Luthor gathers galactic matter to create The Galactic Golem, whose desire for hyper-stellar energy leads him into conflict with Superman. After Superman allows Luthor to believe that their conflict has destroyed all civilization, and The Galactic Golem has turned on Luthor, Luthor works with Superman to distract the creature off the planet.
