Synopsis for "Bloodsport!"

Jimmy Olsen is having lunch with Lucy Lane, when a maniac named Bloodsport, begins firing wildly into the restaurant rambling about the days when "Mickey and he got their cans shot off in 'Nam". Cops converge on the scene, but Bloodsport hops on his motorcycle and speeds off.

Superman arrives and consults with Metropolis Special Crimes Unit inspector, Maggie Sawyer. He uses his infrared vision to trace the heat signature from Bloodsport's bike. Superman tracks him to the Kenmore Bowling Alley and engages him. Bloodsport begins teleporting high-tech weaponry into his hands, including a rifle that fire Kryptonite needles. Superman knows that the only two people aware of Kryptonite are Lex Luthor and Metallo. Jimmy Olsen arrives to try and help Superman out, but Bloodsport escapes.

Lex Luthor is indeed the one who hired Bloodsport to kill Superman, but he had not counted on Bloodsport's insanity. As the civilian casualty rate rises, Luthor sends his own armored team out to stop Bloodsport.

Superman faces him again in the streets of Metropolis. He uses his heat-vision to ionize the air around Bloodsport's hands, disrupting the teleportation wave that allows the maniac to materialize his weapons. Luthor’s team also arrives prepared to take down Bloodsport.

Bloodsport's brother, Michael DuBois, arrives. Although Bloodsport spoke as if he were in the Vietnam War, in truth it was his brother, Michael, who served and lost his arms and legs. Michael calms his brother down; Bloodsport's rampage ends.
