The professor and John Henry Irons strap Superman into a device to translate the signals from the isobar directly into Superman's mind. In this way, Superman learns the "true" story of Krypton's last days from his father Jor-El. Superman makes plans to follow the signal back through the Phantom Zone to Jor-El's Krypton, and Lois insists on going with him.
