Negative Superman flies off to do negative stuff, like changing into Clark Kant, irritating Lois Lane. Titano grabs both Clarks, slamming them together, which reunites Superman into one person.

More coffee has Superman sprightly again, as Parasite comes across Lois Lane and is immediately smitten. Superman challenges Parasite to a race, draining him of his powers.
