Synopsis for "Superboy: The Event"
Superboy defeats a villain called King Kamehamayhem in about 3 seconds and laughs at him all the way. Some of the local villages are offended at the whole scene as they regard Superboy mocking a Hawaiian mythical figure. Some go so far as to blame Superboy as the cause for all the trouble on the islands.
Back at the Compound, Superboy just doesn't understand what he did wrong, despite Roxy and Hillary trying to explain it to him. Out of the blue Rex Leech shows up announcing Superboy: The Event, a major project in Hollywood, and promises that it will make them all rich and even more famous. Superboy agrees, and a huge publicity spectacle ensues. Everyone is dying to know just what it is, however, but not even Superboy can tell them. He insists on meeting with the execs of SSS Studios, who are putting on The Event. They explain to him that it's going to be a huge theme park.
On the day of the event, Superboy does the unveiling. Instead of a huge, extravagant theme park, there is only one small roller coaster ride. A disgruntled actor for SSS, Voss Stokker, sabotages the ride, endangering the lives of the first ones aboard. Superboy swoops in to the rescue and manages to save everyone, even as the whole ride comes crumbling down. Voss grabs one of the execs and threatens them all, so SB rounds him up. The media all blame the Kid, calling The Event everything from a disastrous fiasco to a pure publicity stunt, and no one is happy. SB learns that it was all a scam, set up by the execs to get higher ratings. Upset, he starts flying back to Hawaii on his own, but is caught in a storm and struck by lightning.
