The Kryptonite Part 4 wiki last edited by Nick-SV(ril) on 07/17/13 09:57AM View full history

The origin of Kryptonite continues! Lex Luthor's goons have Superman down for the count, while the mystery behind casino owner Tony Gallo grows.

Superman falls from the sky as Gallo communes with the Green Kryptonite. Then Superman, is viciously pummeled by Luthor's goons where he falls. He is near death when Gallo finally closes the door which cuts off the giant rock from harming Superman any more. Luthor, observing this from afar but unconnected to the affair is obviously curious.

Jimmy grabs a beaten Superman after Superman fights his way back through the baddies to the surface. Superman is bruised, beaten, and near unconsciousness.

Lois seeks Gallo's Achilles' Heel, and finds Luthor in a back alley. He beckons her into his vehicle and shows her Superman's weakness, which he insists he aims to exploit.

Jimmy commandeers a vehicle and heads back to Kent's apartment on Superman's request, only to find Clark Kent waiting for them as Superman collapses inside.
