DC COMICS PRESENTS (1978) #84 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: DC Comics Presents (1978) #84
Guest-starring the Challengers of the Unknown. Art by Jack Kirby and Alex Toth. Written by Bob Rozakis and inked by Greg Theakston. "Give Me Power...Give Me Your World!" Before Superman's father, Jor-El, created the Phantom Zone, Krypton used to send its criminals into orbit around the planet. When Krypton exploded, many of the criminals were killed but some-made their way to Earth just like Kal-El did. One of those arch-villains was Zo-Mar, who was capable of enslaving mens' minds merely by showing them a special symbol drawn on a card. The card shows up in the offices of the Daily Planet, delivered by the Challengers of the Unknown. The four international adventurers call for Jimmy Olsen in an effort to find Superman, realizing that the symbol on the card is Kryptonian. But when Jimmy doesn't show, Clark Kent offers to put a call in to the Man of Steel for them.

When Superman arrives, the Challengers relate a story of a terrified businessman who happened to see the card and committed suicide despite their best efforts. But when the Challs show Superman where the card came from, they instead lead him to a house in a small town where Zo-Mar has taken up residence. To the Man of Steel's horror, the Challengers are revealed to be under Zo-Mar's control and soon so is Superman. Ordered to ruin the town as a first step toward world conquest, Superman can't help but comply. But being a true hero, he finds a way to turn the tables on the Kryptonian criminal!
