"Superman: Mxyzpixilated (#2.8)" (1997)
Clark Kent: What do you want?
Mr. Mxyzptlk: Laughs! You see, for centuries now, I've been pitting my interdimensional magic against schmoes who thought they could go 15 rounds with the old master! You know the stories about genies, imps leprechauns?
[Mr Mxyzptlk levitates Streaky the cat, which Clark flies up and catches]

Mr. Mxyzptlk: You, my friend, are the ultimate challenge! We're going to have very merry games, you and I!
[starts flying around in circles]
Superman: A game has rules! Your stunts are just random idiocy!
Mr. Mxyzptlk: Okay, I'll give you a rule! If you can make me say, spell or otherwise reveal my name backwards and I'll split, until our dimensions come into alignment again in... oh, three months, give or take.
Superman: I can't even say your name forwards - how am I supposed to say it BACKwards?

Clark Kent: What's it going to take to get rid of you, for EVER?
Mr. Mxyzptlk: You always trick me into doing the same thing once, but this time you're going to have to make me do it TWICE, in a row! Which means I can say Kltpzyxm all I want, as long as I break it - KILL-PIX-YEEZ-SUM - up! HA! If you beat me, then I'm history! Gone! Finito! Bye-bye! But if I win, then I got me a new stable boy! Deal?
Clark Kent: Whatever you want. I quit.
Mr. Mxyzptlk: Huh?... You don't mean it.
Superman: Oh, yes I do. Shut off the lights when you're done, will you?
Mr. Mxyzptlk: [pulling on Superman's cape] Hey! HEY! You can't just walk out! If you do, your friends will stay mindless beasts!
Superman: They don't seem to mind.

[last lines]
Mr. Mxyzptlk: [raging at a model of Superman] Oh, you... you... I'm not done with you! NOT BY A LONG SHOT! I'll find a loophole, somehow, someday!
