Synopsis:
John Kiley, a wealthy philanthropist who is really a member of the Anti-Superman Gang, fakes his own death and induces Clark Kent to reveal that he is Superman to fulfill Kiley's
"dying wish". Kiley and the gang lure Clark Kent into a Kryptonite deathtrap. Using super-ventriloquism, Kent summons Supergirl and the Superman Emergency Squad to save him.
