In a captivating tale, writer Martin Pasko and artist Curt Swan introduced the Smallville prison designer Carl "Moose" Draper, It was Draper's love for Lana Lang and jealously of Superman that spurred him to become the gray costumed incarcerator, the Master Jailer. Pushed over the edge when the Man of Steel made enhancements to his prison for super criminals, Draper abducted Lana and detained Superman, using a power siphoning key ring that utilized the powers of the Parasite, Metallo and the Atomic Skull. Lana eventually destroyed the key ring, enabling Superman to escape and put the Master Jailer behind bars.
