""Finally--the Man of Steel acquires a mortal weakness in "Superman's Achilles' Heel!" "Yes, gentlemen, one part of my body has become vulnerable! That's why, from now on, I must always wear this steel box on my right hand…to protect it from a fatal wound!" "He's bluffing! His real "Achilles' heel" is his left hand! When this poisoned arrow hits it, watch Superman drop dead!""
