Metallo is a criminal whose brain was transplanted into a robot body powered by Green Kryptonite and is an enemy of Superman. He escaped from Stryker's Island Penitentiary and fled to Metropolis. During another fight into the city, Metallo was decked into a bus but he opened his chest receptacle and exposed Superman to his Green Kryptonite. Superman fell to his knees. Firestorm arrived and tried to turn Metallo's Kryptonite into lead. However, he couldn't remember the chemical formula for Green Kryptonite despite sitting through a boring and very long lecture about it in the morning. He turned it into Red Kryptonite. Superman went into a rage and tackled Metallo into the bus, setting off a small explosion. He tried again but it turned Gold. Superman was stricken with amnesia. Metallo nailed him with a right hook then jabbed but missed. Firestorm tried again but turned it Black. Superman was split in two.

The evil black suited Superman tackled the good white suited Superman just as Metallo lunged at them. He fell on his face. Firestorm tried again but it turned Pink. Superman turned into a Superwoman then punched Metallo several times then piledrived a car into him. Firestorm remembered he wrote the formula on his right wrist and successfully changed the Kryptonite into lead. Metallo went offline and dropped. Superman put him over his shoulder and prepared to return him to his cell at Stryker's Island Penitentiary.
