Hoping to put an end to the growing threat of rebellion, President Snow announces that the Quell's tributes will be reaped from the existing pool of victors -- gauranteeing Katniss a place in the arena. Though Katniss vows to keep Peeta safe even if it means sacrificing her own life, her fellow triubtes have a different plan.

As a young boy, Clark displays incredible superpowers that instill him with a profound sense of personal responsibility. Later, the amiable Clark becomes a reporter for the Metropolis newspaper "The Daily Planet", and strikes up a friendship with crackerjack journalist Lois Lane.
