Synopsis for Superman: "The Kryptonite Killer!"
Lex Luthor performs a boon for the Automs, and is rewarded with a laboratory of his own. In it, he fashions three criminal Androids into a Diamond Man, a Leadman, and a Kryptonite Man. With their help, he steals all of the Automs Radium and manages to return to his rocket and escapes with all three of them.
The foursome begin a spree of space piracy. Superman intervenes and destroys the Diamond Man, but the triple-strength rays of the Kryptonite Man are too much for Superman. Lead Man is infuriated by Luthor's callous destruction of his friend and melts itself over the Kryptonite Man, neutralizing his deadly radiation. Superman captures Luthor and returns him to prison on Earth.
