Synopsis:
Superman releases Parasite from the Phantom Zone (having already released most the other Earth villains). Mon-El informs Superman that Bizarro is missing, as are Zod and his followers. Parasite reaches in and grabs Mon-El, absorbing some of his energy before being stopped by Superman. Parasite plays weak until he is left alone, and escapes, using up the last of the power he took from Mon-El. At Science Police headquarters, The Guardian introduces himself to his troops, even revealing his face and real identity. Superman visits New Krypton, and with Alura watches a parade in honor of the new planet. He tells her that Zod is missing, and she tells him she released Zod and has put him in charge of their army.
