Superman: Precisely! And there's only one thing on that entire satellite capable of killing the Warzoon one at a time — the control helmet in the command console!\\

** In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'' an alien race known as the Warzoons built Warworld for the purpose of conquering the universe. However, their super-weapon was the cause of their destruction.
--->'''Superman:''' Do you remember that mountain of graves we noticed on Warworld? That's what gave me the answer! The Warzoons weren't buried in a mass grave as there'd be if the race was destroyed by some great illness!\\
'''Supergirl:''' You're right! The Warzoons must've died one by one! They buried each other — except for the last one buried by the peace-loving Largas!

'''Supergirl:''' The massive energy-drain must've proven too much for their minds to endure! One by one they were destroyed by the very weapon their warlike race had spent untold centuries creating — one by one, they died — victims of massive cerebral hemorrhage — and their own insatiable lust for power!

** Played straight just before the ComicBook/{{New 52}} Relaunch: Luthor gains omnipotence and learns Superman's Clark Kent. However, he can only hold into that power if he never uses it to hurt anyone. ''Ever''. Not even Superman. The knowledge increases his anger and his desire to kill Superman, leading him to lose it all, and for good measure, sends him spiraling into the PhantomZone.
