Synopsis for Streaky the Supercat in "Hissy Fit"

At the Fortress of Solitude, Superman and Supergirl are packing all their things and preparing to move to their new Fortress. The only one unhappy about the moving is Streaky, who stands alone in a corner with a scowl. Supergirl attempts to comfort Streaky but when Superman comes in with Streaky's cage, Streaky gets angry, blasts the cage apart with his heat vision and flies away, followed closely by the two Kryptonian cousins. In his rush, Streaky ends up breaking an cruiser on two, but Superman and Supergirl manage to fix it in the nick of time.

Superman attempts to catch up to Streaky, but the Supercat blasts him with his heat vision, leaving the Man of Steel with a mild injury on his left cheek. The two Kryptonian cousins decide to let Streaky calm down and unwind for a while before completing the move to the new Fortress, located at the Antarctic Circle. Sometime later, Streaky flies to the new Fortress and apologizes to the Els for his terrible behavior. The Els, understanding that feline Kryptonians are more similar to humanoid Kryptonians that they had previously realized, welcome Streaky to his new home with open arms.

Synopsis for "The Scoop"

It's another day at work for Lois at the Daily Planet and she's ready to face whatever the day and the world throw at her. She happily greets her co-workers, but Clark doesn't share her enthusiasm. Clark joined the Daily Planet because he thought he could make a real difference as a journalist, but it seems that Superman is the only one really making a difference, especially because, as Perry puts it, Superman sells.

Everytime Clark tries to write about something important, his limelight gets stolen by both Superman and Lois. It would seem that people are more interested in the mighty and invincible Superman than on humble farmboy Clark. Lois tells it straight to Clark: Superman is the story. Still, Clark remains undaunted. He returns home, looks himself in the mirror and decides, for posterity's sake, to write his biggest story yet: the story of how he became Superman.

Synopsis for "The Special"

Baby Clark and his parents visit a Smallville diner, where they encounter a rookie waitress going through her first day at work. The poor girl's name is Annie and she has just dropped a tray full of cups and dishes, but Jonathan helps her clean up the mess. As Clark grows up, he feels more insecure about his gifts and the fact that he has to hide them. Jonathan and Martha admit they don't really understand what he's going through, but they do understand that Clark's life is his own and nobody else's. God made everybody unique and special, and Clark is no exception and, sooner or later, he will have to make a choice about the life he wants to live. It doesn't matter whether the path Clark chooses hasn't been taken before, what matter is that this is Clark's path and that he follows it to the end.

Clark has reached adulthood and made the firm but difficult choice to leave Smallville, much to Lana's sadness. He admits that Smallville is the best place he ever had the pleasure to live in but there is a vast, unexplored world out there and he wants to see it with his own eyes. Sure enough, Clark's path leads him to the mantle of Superman and he has countless adventures exploring the world he wanted to see so badly. Still, he makes enough time to visit his family at the Smallville diner, where he is always attended by Annie, now and older but still capable lady.

Annie is always there at the diner, ready to witness some of the most important moments in Clark's life, such as the time he took Lois to visit his parents, the time Annie herself comforted Clark over the death of Jonathan or the time he took little Jon to the diner for the first time. Finally, Annie takes a long-deserved break before rush hour begins and finds Clark waiting for her at his usual booth. Annie wonders if the choices she made in life were the right ones and Clark assures her that they were right indeed. Inspired, Annie goes to serve Clark a cup of coffee before rush hour begins.

Synopsis for "Son of Farmers"

Back in his younger years, Clark was helping Jonathan and Martha take care of the cornfields. Everything was going well, until suddenly, a tornado hit Smallville. The Kents rushed towards the storm cellar, while Clark expressed worry about the cows, but Jonathan screamed that they wouldn't be able to save them. As the tornado passed, the Kents climbed out of the cellar, only to see that the cornfield had been totally ruined. Undaunted, the Kents reconstructed and replanted the field and on that day, Clark promised never to let anyone die again on his watch.

Easier said than done, however, as Superman would face multiple challenges in his quest for justice. Everything, from common robbers to superpowered villains, would challenge Superman's resolve everyday. But there is one experience that Clark remembers all too well: one day, while enjoying a cup of coffee, Clark listened to a man having a heart attack. Knowing that this would be a job for Clark Kent, he rushed towards the man's apartment and applied CPR as hard as he could. Fortunately, Clark's efforts were successful, and the man held out long enough to receive proper medical attention.

After another job well done, Clark reunited with Lois and prepared for their date.

Synopsis for "Ally"

A boy has spent his entire life admiring Superman, not just for his powers but for his commitment to truth and justice. He even constantly put himself down for being unable to live up to Superman's lofty aspirations. He felt that, unlike Superman, he was living a lie, always having to hide a crucial part of himself. Sure, he had good friends, made okay grades and whenever he had a problem, he often asked himself "what would Superman do?", but this particular problem would be too much, even for his admiration towards Superman.

One evening, the boy returned home and saw his parents watching a TV news report about Superman. The Man of Steel was speaking his truth: his name was Clark Kent and, all this time, he's been working as a reporter for the Daily Planet. The boy was surprised that Superman had come out of his super-closet and wanted people to know the truest version of himself. On that moment, the boy realized he had to do the same, and so, he spoke the words: "I'm gay."

Surprised by the boy's announcement, the boy's family hugged him and the boy himself thanked Superman for always inspiring him.
