Letters Column: Superman

Following the devastation of all life in the Pocket Universe by the Phantom Zone criminals, Superman takes it upon himself to rectify the situation. Hopelessly outmatched strength-wise, Superman resorts to using Gold Kryptonite (which won't affect him as he's not a native of the Pocket Universe) to eliminate the criminal's powers. But what happens next is a decision that Superman will have to live with for the rest of his life.
