Synopsis for "Superman: Up in the Sky, Part 3: FIGHT!!!"
This story is reprinted from Superman Giant #5.
Superman's journey across the stars continues. His search for Alice leads him to Mighto, an alien mercenary who was hired to take Alice elsewhere. Rather than engaging in a violent confrontation, Superman and Mighto agree to settle their differences in a boxing match. They have made a deal: if Superman wins, Mighto tells him what he needs to know; if he loses, he goes home and abandons Alice.
As the match begins, Mighto admits that if Superman was allowed to use all his superpowers, he would easily win. But in a boxing match, decided only by the strength and skill of their fists, Mighto has the advantage. Mighto badly pummels Superman, telling the Man of Steel to spare himself the pain and return home. Superman refuses to yield, however, and endures for 12 rounds. Mighto acknowledges Superman's determination and admits he cannot measure up to that, so he yields and tells Superman what he needs to know.

Sometime later, Superman's journey has left him badly injured. He came across someone who knew where Alice from him and tried to take answers from them. Unfortunately, the stranger attacked Superman and left him unconscious and floating in the depths of space. An alien spacecraft finds his body and the captain brings him onboard so that the healer can help him.
Despite the healer's efforts, Superman's injuries are too severe and if the captain warns the healer that if he continues using his powers, he will die. The healer reluctantly leaves Superman to his impending death and returns to his family. As he sleeps, however, he dreams of all the times Superman has saved the universe from countless horrors. His healing powers have connected him to Superman's mind and gotten him to realize the Man of Steel's significance to the universe and its people. The healer speaks to his wife and tells him about what he saw. He believes he must save Superman. His wife begs him not to, as he has children to take care of, but the healer remains resolute, knowing that Superman will never let his sacrifice be in vain.
The healer uses his powers to their fullest extent and dies, but Superman survives. The Man of Steel goes to meet the healer's family and offers his sincerest condolences for the death of the healer. The children hug Superman, knowing that although their father is dead, his memory remains.
