Synopsis for "Body and Mind"

Brainiac and Metallo keep working on a plot against Lex Luthor, and an army of Metallos attacks LexCorp's building. Superman intervenes and stops the robots from exploding the whole building. Luthor realizes Brainiac might be behind this attack and decides to go check the LexCorp facility in Missouri, where Metallo was supposed to be stored.

Meanwhile, the real Metallo, disguised as John Corben, visits Dr. Augustine and plants a brain probe, allowing Brainiac to control him telepathically. The pair enters the Project Cadmus facility looking for cell samples necessary to create a new host body for Brainiac. Dubbilex senses Brainiac's mind has infiltrated Cadmus, and the armed forces engage Metallo. Superman arrives at the facility after being signaled and stops Metallo, but Dr. Augustine escapes in the confusion of the battle.

Luthor arrives at the Missouri LexCorp plant and asks to see Dr. Happersen, only to discover Brainiac is in control of the entire facility and a group of armed soldiers are surrounding him.
