- Bizarro attacks Metropolis, with the Science Police confronting him, and running out of options. But Mon-El comes in to join the fight, which surprises everyone as he had been thought to be dead. The fight results in a girl being trapped in a car about to blow, but Mon-El's friend Mitch tells him to keep fighting, while Mitch proceeds to rescue her by eating his way to the car. After rescuing the girl, he says there's no use hiding anymore, and turns off his cloaking using his Legion flight ring. Flashing back during the fight, Mon-El remembers returning to Smallville, meeting with Conner Kent and Martha Kent, and discussing all that has happened, and how he needs to approach being a hero now. He decides he needs to be more of an inspiration, like Superman. And since his costume was trashed, Martha makes a new uniform for him, more based on Superman's. Back in the fight, Mon-El finds he has lost his powers again, just as the Parasite joins the fight.
Story continued from the previous issue, and continues in the next issue. Debut of Mon-El's new uniform.
