When a youthful criminal and his dog gain the powers of Green Kryptonite radiation from passing through a green space-cloud, they come to Earth and endanger Superboy and Krypto with their radiation and their abilities to transform anything they touch into Kryptonite.

Synopsis for "How Luthor Met Superboy!"

This story is reprinted from Adventure Comics #271.

Superboy meets and befriends Lex Luthor, a brown-haired teenage scientist who is his biggest fan, after Luthor saves him from a Kryptonite meteor. The Boy of Steel creates a modern laboratory for Luthor, in which the latter creates a simple form of protoplasmic life and uses it to make an antidote for Kryptonite. But, when Luthor accidentally starts a fire, Superboy comes to the rescue, blowing out the blaze. The blast of air knocks an acid bottle into the bottle containing the life-form, destroying it and creating a gas which causes all of Lex's hair to fall out. Enraged at the loss of the life-form, the irreplaceable formula for its creation, and his hair, Luthor vows vengeance against Superboy. He traps Superboy with a Kryptonite meteorite, but the hero survives by inhaling the last few drops of Luthor's antidote. Superboy declares that they are even now, and he owes Luthor nothing, though he refuses to take him to jail and tells Luthor to straighten out. Luthor vows that he will someday become more famous than Superboy, and will destroy him.
