Lois finds him with his hand on a red-hot burner, unharmed, and realizes that his powers are coming back. She gets his costume and tells him to "Go Get 'em". Intergang sends The Puzzler over to the Daily Planet to kill Clark Kent, but Superman crashes in to stop her rampage. They fight in the street until Superman defeats her. Toyman and Luthor hear the news that Superman has returned, and Luthor steps up his artifact retrieval. Superman's powers are still slowly returning, when he is attacked by a group of villains, with Jimmy covering the story.
