Synopsis:
Maxwell Jensen experiences an accident at an atomic laboratory, and is altered into a parasitic being who can sap the strength, intelligence, and even life of a person he targets. But, since he burns up energy at an incredible rate, he chooses Superman for his victim, and leaches away the Man of Steel’s power until he bursts, unable to handle the overload.
