This story is reprinted from Action Comics #338.

Muto returns with a plan to kill his greatest enemy, the Superman of 2966. Muto raids a planet containing the greatest weapons in the universe. Superman falls for a decoy which lures him away, allowing Muto to escape. Superman tracks Muto and spots him starting a flood. The rushing water endangers three children. Superman tries to rescue the children, only to discover that they are androids. The flood waters engulf Superman exposing him to his only weakness, atomic fallout in the sea water.

Notes

Trivia

  • The title of this story also appears as the title of a Newstime article appearing on its cover, that a news vendor is seen selling during Magog's flashback scene in Kingdom Come #2. It would seem by the use of that title for the article that the people of Metropolis and the world in general during the time of the flashback were questioning whether Superman should continue as a superhero in the light of the growing atmosphere of distrust with Superman's generation of superheroes.
