Hamilton, Swan and Klein conclude the Death of Luthor storyline in Action 319 (Dec. 64).
Much of this issue is a Kafkaesque trial for Superman, as nothing he says or does has any effect on the Lexorians, who are simply going through the motions before executing him. Their preferred method turns a person into stone.
During the trial, Superman learns that no autopsy was performed on Luthor, at his own request. This makes Superman suspicious enough to bust out of his cell to investigate further.
The pills make Luthor’s plan clear. He will be in his death-like coma for the duration of the trial, and wake up after Superman has been executed for killing him.
Superman gets Lex out of his trance, and even reveals the pills he used, but to no avial. Oh, the charges against him are dropped, but everyone still believes in Lex. Superman is forced to return to Earth, while Luthor stays on Lexor with Ardora.
Donna Storm, the villain from the previous issue, returns to plague Linda Danvers, and Supergirl, in this Dorfman and Mooney story.
Donna feels she needs to be the best at everything, but has no prblem cheating to achieve this. She gets scientists at her father’s lab to do her chemistry work, and has a mini tape recorder in her earrings, feeding her for presentations.
Supergirl decides to outdo her, because that is the maturest way to handle the situation. When Donna spends a lot of money on pictures for a presentation in biology, Supergirl takes the rest of the class to Atlantis for a lesson by Lori Lemaris.
Donna is even more upset with Linda, and her friendship with Supergirl, after this. She steals some jewels, and plants them in Linda’s room. They are found, and Linda gets expelled.
But Donna Storm makes her big mistake, when Linda comes to confront her. She admits everything, bragging to Linda about it, but her words get broadcast to the entire campus.
Supergirl had called on the Legion of Super-Heroes for help, and Shrinking Violet had re-wired her tape recorder earrings to become a broadcast device.
Linda’s expulsion is rescinded, and Donna Storm gets the boot instead. She never appears again.
Considering the self-esteem issues that Donna clearly has, after the public humiliation of her activities being exposed, and the, likely, forthcoming criminal charges, I expect she just killed herself.
