Synopsis:
Arion [of Atlantis] tracks down Bill Knightly, who has been pretending to be Arion in recent years, and kidnaps him. Superman finds Metropolis overrun by young New Gods, and their playtime is causing damage. He rounds them up, as Lightray arrives, letting Superman know they deviated from a field trip of the inner planets. Arion learns from Knightly how he had died in the present age. Lightray senses turmoil in Superman, and urges him to take the night off. After spending time talking with Lana and then Lois, he sits on the moon to think, but on returning to Metropolis, he can't help but rescue a little girl who fell off of a building ledge. Lightray and the Young Gods leave, but two of them are hiding in Metropolis. Arion and Superman meet, Superman tells him that he won't quit. Arion then attacks him.

Story continued from the previous issue and continues in the next issue. In promotional materials, this is called chapter two of the second half of "Camelot Falls". On the DC Message Boards on 2007-10-02 and the next day, Kurt talks about the art, saying that Merino is sharing the pencils with Pacheco, and "doing quite a bit more than layouts, but not full pencils."
