SUPERMAN (1939) (#1-423) (DC) #225 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Superman (1939) #225
"The Secret of the Superman Impostor!" is written by Leo Dorfman with art by Curt Swan and George Roussos. Superman's unbreakable code of never taking a life is put the test when a group of aliens use traces of his energy to produce a clone capable of stealing away his power and simultaneously making him vulnerable to mortal injury. Our story begins on the far-flung planet known as Voltran where a sinister gathering of alien scientists devises a scheme for creating a replica of the Man of Steel who will believe he is the real Superman but will secretly be under its command.

However, the clone is born without Kal El's powers and must instead rely on alien technology to steal away the real Man of Steel's abilities. Fighting crooks like teargas-lobbing Limehouse Lew proves a challenge for the Super-copy however, and every pain he feels is broadcast to our hero. Eventually Superman tracks his duplicate down and imprisons him in his Fortress of Solitude. But how can the Action Ace deal with a foe who thinks he's a hero and who can't be defeated without destroying himself? And how can our hero respond when the clone learns the truth and begs Superman to end mockery of a life?
