Taking Hercules to one of his secret labs, Luthor uses a device to teach him English and educate him on the 20th Century. Hercules is interested in news broadcasts about Superman. And Luthor intends to "tell" Hercules all about the Man of Steel after they get back "his" gold. Later, when Hercules learns that he was tricked by Luthor into committing a crime, he saves the Man of Steel by throwing a chunk of Green Kryptonite.
