Synopsis for "Before This Night is Over, Superman Will Kill!"

Jamie Lombard collapses suddenly from "journalists' disease". Superman is about to destroy Jevik, which is in its non-living phase. Amalak, by remote control, causes Jevik to shift into living phase, and Superman stops just before he would have killed it. After a short battle, he subdues Jevik. Then Superman goes to the Justice League satellite, where he battles Amalak and defeats him by striking Kanjar Ro's gamma gong.

Later, Amalak kills himself, trying to make Superman think he has hurt Amalak fatally with the gong-striking, but Superman makes him confess the truth with his dying breath. Superman distributes a world-wide treatment for "journalists' disease" by putting tranquilizer in clouds, and while the infected are calm Superman cures them with Nam-Ek's captive power. Later, he finds a fully-recovered Green Lantern and Flash, who have rescued Supergirl.
