Nuclear Man was created using genetic material harvested from one of Superman's hairs. Lex Luthor get this hair from a museum using bolt cutters. He cuts the top and bottom off to get at the part in the middle. He takes only the middle part with him. Genetic material is only found in the follicle of a hair, which would be at one end.

A television version pieced together by Viacom and running 94 minutes adds to the "Round-the-World" battle sequence between Superman and Nuclear Man, among other things, a scene in the Soviet Union. See more »
SUPERMAN IV: THE QUEST FOR PEACE pits the Man of Steel against Nuclear Man, Lex Luther's newest creation while ridding the world of nuclear weapons. This is easily the worst of the SUPERMAN movies, and it was doomed to fail right from the start. Cut from its original 134-minute version, it is full of plot holes resulting in a movie with some scenes that just don't make any sense, but even with the extra 45 minutes intact, the movie still wouldn't work because the special effects are cheap and ridiculous, and it shows. Unless you are a diehard fan of the Superman genre, this movie should be avoided.
