Synopsis
Morty Brooks has a great idea for his next movie, and Oliver Queens sets up a meeting with Clark Kent. Superman drops the Atom off in Kandor to see if he can help enlarge it. A Kandorian experiment causes problems in Morty's laboratory, requiring Superman (with Green Arrow's help) to absorb the crazy energy it caused. Superman uses Morty's "Junkman" robot to get rid of the energy, but this brings the robot to life. The robot wants more Kandorian energy, and almost destroys the bottle city, but Superman, with the help of Green Arrow and the Atom, is able to stop it.
