Synopsis
While on an experimental rocket, Clark and Lois encounter the alien Brainiac, who plans to shrink and bottle the great cities of Earth and then use them to repopulate his planet. Superman gets inside Brainiac’s ship when the villain snatches Metropolis and there finds a bottle with the Kryptonian city of Kandor. He enters the bottle and with the help of a scientist there restores the cities of Earth while Brainiac lies in suspended animation for his trip home. Because there is not enough power to restore Kandor, Superman places the city in his Fortress, as Brainiac rockets away empty-handed.

Synopsis
Lois accidentally releases from Kandor the criminal Zak-Kul, who traps Superman in Kandor and takes over his life. Lois marries Zak-Kul thinking him Kal-El, but he tries to kill Lois because she keeps asking him Kal-El's secret id. Kal-El, trapped inside the "Krypton City," uses one of the three remaining specks of Illium-349 to shrink himself even smaller and slip between the atoms of Krypton City's jar, then uses the second speck to enlarge both himself and the third speck. Zak-Kul meanwhile futilely attempts to hide from Superman by disguising himself as a mild-mannered reporter.

Indexer Notes

Kandor is referred to only as "Krypton City." It is depicted as a very wide-necked bottle like the Swan drawn newspaper strip version, not the Plastino narrow-necked comic magazine version.
