I remember a Justice Society of America modern story with the Earth-2 Superman and Vandal Savage.  Savage's supposed immortality was fading so he conspired to steal Kal-L's super-lifeforce to restore it.  Despite the evident aging of this Superman, the implication was he was immortal.

I remember that story. It's of my favorites. I read with my 8 year old again a few months ago. Vandal had them traveling through time and it ended up in a hand to hand fight with Supes using energy he was leeching from Power Girl ( the real Power Girl not the confused present inposter.)

That story had INCREDIBLE artwork by Wally Wood, too!  (One of my favorite MAD artists!)  

I think that two-parter was his last JSA work (his last DC job?).

Got that right, SteamTeck.

Not only was Savage cheating by using Power Girl to power himself, but the planet he set up the fight on had a kryptonite sun which was depowering and killing Superman.  Vandal took every advantage he could.  If the JSA hadn't freed Power Girl and Star-Spangled Kid hadn't whipped up a protective suit from the K-radiation, Kal-L would've been soundly defeated and dead.

That was from the time when superheroes could be SERIOUS, without being GRIM.
