Synopsis for "Operation: False Front!"
Lex Luthor traps Superman in his warsuit, whose automatic defense mechanisms cancel out his attempts to damage or escape it, and whose monitors relay back his location to Luthor, watching on a viewscreen. Moreover, the warsuit casts an illusion that makes it appear to be Lex Luthor in the suit, rather than Superman. But Superman writes a message in Kryptonese on Jimmy Olsen's wall, using his heat vision. Jimmy deciphers the message (which Luthor cannot understand) and summons Supergirl, who disguises herself as an alien warrior come to Earth for a grudge match with Superman. Superman appears, claims to be Lex Luthor (and appears to be such, to the crowds that watch him), and "defeats" the alien, saying he has come on Superman's behalf, and giving testimonials to Superman all the while. Luthor, watching and hearing this, cannot stand the thought of "himself" saying nice things about Superman, and frees his foe from the warsuit by remote control. Supergirl emerges from her disguise. Later, Luthor muses to himself that the warsuit analyzed Superman's physical being and transmitted the information to him, which he intends to use against the Man of Steel in their next encounter.
