Mr. Mxyztplk teams with the Prankster and Lex Luthor to humiliate Superman by making "plastic proxies" (androids) which make it appear as if Lois has jilted Superman for Mxyztplk, make it seem that Superman has falsely accusing Luthor, and make Superman look like the victim of the pranks of the Prankster. But just as the public begins to wonder why they ever admired him, Superman turns the tables on the trio.
