Synopsis

Lois befriends the intelligent chimp Toto just before he is sent into orbit inside a satellite. While in orbit, the satellite passes by a collision of a uranium metorite with a kryptonite one, which causes the chimp to grow to enormous size and shoot kryptonite beams from his eyes. Because of this change, Lois re-names him Titano. Though not meaning any harm, Titano poses a threat to humanity and Superman, so the army traps the giant chimp, planning to execute him. But Lois devises a way to block Titano's kryptonite vision so Superman can send him into the past where he cannot harm anyone.
