Synopsis for "The Great Society"

Doctor Psycho hypnotizes all of the passengers on a plane arriving in Metropolis, where they seize upon Superman memorabilia, seeming to worship him. At home, Clark and Lois Lane discuss the nature of Superman's recent loss of control over himself, but he soon hears trouble downtown and leaves to investigate.
He finds Sharpnel robbing a bank. While the two battle, Doctor Psycho continues to cause havoc in Metropolis, to the chagrin of his employer, Lex Luthor. Luthor orders Black Adam to bring Psycho back. During the fight, Superman finds himself distracted by his group of psychologically manipulated 'fans,' as many of them attempt suicide in order to be saved by him. Lois questions a witness about the cause of the strangely manipulated citizens. When she discovers that the enemy is Doctor Psycho, she makes a call to Lana Lang.
Meanwhile, Black Adam apprehends Doctor Psycho, while Superman resumes his efforts to defeat Shrapnel. A captured Shrapnel explains that he is merely a pawn of someone else. Afterwards, Black Adam expresses distaste for Doctor Psycho's methods as Superman confronts them.
