Synopsis for "The Curse of the Hangman's Noose!"
Jonathan Kent is almost strangled by a rope, vines, and a garden hose, and tells Superboy the attacks are a manifestation of the Kent family curse. A 16th century ancestor, judge Julian Kent, handed out a death sentence to a poacher, who cursed a member of the Kent family to die once every 50 years on the anniversary of his hanging. The attempts are secretly being made by the Phantom Zone villains, who focus their mental powers on a metal head from the “weird ESP planet” of Psyk, which enables them to telekinetically control the objects that almost strangled Jonathan Kent. But even after Superboy destroys the Psyk head, he later has to save his foster father from being strangled by a metal cable--just before the curse is lifted at midnight.
