"Long ago, while upon a scientific expedition into the heart of Mongolia," Professor Winton witnessed the arrival of a gigantic
meteor from outer space. Returning with a fragment of it to his laboratory, Professor Winton learns the nature of the
destroyed planet Krypton and of its super-powered former inhabitants, now apparently all destroyed.
Years later, when Clark Kent interviews Professor Winton on a routine story assignment, the reporter is launched upon a series of adventures
that ultimately result in him learning the secret of his origin, the nature of his powers, and revealing his
dual identity to
fellow reporter Lois Lane.
