Superman Should Have Worn His Mask

In Action Comics 363 and 364, Superman is infected with “Virus X” while under the influence of a hypnotist first introduced in Action 362. Ultimately, Superman is cured by white kryptonite thrown from Bizarro world. Perhaps adequate social distancing from hypnotists would have prevented this mishap.

Action Comics No. 438 – A Monster Named Lois Lane!

These DC comics always had such great covers, but then you actually read the story, and the story hinges on Lois Lane having a cold and Superman finding a cure using “advanced Kryptonian science.”

A jewel from space turns Lois Lane into a super-powered beast-woman. Superman pretends to develop similar monster-like symptoms in order to trap and subdue her but she sees through his disguise. Finally Superman realizes that Lois developed the condition only because she had a cold which lowered her immunity to the space jewel. Using ‘advanced Kryptonian science’ Superman devises a ‘miniature cold curer’ that restores Lois to normal.
