In space, Superman is attempting to escort terrorist Mr. Mind into custody at Justice League headquarters but is being pursued by bounty hunters Lobo and Jonas armed with a red sun ray-blaster. They want to take Mr Mind instead, dead or alive, to gangster Boss Kack to receive a reward. A wounded Superman crashes into the back seat of Space Cabby's cab and tells him to step on the gas. Superman then uses the radio to call for backup.
Lobo stops the cab with a grenade and also treacherously disposes of Jonas to avoid having to share the reward, but becomes embroiled in a fight amongst some asteroids with the recently arrived Hawkman. Lobo leads Hawkman into a trap, but a recovered Superman intervenes to save him and the fight continues. In the cab, Mr Mind escapes and Space Cabby is unable to recapture him. In the ongoing fight outside, Mr Mind, a small worm, is accidentally trodden on and squashed to a pulp by Lobo. The latter takes some of the remains as evidence of death and leaves to collect his reward. Superman, with the remainder of Mr Mind, returns to League headquarters.
On Boss Kack's planet, Lobo learns that worms can regenerate their bodies so that no reward will be paid without the rest of the remains.
In the Watchtower, Superman and Hawkman watch Mr Mind recover in a glass cell. They also do not have the spare cash to pay their fare to Cabby but, as Hawkman has kept a piece of coal from an asteroid, Superman is able to squeeze it into a diamond to give to Cabby.
- Lobo calls Hawkman "Foghorn", most likely referring to the Looney Tunes character, Foghorn Leghorn.
- Lobo also calls Hawkman "Big Bird", referencing the Sesame Street character.
- When complaining about his shift in the opening, Space Cabbie mentions Tamaran, the home planet of Teen Titan heroine Starfire.
