Synopsis
Leslie, a talk show host, displays electrical powers after being fired and becomes Livewire. Lois, held captive by Leslie's half-brother Willis, attends Willis's "prom". Livewire attacks Superman and in the battle tells him that Lois is a prisoner. Meanwhile, Lois gets the drop on Willis and flees, but he pursues. Superman defeats Livewire, and she tells him where Lois is. Superman prevents Willis from shooting Lois. Two nights later, Superman attends the Shabbos dinner at the Schumans's.
