The thief falls prey to another, as things go.  But this one is bad, a former companion of Darkseid, whose innate ability allows him to dominate and control people, and have them fulfill his worst desires.  Eventually, he proved too depraved even for Darkseid, and Sleez fled to Earth.

He uses Barda’s own mega-rod to take her down, and once out, she will wake completely under his control.

Clark Kent has been investigating mysterious cases of good health in the street people living near to Sleez, and follows a radiation trail to the creature, who is unaware of his side-effects.  Superman breaks Barda of Sleez’s control, but when he stops her from killing him, she believes he is just one of Sleez’s games.  Sleez takes advantage of their fight to capture them both.

The story concludes in the next issue.
