Synopsis for "The Club of Heroes"

Superman, Batman, Robin, as well as international heroes Legionary, Knight, Squire, Musketeer and Gaucho are all called to Metropolis by the millionaire John Mayhew. Mayhew has paid to have a headquarters built for the gathered heroes whom he has dubbed as the Club of Heroes. Mayhew tells all the gathered heroes that he will make out the deed to the property in the name of whomever the newly formed Club selects as their chairperson. The heroes decide that the best person to be their leader is whomever performs the greatest super-deed.

While all the heroes go about their usual super-heroics, they all believe that Superman should be elected chairperson and decide to put on feats that are less than spectacular so that the Man of Steel can win the position. However, Superman begins to suffer strange fainting spells and while in these states a new hero named Lightning-Man would appear and avert disasters that appeared before Superman would pass out. , As Lightning-Man puts on more super deeds and Superman fails to appear, Batman and Robin begin investigating to find out if Lightning-Man is somehow preventing Superman from going into action. Eventually Mayhew wants to invite Lightning-Man into the Club of Heroes. Batman and Robin then decide that it's best that Superman stay out of action and leave a device to monitor him when one of his fainting spells hits him. Sure enough, Lightning-Man makes more appearances, and Batman invites him into the Club of Heroes. Ultimately, due to his many super-feats, Lightning-Man is named leader of the Club of Heroes and is named the deed holder.

Batman and Robin deduce Lightning-Man's identity and return to Clark Kent's apartment. When Kent revives from his most recent fainting spell, Batman and Robin reveal that he is in reality Lightning-Man. Telling Superman to go into space, he is shocked to see a small chunk of Kryptonite orbiting around the Earth, part of a larger meteor that he smashed out of Earth's orbit days before. The truth then makes sense: each time the fragment passed over Metropolis, Superman would have one of his fainting spells. These would actually be black-outs in which Clark would become Lightning-Man go out into action, returning to his home and waking up with no memory of the feats he performed as Lightning-Man.

With the mystery solved, Batman proves it by pointing out that the "monitoring device" he left was in reality a camera that took a picture of Superman in the act. With the truth revealed, and the Kryptonite chunk dealt with Batman and Robin reveal to the Club of Heroes and Lois Lane that Lightning-Man was really Superman in disguise. The Club of Heroes then happily celebrate the fact that Superman is the leader of their group.
