Synopsis for "The Black Ring, Part 4"
Lex Luthor's team approaches another source of ring energy, traveling through Gorilla Grodd's territory in the Congo. Grodd becomes aware of them, and decides to take action by eating the brain of Cardington, a man who worked for Luthor, to get an advantage. Gorillas then raid the team and take the Lois android. After Grodd tries (and fails) to eat Lois, he takes command of her and asks about Luthor's weaknesses.
Grodd then attacks the party; Luthor challenges Grodd to personal combat, and Grodd cuts Luthor's head off and sticks it into his mouth. The head electrifies him, revealing that this Luthor was also an android. Several weeks earlier, Cardington was hired by Luthor and fed false information, with the intention of feeding said info to Grodd later.
Now in the heart of Grodd's lair, Luthor and Spalding remove their ape costumes. They take the energy they're seeking and leave; Grodd soon wakes up, quite furious. As they take off, Grodd shoots Lex in the chest, and Lex falls to his death. There, Death (of Sandman fame) meets him near his body.
