ALL-STAR SUPERMAN (2005) #9 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: All-Star Superman (2005) #9
"Curse of the Replacement Supermen" is written by Grant Morrison and drawn by Frank Quitely. Returning from the Bizarro World, Superman is shocked to find Metropolis has replaced him with two new champions from his dead homeworld of Krypton. Bar-El and Lilo have worked quickly, re-making not only the architecture of Superman's adopted city but also its culture and mind-set, all with an eye to providing peace and security through complete control. The Earth's new champions have little use for Kal-El, thinking him an idealist and a dreamer, like his father Jor-El.

Their tensions spill over to the Fortress of Solitude where they bully the Man of Steel, easily overcoming him with superior strength and power. After defeating Superman, the pair declare Earth to be New Krypton and force our hero into hiding. Eventually they uncover his Clark Kent identity however and another confrontation ensues. However, this time Bar-El and Lilo are struck with a sudden and debilitating illness: Kryptonite radiation poisoning, something they picked up in their long journey through space. Now that the Green K has burned through their immune systems, Superman is no longer weakened around the two and vows to show them mercy by consigning them to the Phantom Zone where their illness will be halted and they can mete out justice to the super-prisoners consigned there.
