Synopsis for "How Do You Kill a Superman?"
To save Kandor from civil war, Superman has agreed to become its king, and live in the bottle city. However and without explanation, Superman repeatedly emerges in the outer world and acts irresponsibly. The new attitude of the Man of Steel is noticed by Batman, who learns pf the mysterious events after a quick visit to Kandor.
Superman's actions create chaos in the entire world and Batman is asked by the President of the United States to kill the Man of Steel. Batman first tries to get help from the Kandorians, but they are unable to restrain Superman, leading to a confrontation between Batman and Superman, in which Batman uses a poison needle to kill Superman, who is absolutely vulnerable while in Kandor. However, after dead, Superman's body starts to grow until it breaks out of Kandor. It is then revealed that the responsible for all the unexplicable events is a sentient zirkonian cat from Superman's zoo at the Fortress of Solitude. Superman returns to life once his body is out of Kandor and he takes care of the evil animal. Things return to normal and everyone moves on with their lives.
