The Daily Planet is a news agency located in Metropolis. Its headquarters is adorned with a globe of the planet on the roof top. Lois Lane, a reporter, sent Jimmy Olsen to Stryker's Island Penitentiary to record B-roll footage of Parasite for her article or else. Olsen later recorded the battle between Wonder Woman and Calythos in Mid-City Park on the Planet's live feed and garnered over 280,000 views. In the conclusion the battle, Calythos knocked Wonder Woman into the side of the Daily Planet globe. Superman barely had enough power to leap to the roof. Olsen ran up the stairs to the roof and told them Calythos had Parasite. He showed them a part of his recording revealing Calythos integrated Parasite into himself and had his power leeching ability. Batman drove past the Planet in his Batmobile in pursuit of another Brothers Djinn, Uthool. The Daily Planet was featured on the Metropolis map in Toyman's "Blvd Brawlers 2 JLA" video. Brainiac and his space ship appeared near the Daily Planet to add Metropolis to his collection of shrunken cities.

After being scooped on an article about a battle between Batman, Superman, and gangsters armed with alien weaponry, Sid Sharp returned to the Daily Planet. Sharp was upset Clark Kent kept scooping every story involving Superman. Jimmy Olsen informed him it was because Kent and Superman were friends. Sharp got an idea. He made himself a costume based on Superman's and named his alter-ego Doctor Scoop. Sharp pitched his idea of the Daily Planet having access to its own personal superhero to Perry White. White reminded him he wasn't a superhero. Desaad tracked Superman to the Planet and dispatched Parademons. Batman contacted Superman with an update, the weapon was from Apokolips. Kent went to the janitor's closet but Sharp was inside trying to change. A Boom Tube manifested in the hall. A Parademon set off a Kryptonite Bomb. The force knocked Kent and Sharp into a shelf. The Parademons searched the floor. They discounted Kent on account of his glasses. Sharp was still in his costume and was mistaken for Superman. He was taken to Apokolips.

Sharp recounted his rescue to the other reporters. Olsen didn't think Superman told him he was 'Superman' now. Sharp told him he could read all about it in the early edition. Sharp marched to White's office to present his article but Kent already submitted his. White walked off to pause the printing and hold the front page for Kent's story. Kent slipped his article into Sharp's hands. The early edition read "Superman: Sid Sharp Saved My Life!"
