Years back, "govt" on Mxyzptlk's "world" forbid M. to pester Superman any more, and he wasn't a killer, anyway. So SM's baffled. Meanwhile, various imp super-heroes are on the case from the other end, they track down the source of the killer toys and magical traps, and yup, it's M., frustrated and defying the "govt" and hoping to hide that he's gone criminal and wants to kill children on Earth to make Superman look like a failure. Chase and fight scene. LIH (Legion of Imp Heroes) put M. behind bars without his powers, send a magical comm. to SM telling him the menace is over, etc. He's a bit put out that he didn't stop it, but "Hey, you can't be the hero ALL the time," SG says, and "You saved all those children.
