Perry White was the editor for the Daily Planet. He met Clark Kent when he started working for the paper in his early 30s. When Superman started making news with his first appearance in Metropolis, Perry had his reporters seek out whatever information they can get from the Man of Steel in order to publish it. Lois, who had a private encounter with Superman at her apartment, wrote the interview she had with him which made front-page news. He, along with the rest of Metropolis, watches helplessly as Superman is severely wounded after foiling Lex Luthor's latest plot. He is relieved when Superman wakes up from his coma.
