Synopsis
Superman meets a man who was given powers by his father, who got them from Tibetan monks. The man has no desire to be a super-hero, and actually has a girlfriend who hypnotizes him into forgetting about the powers. What the man doesn't know is the woman is actually hypnotizing him into giving her his powers -- until Superman stops her, that is.
