Synopsis:
Superman and Atlas are fighting on the streets of Metropolis, with Lois and Jimmy watching. Superman is losing, and not sure why he is so weak. Lana Lang is monitoring the fight from LexCorp headquarters, and tries to activate Team Luthor to help Superman, but finds that aiding Superman violates the terms of her contract, and is fired. Jimmy spots a mysterious man watching from above at the edge of a building, and photographs him. Supergirl hears the fight, and arrives to help out, only to be blasted with a ray from a satellite, controlled by the mysterious man. Superman tells Supergirl to find out more about the ray, while he continues the battle with Atlas. Atlas knocks him unconscious, but then Krypto arrives.
