Daily Planet, which is just The Torch with different furniture and lighting. Chloe is tapping away on a keyboard. She's trying to get Clark to help her come up with a catchy moniker for the vigilante lady. Shouldn't Clark be at home starting up the morning chores by now? "'Miss Death Wish,'" Chloe suggests, and then dismisses it as lame. "'Dirty Harriet'?" she continues. Clark has no good ideas. Chloe says that her idea is too derivative. Chloe claps her hand and says she's got it! Well, don't give it to anyone else. Chloe remembers that MamaKent said the vigilante swooped down from above. "How about The Angel of Vengeance?" Chloe asks. She types "ANGEL OF VENGEANCE" across a Daily Planet front page. I sure hope that's just a mock-up and that they're not actually letting Chloe write front-page headlines. Clark has to remind Chloe about the police report they're waiting on. Chloe apologizes for going into the Woodward and Bernstein Zone. Chloe goes to check the fax. Clark stares at the sketch of the vigilante.
Chloe goes to the fax machine. She finds what she's looking for from the Metropolis PD. But just then, BatChica swoops down from some stairs and grabs Chloe from behind. BatChica, masked, tells Chloe that she heard they're planning a front-page story. She says that would be bad for her health. I guess Office Girl wasn't working at The Daily Planet long enough to know that Chloe wouldn't have any say on such a sketchy story making the front page. "Let it go. Comprende?" BatChica asks. Horale! "Hey, what are you doing?" Clark asks, appearing suddenly, but at normal speed. Nice save, Clark. Was Scrubs on? Glad you could make it. BatChica releases Chloe, then punches Clark square in the chest. He goes flying. Breaks a desk. Chloe runs. BatChica uses her awesome powers to jump three feet off the ground onto a desk while growling. She crouches. Nice boots, Chica. "Stay out of my way," BatChica tells Clark, who is cowering on the ground, "I'm one of the good guys." BatChica disappears with a "Whoosh!" Clark stands. Chloe asks if he's all right. They both stare at where BatChica once was. Clark is somehow unable to pursue BatChica. Good one, Superdink.
Commercials. Acuvue is a sponsor of this episode? Hey, wait a minute. Is something fishy going on here?
Chloe and Clark are still at the newspaper. Chloe enters the room telling Clark to score one for the X chromosome: "And that costume. How cool was that?" Given what we know about Clark's future costume, it's not as bad as you'd think. "A little over the top, if you ask me," Clark says, hilariously. Clark wants to look at the police reports. Chloe says she has to "give the girl props" for patrolling the streets, but wonders if she's a "natural-born ninja" or a garden-variety Kryptofreak. That's a lot of jargon, Chloe. Clark mumbles that she must have issues. Chloe calls Clark on having done crazy things to protect his identity in the past. Usually he just kills or wounds the witnesses. Clark, having speed-read the police report, says that BatChica was the only witness at his mom's mugging. He's going to have to track her down. Chloe says that after the way homechica "chop-sockied" Clark, she wouldn't expect an invitation for tea. Clark broods on the word "tea." "Might not have to," he says. Clark's going to get his Lipton on.
