The Parasite Twins have arrived at Lois and Clark's apartment, because they want Lois to call out for help from Superman. This looks like a job for...Mister Mxyzptlk? The fifth dimensional imp rushes to the scene, but not before taking Eddie Berganza to task for failing to provide him with a decent logo. He then arives simultaneously with Superman and accidentally knocks the Man of Steel into one of the Parasites, causing him to be drained - the twins now have confirmation that Superman and Clark Kent are one and the same person - they must now take this information to Ruin. Knowing that Superman has a lot of darkness and horror to face in the near future, Mxyzptlk delays the twins long enough for the hero to get back on his feet, and warns Superman that he has about three quarters of an hour before they get back to Ruin.
