Synopsis:
Mon-El, John Henry Irons, Jimmy Olsen, and the Guardian all remember the trust that Superman has placed in them before leaving for New Krypton. Mon-El gives Jimmy a new signal watch, attuned to his hearing. Superman had asked the Guardian to help Mon-El with his new secret identity, and thus Jonathan Kent joins the Science Police. Mon-El patrols Metropolis and confronts Rampage. He takes her up a mile into the air and drops her to the ground, knocking her out. The Guardian and Steel arrive on the scene, and warn him that she could have died, but Guardian tells Steel that he will keep an eye on Mon-El. Back at the Science Police as Kent, he meets Billi Harper, who just moved back from Gotham to get to know Jim Harper, her great uncle.
