Synopsis for "The Team of Luthor and Brainiac!"
Lex Luthor escapes from jail, learns Brainiac’s secret origin--that he is a humanoid computer, created by the now-destroyed computer tyrants of Yod--and frees Brainiac from the planet on which Superman had imprisoned him. Together they shrink and defeat Superman, but the Supermen Emergency Squad capture both of them, shrink them, and put them on trial in Kandor. But Superman is in a coma, and Brainiac buys both himself and Luthor their freedom by bringing him out of it. Superman enlarges himself, Luthor, and Brainiac, and sets the latter two free according to the agreement. Brainiac removes Luthor’s knowledge of his computer nature and takes him back to Lexor, where Luthor is embraced by Tharla, a woman who has come to love him.
- The Team of Luthor and Brainiac! is reprinted in Superman #245, Superman: The Greatest Stories Ever Told Vol. 2, Superman vs. Brainiac and Showcase Presents: Superman, Volume Four.
