Superman's departure from Metropolis to walk across the country has led to a slow news cycle for the city's biggest paper. If a lack of Superman front-page headlines weren't bad enough for the paper, a muckraking news blog has accused the Planet of bribing Superman for their stories -- putting even their journalistic integrity on the line! With all of the paper's best reporters on other duties, Perry White must recruit the help of a junior photographer to go undercover and save the Planet's reputation.
