"Dead Again!" Part 2 of 11. Superman battles Conduit in an epic struggle of life and death. But how can the Man of Steel prevail against an adversary whose primary weapon is Kryptonite?
Conduit’s victory from Superman: The Man of Steel #38 is premature, as Superman recovers and reengages Conduit high above Metropolis. The two of them give and take during the battle. Conduit tries to entangle Superman in his Kryptonite-powered tendrils, but Superman escapes. Superman goes underground, ambushing Conduit, and melting molten lead on his armor. The lead helps prevent the Kryptonite radiation from affecting Superman, giving him the upper hand. Conduit distracts Superman, as he leaves to kill Clark Kent. Instead of finding Clark in Kent’s apartment, he finds his own father. His father convinces him to surrender. Meanwhile, Emil Hamilton has confirmed that the duplicate of Superman discovered in Centennial Park is the real Superman.
