Two for the Price of One....If You Can Buy That
Captain Kirk was split in two on a couple occasions, caught in some outer space continuum, so why not Superman. In this episode a South American country is on the verge of a coup. The Vice President is in cahoots with his co-conspirator to kill off the President (a benevolent, kind leader). If the President dies, this guy takes over and, in the process, takes over the mines, which are the chief source of income for the country. When a bomb is planted in the President's office, Superman intervenes (after one of the lamest of excuses Clark has ever come up with). Instead of Superman being seen as heroic, the Vice President quotes chapter and verse of the constitution and gets our guy put in prison. If he doesn't go, the President will be impeached. While in prison, Superman calls in an old friend, a physicist, who tells him of the ability for dense molecules to come apart but only after great will is brought forth. Superman proceeds to split in half, but his powers are greatly limited. Even flying becomes a great chore for the two halves. Perry, Lois, and the President go on a tour of the mines and are trapped by a dynamite explosion set off by "you-know-who." Now the question is, "Can Superman pull himself together?"
