A recent journalism graduate from Northville College who applies for a reporter’s job on the [[Daily Planet]] and, at [[Clark Kent]]’s suggestion, persuades editor [[Perry White]] to promise him employment if he can successfully acquire seven major stories over the course of the next seven days. In the days that follow, unbeknownst to Binkle, [[Superman]] – who has become increasingly resentful of [[Lois Lane]]’s “mania for scoops” and of the time and trouble it takes to keep her out of danger—surreptitiously manufactures a series of major news stories for Binkle in hopes that he can help the eager Binkle make good and at the same time “take some of the scoop-craziness out of Lois” by showing here that she can be “outclassed by a beginner like Herbert.” Lois ultimately learns of Superman’s secret ai to Binkle, but like a good sport she refrains from exposing himo on the ground that Binkle is an innocent party who would only be hurt by the revelation (Act No. 138, Nov 1949: “Superman Scoop-Parade).
