Bates, Swan and Chiaramonte continue with Brainiac’s assault in Action 490 (Dec. 78).
The result of being exposed to the sight of Krypton’s explosion is that Superman is suffering from an uncontrollable power overload, which strikes at uncontrollable times – like when he is in the middle of a broadcast with Lana Lang.
Superman tries to wear himself out, expending as much energy as possible, but nothing can drain him enough.
Brainiac captures Superman with his force field in the midst of one of his uncontrollable outbursts, and sends him shooting towards the Justice League satellite as the issue ends.
The story concludes next issue.
