Synopsis for "The Amazing Superman Junior"

Lois Lane gets herself into trouble once again, but fortunately Superman is there to show her the error of her ways. Lois's latest adventure involves an experimental rocket ship. Working on an assignment for the Daily Planet, Lois sneaks on board the ship to get details for her article. While fiddling about the ship, she accidentally initiates the launch sequence and the rocket blasts off towards outer space. Superman arrives just in time and brings Lois and the rocket back to Earth.

In order to teach Lois a lesson, Superman enlists Perry White, Jimmy Olsen and Robin the Boy Wonder to play a prank on her. They disguise themselves as feeble old men, and when Lois encounters them she mistakenly believes that the rocket trip transported her several decades into the future. She eventually discovers the trick and decides to get Superman back.

She convinces Robin to begin masquerading as new teen hero known as Superman Jr. When Superman encounters this new hero, he finds Lois Lane professing her undying love to Superman Jr. Ultimately however, Superman discovers the ruse and everyone enjoys a good laugh.

Synopsis for "Lois Lane -- Convict"

A gangster known as Sharpie discovers that Lois Lane is working on an exposé that may get him into trouble with the authorities. He secretly meets with Lois and offers her a bribe to kill the story. Lois accepts the money, but soon discovers that the gangster has taken a picture of her with the money. He uses the photo to blackmail Lois even further.

The authorities discover Lois' crime and she is sent to prison. She confesses to accepting stolen money in exchange for killing the crime story. A group of thugs break Lois out of prison and arrange a meeting with the mob leader, Baldy Pate. Baldy pressures Lois into telling him the location of the evidence she had intended on using against him (a set of counterfeit license plates). Superman arrives and rescues Lois. The entire scheme was a ploy to bring Baldy Pate out into the open so that the authorities could bring him up on charges.
