Synopsis for "The School For Superman Assassins!"
Members of the Galaxy Crimeteers train themselves as assassins by practicing on a Superman android. When Zunial succeeds in killing the android, he is given the opportunity to kill the real Superman. The assassin arrives on Earth and apparently kills Superman using Kryptonite radio waves. Zunial brings the Man of Steel's lifeless body back to Zarria where the other criminals celebrate his victory. The Peace Vigilantes of Zarria raid the headquarters of the Crimeteers. In the process they reactivate the Superman-android. Since the android is programmed to act like Superman, it revives the real Man of Steel, sacrificing itself in the process. Superman then tries to thwart Zunial's destruction of all written records on Zarria. While he fails to stop the destruction of the microfilm on which the records exist, he memorizes them at super speed and is able to reconstruct the data.
