Synopsis:
Lana is kidnapped by an insectoid creature, who is looking for Luthor. Superman participates in a baseball game for charity, and smacks a home run towards the moon, at a target there. He finds out about Lana's disappearance, and a robbery at another LexCorp site. He goes there, and is temporarily overcome by insectoids there. After reviving, he tries to get the leader to tell where Lana is, but he and the others all self-destruct instead. Superman traces dust from them to the moon. In a cavern on the moon, Lana revives in time to see the Insect Queen rebirth herself in Lana's image.
