Synopsis for "To Save a Superman"
Superman suffers a humiliating loss of face as he fails to stop a burning building from completely collapsing. Yet even as he contemplates letting humanity fend for itself as a way to placate his wounded pride, Superman decides to use what's left of his waning powers to stop a would-be bank robbery by the Anti-Superman Gang. Meanwhile, Diana Prince's mentor I-Ching comes on the scene to help Superman, as he suspects that Superman's loss of powers may be of a supernatural cause. Just as I-Ching is about to put Superman into a sleep, Anti-Superman Gang members break into I-Ching's basement residence and club Superman in the head. Though suffering a head injury and now down to merely regular human strength, Superman prevails in defeating the gangsters.
