Lex uses this opportunity to test his Lexcorp Hunter Seekers. At the end of the issue, Batman discovers that Lex is Maxie Zeus' benefactor, for the purpose of testing his robot.

uperman VS Lobo: Misery In Space

"Superman Adventures Special" #1 (Cover Date - February 1998)Superman inhales a poison unleashed by some terrorists, and leaves Earth to trace a radiation source which should cure him (though not lethal to Superman, the poison makes him a danger to the rest of Earth). Lobo is pointed to an artifact called the Nirvana Crystal, which emits the radiation source Superman requires. The two team up (not with the best of results) and head to the Maracot System.

The owner of the crystal, Squeed is determined to launch it into the sun to cleanse the universe of evil (as his wife was killed in an accident, but he assumes it to be an evil act). Superman, much to Lobo's dismay has to destroy the crystal to keep it from going into the sun. The energy from the destruction of the crystal results in Superman's ailment being cured. He leaves to go back to Earth before the council of Maracot can repay him and Lobo with their treasury. Lobo claims he'll give Superman his share of the reward, and the issue ends with him asking "Would I Lie"?

The story was written by David Michelinie.; art by John Delaney, Mike Manley; cover by John Delaney and Mike Manley
