Synopsis for "Impact!"
As the Man of Steel brings his brawl with the Last Son of Krypton to a close with the latter conceding that there is more to being Superman than just having power, Lex Luthor II strikes a deal with the White Rabbit by having the Man of Steel delivered to her for her personal destruction. The Man of Steel is offered a free ride back to Metropolis where he is greeted by gunfire by the White Rabbit's gang and almost squashed to death by Graham's expanding mass. The White Rabbit takes Man of Steel to an abandoned factory for manufacturing parts for Toastmasters when she trips a switch, intending to trap him there while she sets off a bomb to destroy him with the factory. However, the Man of Steel causes the factory to collapse upon her while he escapes in time just before the bomb explodes.
