‘With this jewel I can rule the world. No one can stop me .’
‘You’ll never get away with this, Luthor.’ Superman replied.
‘Who’s going to stop me? You, Superman? You’re weaker than a human so long as I have this stone.’ Lex Luthor gave an evil laugh.
As he did so a dark shape loomed over them.
‘Where did you get that from? Is that your Mum’s necklace?’
‘No, Dad, it’s Kryptonite,’ Lex (Alexandria) whined.
‘Don’t worry, Dad, I’ll find a way to get it off her…I mean Luthor…and stop his evil plan,’ reassured Superman (Henry).
‘I’m sure you will, but this stone really does have magical powers,’ their Dad warned.
They stared in wonder at the green necklace.
‘What do you mean?’
‘If your mother finds you playing with it, she’ll turn into a monster and destroy you both. Give it here.’
Superman stood next to Luthor.
‘Luthor, we must unite against this threat to our world.’
‘I stand with you, Superman.’
Their Dad looked at them. ‘It’s like that is it?’
The Battle for the Future of Mankind played out to squeals of tickling and laughter.
