Synopsis for "Menace at 1000 Degrees!"

In the fifth part of the Sandman Saga storyline, Superman must now deal with having abilities much closer to his original 1940s self as he handles terrorists who are using an experimental weapon that taps into the natural energy of the Earth's core. However, as Superman pleads with his sand-created duplicate to help him out, he refuses to do so as he does not share Superman's passion for protecting his adopted world. As Superman ends up resorting to using a disguise in order to foil the terrorists, Lois Lane is left wondering why Superman didn't deal with them the way he normally would do so with his powers, and Superman feeling less confident about himself to even tell her why.
