Anybody remember the story about the evil metal controlling bacteria (heh early nanotech) that Jor-El sent off into space only to have them come to Earth and possess a Superman robot, and then an army general, and then try to possess Superman himself? If anyone remembers this can you give me a book number?

I recall that two-issue story.  The bacteria were a form of commensals.  The man infected and merged with the Superman robot was General Derwent.

I have the books at home so I can give you the issue numbers when I get home tonight.

Ah thanks much CK, I read the first one when I was like 8 years old and haven't read/seen it since.

It's up to you, Telle.

But I consider this Mr. & Mrs. Superman tale to be as lame as the rest besides the wedding story.

The basic theme is Clark and Lois combine their savings to buy a car, Clark is ga-ga over their new car, car gets stolen overnight, and Superman tracks down the car thieves.  A minor subplot is that Lois might have divulged Clark's secret ID on a tape recorder in their stolen new car.

It really was a lame story and I do not recommend it.

Again, your call.

The writers (in the 70s) seemed to write as though kryptonian medical science were no more advanced than earth in the 1970s.
