Synopsis

Lois befriends the intelligent chimp Toto just before he is sent into orbit inside a satellite. While in orbit, the satellite passes by a collision of a uranium metorite with a kryptonite one, which causes the chimp to grow to enormous size and shoot kryptonite beams from his eyes. Because of this change, Lois re-names him Titano. Though not meaning any harm, Titano poses a threat to humanity and Superman, so the army traps the giant chimp, planning to execute him. But Lois devises a way to block Titano's kryptonite vision so Superman can send him into the past where he cannot harm anyone.

Notes

Titano's second appearance, in Superman (DC, 1939 series) 138, has the same story title.
