They target Lois and Clark and after making everyone think they killed Lois with Bad Brain's cremation machine, the Electrowhammy", they kidnap her and she becomes part of their collection. Superman puts the pieces together and realises who is behind everything and when he attempts to capture the Lakes, they use Lois as a bait to capture him.
