Synopsis:
The new Insect Queen tells Lana about who she is, and what her hive is going to do. Superman goes to the moon, and finds a hive built there. Lana manages to escape, and finds herself in an old LexCorp lunar base, that the hive is built on top of. She meets up with some workers from the moon base, who are hiding from the hive. Superman is attacked by powerful insects, who overpower him and take him to the Insect Queen. She "stings" him to extract his genes. Chris Kent has a fever, and is watched by a babysitter, but Lois comes home to find him feeling worse. He shows her that his arm that has the red-sun watch is badly swollen, so she takes off the watch, and Chris goes critical with energy, which he explosively releases, blowing out part of the building.

Indexer Notes

Story continued from the previous issue and continues in the next issue. "Bridey Nelson" is an homage to former Superman writer/editor E. Nelson Bridwell. Lois also mentions another babysitter, Mrs. Schwartz, who is probably an homage to former Superman editor Julius Schwartz. Chris has posters in his room that include the covers of Justice Society of America #1 and Superman Returns: The Prequels, and he has a classic Batmobile alarm clock.
