Braniac Beats Superman... Destroys Metropolis in Process 0

This story, 'The Man Who Murdered Metropolis!' bears more than a passing resemblance to the story of several months earlier, ' The Man Who Murdered the Earth!'. This time it's Braniac instead of Luthor, and it's just Metropolis instead of the entire planet - but the gist is the same. Braniac comes up with some super crisis thingee to challenge Superman, and the Action Ace has to use trickery to tip the scales in his favor.As you can probably guess, all the same criticisms of that earlier story...
