It all starts when Superman lends his indestructible super suit to Professor Carlton so he can test his dangerous atomic robot called Metallo (not THE Metallo, he's a year out, but still the third entity in Superman's life to bear that name; it's pretty popular). Metallo III is a bust.

In the resulting chaos, Carlton - actually Lex Luthor in a Mission Impossible mask - switches out the super suit with an imitation. Over the course of the next few hours, the suit gets ripped to shreds by the threats Superman inevitably faces!

A week later, Prof Carlton presents Superman's new uniform.

Superman lay dying when he suddenly flies into action and gets Luthor to blurt out the details of his scheme.

The Silver Age DC writers were able to imagine such convoluted things. To their credit, they chose to work in comics when they could've made more money as corporate or government spin doctors. "But we did withdraw our troops as we promised last election. Those troops over there now? They're robots the Soviets created to make us look bad. Fortunately, we anticipated this and have sent our own robot counter-troops...should be arriving any day now..."

Wow, this costume makes the Spider-Hero suit look good.

I'd say the costume makes him look fat, but with the art his normal suit isn't very flattering either.

His new costume could have been worse; it could be a superman t-shirt and blue jeans and work boots combined with a buzz cut.

No cape.

Nyaahhh, THAT'D never work....
