Synopsis:
Superman and Lois are in the Fortress, as Superman releases Mon-El from the Phantom Zone, as it is being destroyed. But Mon-El is still dying from lead poisoning; Superman has to find a solution now. He zooms to his lab to see what he can think of, when he spots a vial with a Legion symbol on it that says "Mon-El Drink me". Even though Superman has never seen it before, he goes ahead and gives it to Mon-El, who recovers, apparently cured. Later, Superman and Lois discuss the situations, including New Krypton. The Guardian remembers back to meeting Tellus, and decides to do something about it. Superman talks to both his foster mother and Lois about what he has decided to do next: Leave Earth temporarily for New Krypton, both to help the people there and to keep an eye on Zod. He arranges for Mon-El, Steel, the Guardian, and Jimmy Olsen to handle things while he's gone.
