Synopsis

At the Superman Museum, The Parasite intentionally bumps into Lex Luthor in order to steal his voice and command ability. When Superman is knocked down by Luthor's weapons under the control of The Parasite, Luthor transfers Superman's life-force into the Superman statue made from an asteroid that sits outside the museum. The statue knocks The Parasite out of his hovercraft and catches him. When the Parasite tries to drain the powers of the statue, The Parasite's power is drained instead.
