Synopsis
Everyone attends Jonathan Kent's funeral. Clark daydreams about going to Brainiac and beating him to a pulp, but is reminded by Lois to just never forget his father. A general and Codename: Assassin have Brainiac, and are running tests on him, trying to extract information. Superman goes to the newly-enlarged Kandor, and meets with his uncle and aunt, Supergirl's parents. She joins them, surprised that they survived. Lois pays her respects to her father at his grave, and meets up with Lucy there. Kryptonians start testing their new powers, and one kills a whale. Luthor is in his prison cell designing a rocket, when the general appears, recruiting Luthor. The general is revealed as Sam Lane, Lois and Lucy's father.
