Synopsis

Influenced by crystals Mordru created in Superboy's time and cast by Superboy into space, Chameleon Boy takes Ultra Boy's place and visits Superboy. Ultra Boy alerts Brainiac 5 and Lightning Lad to the switch and they visit Superboy as well, but Chameleon Boy, as Superboy, assures them that he has everything under control. Superboy is able turn the tables on Cham and to reverse the effects of his exposure to Mordru's crystals by momentarily burying him.
