Synopsis:
Clark and his mother visit Jonathan Kent's grave, as does Bizarro. Agent Liberty requests a leave of absence from the White House to investigate Doomsday's appearance. Supergirl joins with a team of Kandorians, who attack many of Superman's enemies. In one of the attacks, several members of the Science Police and guards at Stryker's Island are killed. Jim Harper applies for a job with the Science Police and is first turned down, but after the loss of some of the team, is accepted. Atlas is incognito, and observing while planning his next attack. Superman learns of the actions of the Kandorians, and confronts Zor-El, Alura, and Supergirl. Zor-El and Supergirl were unaware of the killings, but Alura knew about them, and seems to approve. Mon-El finds some new neighbors in the Phantom Zone; the captured villains.
