Synopsis:
John Kiley, a wealthy philanthropist who is really a member of the Anti-Superman Gang, fakes his own death and induces Clark Kent to reveal that he is Superman to fulfill Kiley's
"dying wish". Kiley and the gang lure Clark Kent into a Kryptonite deathtrap. Using super-ventriloquism, Kent summons Supergirl and the Superman Emergency Squad to save him. With an elaborate ruse, the heroes convince Kiley and the Anti-Superman Gangsters that they have been having an hallucination and that Kent and Superman are not one and the same.
