|Summary: As Krypton nears destruction, scientist Jor-El tries to discover a way to save the doomed planet. This episode tells of Clark's arrival on Earth and his transformation into Superman. This pilot episode was once aired as a one-hour episode instead of three smaller parts.
The Kryptonian scientist Jor-El is collecting data from an ice field on the planet Krypton. After obtaining the samples he needs, Jor-El escapes after encountering an attacking creature and an earthquake. After analyzing the data, he discovers that building pressure from Krypton's core will eventually destroy Krypton. The computer Brainiac, which is in charge of all major operations on Krypton, denies this. Jor-El is unable to convince the rulers of the impending doom. When Jor-El tries to confront Brainiac, he notices that it is downloading all the data it has collected about Krypton. Brainiac orders the police to detain Jor-El, but Jor-El manages to evade them. Once home, he and his wife Lara send their only son Kal-El into space just before the planet explodes. Brainiac had escaped into a satellite just before.
Kal-El arrives in his spaceship on Earth and is adopted by Martha and Jonathan Kent. Martha decides to adopt the baby despite Jonathan's protests, and names the baby Clark. When Clark grows up, he realizes that he has extraordinary physical capabilities and can see through walls. He rescues a person after a gas station accident, and his friend Lana is surprised that he was not burned. When Clark shows Jonathan his ability to melt metal, Jonathan reveals to him his extraterrestrial origins.
Lex Luthor is presenting LexCorp's new battle suit robot when it is stolen by terrorists. Superman manages to capture two of them, but the one with the battle suit escapes after one of the terrorist's missiles damages an airplane's wings. Soon, reports of the strange new entity start appearing on the news, and Lois is told to try to get an interview with him.
