The Reporter of Steel

The Reporter of Steel! is a 1959 Superman comic book story, appearing in Action Comics #257.


Lex Luthor invents a Super-Ray which gives anyone super-powers identical to Superman's. He aims it at Clark, as a test, and gives him the powers. Unknown to him, of course, Clark already has powers, but plays along. Clark then begins demanding money to save people.



  • Lois Lane previously had a dream in which Clark gained powers, becoming Power-Man, in "Lois Lane's Super-Dream". In the dream, Clark proved too timid to wield Superman's powers.
