Synopsis for "Super Friends"

Bruce Wayne, Lex Luthor, and Clark Kent encounter one another at a business dinner, where Bruce and Luthor are wooing the military for an exclusive contract with their respective companies. After a few minutes of conversation, both Bruce and Clark detect a bomb being planted under a table, and leap into action - Superman flying the bomb into the sun, and Batman pursuing the bombers.

Immediately after the bombers are caught, a small earthquake hits Gotham City. Maxie Zeus claims credit, and threatens to destroy the city with a much larger quake if his ludicrous ransom is not met. While Superman and Batman investigate the earthquakes together, Lex Luthor presents his own solution: Hunter-Seekers, a squad of highly advanced drones controlled from a LexCorp command center.

The Hunter-Seekers discover Zeus' hideout shortly after Superman and Batman do, but - per Luthor's secret commands - attack Superman instead of Zeus. While Superman battles the Hunter-Seekers, Batman subdues Zeus and his gang, and recovers the device that Zeus had been creating earthquakes with.

After interrogating Zeus, Batman realizes that Luthor had been responsible for both the bomb and the earthquake device, all to create ideal circumstances to demonstrate his Hunter-Seekers in action. Once Zeus has been taken into custody, Batman confronts Luthor with this information, and blackmails Luthor into withdrawing LexCorp's bid for the military contract.

Superman later confronts Batman about his actions, but Batman puts his old comrade's mind at ease, promising that WayneTech will also withdraw its bid.



Notes

  • This issue is the technical debut of Superman and Lex Luthor in the DC Animated Universe, though it was written and published before Superman: The Animated Series had begun production. Thus, much like Superman & Batman Magazine, this issue features a more literal adaptation of elements from "mainstream" comics at the time, such as Superman's "mullet" hairstyle and Luthor's younger, redheaded clone body. [1]

Trivia

  • General Turgidson is probably a reference to the warmongering character of the same name from Stanley Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove.
