Synopsis for "All I Want for Christmas"
Clark has to do some last minute shopping, and goes to the mall. Meanwhile, La Encantadora is also heading to the mall to get presents for her brother. Clark is very surprised to find Etrigan the Demon working as a Santa Claus in the mall. Clark quickly leaves, and changes into Superman. Once in costume, he returns and and attacks Etrigan.
As Etrigan and Superman trade blows, Superman recalls how Etrigan tried to take over Earth and freeze Hell over. Etrigan punches Superman into orbit, and the Man of Steel crashes on the moon, next to the Watchtower. Inside, Plastic Man and Green Lantern have just seen Superman outside, and are very bewildered. Meanwhile, back on Earth, La Encantadora sees what's going on, and tries the seductive approach on Etrigan, using her magic mists. This doesn't work however, because the mists are what Etrigan is after. He takes control of them and uses them to release everyone's inner-demons into the physical world, however, they are small, beatable ones.
Superman returns from the moon, and continues fighting Etrigan. Etrigan, while fighting Superman, tells the Man of Steel that this is part of his scheme to kill his better half, Jason Blood, because every year, Etrigan can freely rome without Blood, but Etrigan doesn't reveal how the mists are supposed to accomplish his goal. Meanwhile, Lois is fighting off an illusory version of Lex Luthor, as Etrigan explains his whole plan to Superman while they continue to fight. Encantadora helps Supes, and explains to the Man of Steel that Etrigan can't be stopped. Encantadora tells him about Etrigan's cauldron (where Encantadora's mists are being held) on a nearby rooftop. Superman flies into the air and inhales all the mists, thus ridding the city of them. Etrigan, gives up, and, as he teleports, away tells Superman that he'll be back next year.
Superman calls him a grinch, and sees Encantadora on the rooftop. He gives her his cape to warm her from the snow, and she teleports away with his cape, because she wants to give it to her brother as a Christmas gift, since he is a huge Superman fan.
