Synopsis for Supergirl: "The Death of Luthor!"

This story is reprinted from Action Comics #286.

Lex Luthor breaks jail again and reunites with his gang. His objective: prove that Supergirl is a hoax, and / or destroy her. He succeeds in endangering her with Green Kryptonite, but, when she escapes that hazard and pursues him, Luthor accidentally kills himself with a ray-gun of his own creation.[1] Though the police on hand believe Luthor has finally gotten his just deserts, Supergirl thinks that he should not escape his life sentence this way. She scours Atlantis and several alien worlds to find material for a cocoon which, applied just in time, restores Luthor to life. Luthor proves to be less than grateful, especially when they haul him off to jail again.
