Kupperberg, Swan and Hunt give Terra-Man his last major pre-Crisis appearance in Action 557 (July 1984).
The story begins with a wild west showdown between Terra-Man and Superman, although we learn that this is just a robot in a robot town, which Terra-Man uses to amuse himself. But he is bored, and comes to Earth to perform a series of pointless robberies, stealing the same paintings over and over, just to bait Superman.
Terra-Man leaves word as to where the paintings are located, and then, while Lana Lang broadcasts their retrieval by Inspector Henderson, Terra-Man bursts in to steal them again, live on tv.
The mid-air robbery is fun, and I wouldn’t have minded this sequence extended to be a story unto itself. At least it serves as the climax to this tale.
Terra-Man has only cameos between now and the reboot of Superman. And despite a couple of efforts at re-booting this character, the original remains the best.
