Synopsis

While Superman struggles to survive, Luthor meets the few remaining inhabitants of the planet and becomes their hero when he reactivates their scientific machines and temporarily solves their water shortage problem. But Superman finds Luthor, defeats him in combat, and returns him to prison on Earth, after providing the people of the planet with sufficient water on which to survive.

Notes

The planet is unnamed here, but its inhabitants will rename it Lexor in honor of their hero sometime after this story.
