Synopsis
Ursa unburies herself from the collapsed fortress, shields her eyes, and finds the imprisoned Tor-An. Nightwing brings battered Flamebird to his adopted mother Lois Lane in Metropolis. Lois summons Doctor Hoshi to treat Flamebird, and she uses her Doctor Light powers to help heal her. General Lane detects the outburst, finding out it's at his daughter's residence, and via cameras finds Flamebird on the rooftop. They identify her as Thara. Nightwing catches Lois up to date, and then goes back to the fortress to confront Ursa. He finds a murdered Tor-An. Ursa finds them, admits to killing Tor-An, and they talk. She leaves, as does Nightwing, but he is attacked by missiles from General Lane. Meanwhile, a bank is robbed by a Kryptonian couple.
