they resemble. To lend substance to his theory, the Masquerader, in his true identity of Booth Barry, an actor, plays the part of Alexander Hamilton, uses one of the wigs, and "dies" from a gunshot as Hamilton did after a duel. To investigate the "curse", Lois puts on several of the wigs and barely escapes doom each time. Finally, the Masquerader gives Lois a wig fashioned to look like Supergirl's hair. But the real Supergirl has returned from a mission in the future, sees through the hoax, lets Lois in on it, and takes Lois's place to foil a deathtrap. Then Supergirl captures the Masquerader and takes him to prison.
