During a conflict between Superman and Lobo over Mister Mind, Hawkman responded to Superman's call for back up and nailed Lobo. Lobo led Hawkman to an Abandoned Anthracite Mine and planned to ambush him. Lobo threw a mining rig at Hawkman but also fell over as he gloated. Lobo reached Hawkman's mace first and fired a blaster off but Superman arrived and took the hit. He pointed out the mine was near a yellow sun and he had recharged off of it. The battle continued on while Space Cabbie searched for Mister Mind in his Space Cab. Just as Cabbie recaptured him, Lobo crashed onto the hood and Mind went flying outside only to be stepped on by Lobo. Lobo took the upper half of his remains to collect on a bounty and tossed Superman the tail then took off. Luckily, Hawkman discovered a piece of anthracite was stuck in his wing. Superman used his super strength to crush into a well sized diamond to cover for Cabbie's fare and his totaled cab.
