Synopsis:
Attempting to create a duplicate of Superman that would be on his payroll, Lex Luthor does not account for the fact that Superman's DNA is not human. The resulting clone is imperfect and barely alive. During the ensuing battle between Superman and the new Bizarro, the "dust" from Bizarro's body somehow restores the recently blinded Lucy Lane's sight.
