Ambush Bug however sees through Clark's civilian identity and manages to reveal that Clark is really Superman. Shocked that Ambush Bug was this perceptive, the Man of Steel flees the scene.
Later, Superman has a dream about Ambush Bug's origins: About how he was a man named Irwin Schwab, who after living life as a couch potato decided to learn all he could from books after his television finally broke down. Shaving his head he would create the technology needed to become Ambush Bug. Superman wakes up, realizing it was all a dream and tires his hardest to get Ambush Bug out of his mind, with little success.
