Synopsis:
Lex Luthor performs a boon for the Automs, and is rewarded with a laboratory of his own. In it, he fashions three criminal androids into a Diamond Man, a Leadman, and a Kryptonite Man. With their help, he manages to return to his rocket and escapes with all three of them. The foursome begin a spree of space piracy. Superman intervenes and destroys the Diamond Man, but the triple-strength rays of the Kryptonite Man prove too much for him. However, the Lead Man sees a former Superman robot sacrificing itself heroically for its master, has a change of heart, and melts itself over the Kryptonite Man, neutralizing its radiation. Superman captures Luthor and returns him to prison on Earth.
