Superboy's Big Brother, Mon-El
But it all worked out in the end, with Lois and Lori being returned, and Mon-El still waiting...
.....and Lois not becoming "The Phantom Lois Lane" for as long as Mon-El.
...as each of her tears was able to release a Phantom Zone Villain!
.... but, Jimmy didn't, being "Superman's Phantom Pal".
Mon-El had the missing piece of the puzzle, thanks to being an observer in the Phantom Zone, which saved Superman's life.
...but, instead, Quex-Ul lost his own powers after realizing Superman was trying to prove his innocence of the crimes (and Quex-Ul also got amnesia as well, with Superman getting him a job at the Daily Planet to help him).
Quex-Ul got free while Mon-El was still trapped!
Yet again, Mon-El wasn't all that helpful, and this was wearing on the Daxamite lad with the real name of Lar Gand.
...as Superman tried to save the planet from his incredible Fortress of Solitude and the menace of Dominus in the "Fortress of Fear" by Roy Thomas, Ross Andru and Romeo Tanghal.
Superman did save Earth, all without Mon-El's help.
Phantom Zone, trapping Superman there....with Mon-El taking Superman to an area far within the Zone, where it was rumored that an escape from the Zone was available (but, Mon-El couldn't take it, as if he escaped, he'd still be dying of the lead poisoning Superboy had inflicted upon him...).
