SUPERMAN 2! Superboy 0!

Get a load of this 1963 SUPERBOY story. Three surviving villains from
Krypton's earlier days survive in the Phantom Zone, and are set free
by an astral blast. They come to Earth, were they revel in their
new-found yellow sun-induced super powers (after encountering an Earth 
animal, here a tiger, in the film, a snake), then challenge the Boy of Steel, 
but only after robbing and pillaging throughout the world.

The three scoundrels are stripped of their powers by finally being
tricked (in a last minute "bait and switch" gambit) by Superboy.
Sounds an awful lot like 1980's SUPERMAN 2 plot, huh?
