Synopsis for Superman: "The Story of Superman, Junior"

Dr. Morton Kirk, believing that Earth was doomed to perish when a giant planet threatened to collide with it, sent his young son Johnny off in a rocket, intending to place him on another world. But Superboy saved the Earth, though he was unable to find Johnny Kirk, and the dying Dr. Kirk left him a last request: that if he found Johnny, he would become his legal guardian. Years later, the space capsule carrying Johnny crashes to Earth, and Superman learns that Johnny's passage through space has given him super-powers. He adopts Johnny, gives him the identity of Superman, Jr., and moves to Smallville under a new secret identity...and all the while, a "super-poison" Superman has breathed in from the space capsule is robbing him of his powers.
