Superman comes to the rescue in the issue's first story, Superman versus Luthor , after Metropolis is rocked by its first ever earthquake! After Superman helps with rescue efforts, Clark Kent discovers that a powerful new laser weapon that is coveted by none other than his nemesis, Luthor, caused the tremor. The evil mastermind challenges Superman to a battle that pits our hero's Kryptonian powers against Luthor's scientific weaponry: if Superman wins, Luthor will admit defeat but if Superman loses, the caped hero must retire from his crime-fighting ways.
Superman then performs incredible feats including outpacing super-speed planes, leaping high beyond the stratosphere, even surviving an exploding grenade. But the contest turns out to merely be a distraction, allowing Luthor's henchman to steal the device. Will Superman be able to find Luthor and retrieve the laser before it can cause more destruction? It just might take another incredible feat of strength to save the day.Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched.
