He's Filled with Gamma Radiation

What a thankless job Superman has. He must be the savior of the world but there is only one of him. At an experimental nuclear power plant it appears there will be a meltdown (or whatever it was called in 1953). One of the scientist who tried to switch control rods lies in front of the machine (it's interesting that they brought protective suits but left their backs and legs pretty much exposed). There is a civil defense alert and Metropolis is going to have to be evacuated (although it is obvious that it is too late). Superman come to the rescue, switches the rods, but becomes contaminated himself. Everything he touches is contaminated. When he passes his hand over some flowers, they wither and die. To make it worse, Superman glows in the dark. He is suddenly in exile because if he helps someone he will likely kill them. Of course, Clark Kent disappears at the same time, supposedly following Superman. Of course, every crime boss on the planet begins to commit all variety of atrocity. Superman begins to read every book there is on nuclear energy as the scientists try to find a cure. the realities of physics were really never an issue in this series. Still, it's quite an interesting tale.
