Synopsis for "The Strange Saga of Stalagron"
Superman and Batman find themselves at the mercy of Stalagron, who reveals his tragic origins to them and informs them about his plan to revitalize his source of power: a big boulder of Green Kryptonite, responsible for creating him and all his minions.
Stalagron leaves the heroes trapped and he takes Yumiko with him while he prepares his plan with all his other stalagmite brothers. They are planning to create a massive earthquake that will in turn generate a volcano, in which they will place the kryptonite boulder to create more of them with the people that Stalagron has kidnapped over the years.
Yumiko escapes from the monsters and she helps Batman and Superman break free, after which the heroes go to Wayne Manor, allowing Superman to recover. In the meantime, Stalagron and his men have succeeded in creating the volcano and are placing the kryptonite. Batman and Superman go to the place to prevent the creation of more monsters and while Batman uses explosives to prevent a disaster in the slopes of the volcano, Superman fight Stalagron at the top, where they both fall to the lava inside and Superman destroys Stalagron with his super strength.
With their leader destroyed and the kryptonite melted in the lava, the rest of the stalagmite men are destroyed and the volcano returns to the core of Earth. After a successful mission, Batman and Superman return to their normal activities, and they even play the switch identities once again to throw off Yumiko's suspicions.
