Synopsis for "The Loneliest Man in the Universe"
Supergirl tells Superman she is thinking about giving up her Supergirl identity to live the life of an ordinary woman, with a husband and children. To illustrate that she might feel different later on if she makes that choice, Superman tells her about Nam-Ek. Nam lived 500 years before Krypton's explosion, killed two Rondors for their curative horns, and extracted a serum from them to make himself immortal. But, since slaying a Rondor is illegal, Nam-Ek became a fugitive from justice. Drinking the serum from the horns, Nam-Ek transformed himself into a hideous, smelly "human Rondor" with a curative horn growing from his forehead. He learned that he was immortal and invulnerable, and worked in solitude for five centuries, only to learn that he needed companionship. Unfortunately, since he was smelly and ugly, nobody wanted to get within throwing distance of him, and everyone drove him away. Just as Nam-Ek sought out another Rondor in hopes of changing himself back to normal, Krypton exploded. Nam-Ek floated in lifeless space, alone forever. Thus, Superman cautions his cousin about the danger of getting one's wishes fulfilled. He doesn't tell her how he knew of Nam-Ek. But she admits that she has some "heavy thinking" to do.
