Synopsis for "Missing in Action"

Metropolis is under a blackout after Emil Hamilton's attempt to save Superman from Mister Z, and chaos breaks loose in the street. Gangbuster and Thorn take care of the lootings. In the middle of the chaos, Lex Luthor II, the heir to LexCorp's empire, arrives at Metropolis, reassuring the citizens that he will help them overcome this crisis.

Meanwhile, Superman, suffering from amnesia, walks in to an outpost in the Antarctic, carrying the body of Mister Z in his arms. The French men inspect the unconscious man and determine that he is dead. The men then take Superman and Mister Z's body on a plane to get them to their country, but the plane crashes on the water due to a snowstorm. They cry for Superman's help to save them with his powers, but he doesn't remember he has the power to fly and carry the plane to safety. They get on emergency rafts, but Superman gets separated from them when a Plesiosaur, an extinct ocean monster, drags him underwater. Superman breaks free from the beast using the super strength he didn't know he had. On the raft again, Mister Z wakes up, also without memories, inside his body bag, startling Superman. Together, they float adrift to an island. There, Superman discovers by accident that he can fly, and Mister Z attempts to do the same, but he twists his ankle. After walking around, they discover that the island is inhabited by dinosaurs.
