A test of strength between these two Super Heroes ends up with Steel Boy stretched across Steel Man’s shoulders, then ultimately on the ground. Steel Man advises him to stay down, but Steel Boy believes he can beat him. After receiving a great deal of punishment, Steel Boy is put into a sleeper, but released just before going out. He gives a half-hearted elbow to Steel Man, only to have Steel Man tear his costume and tell him he’s not worthy of it yet. As Steel Boy struggles, Steel Man tells him he doesn’t deserve the “S” on his chest and slowly begins tearing it. Steel Boy reacts as if he is a small child who has had his favorite toy taken away.

Not faster than a locomotive, not able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, well, you know where this is going. Steel Boy just doesn’t have the same strength and skills as Steel Man.

Steel Boy is left flat on his back on the mats. Steel Man takes the “S” from Steel Boy’s costume and puts it on his chest, not to be nice, but to reinforce his superiority. Steel Man plants one of his boots right on the center of the “S” proving he is the only true Superman.
