Synopsis for "Infestation, Chapter Four"
Korsa Majalis lies a cybernetic heap on a table, just recently saved by the much-anguished Man of Steel. Superman, meanwhile, deals with the newly assimilated massive weapon/virus known as Viroxx. He is about to take the gigantic thing to task, in the process more than likely dying, when Vorx, the best weaponry based culture in the galaxy, hit Viroxx with a number of powerful beta ray technologies, sending it back a ways.
Viroxx drones unleash the Infernus, a distraction tactical weapon, stunning and confusing Superman while Viroxx escapes. With no enemy to fight, Superman returns to the main camp to check on Korsa.
Korsa is angry that Superman did not let him sacrifice himself in order to destroy Viroxx. But Korsa reluctantly agrees to partner with Superman in the name of destroying Viroxx.
Superman gathers together with the Vorx and creates a suit designed to infiltrate and infect Viroxx. He goes his own way, preparing to attack directly, stopping Superman if necessary, for he knows Superman is weak for Lois Lane.
Korsa attacks straight on. Superman has to stop him from killing Lois, then from Korsa killing himself via a suicide attack. The now weakened Korsa is taken back from the action and thrown into space by Superman, who promises to return for him later. Superman launches himself into Viroxx, using the beta rays to weaken it. Inside, Superman encounters resistance, but is able to use his technology to subdue the virus.
Meanwhile, the Vorx watch the brood leaders severing themselves from Viroxx, and are able to convert Lois back to her former self.
Superman sees that Viroxx is almost pitifully weakened, and leaves it to be destroyed by the flotilla. He returns to the base of operations to find Lois back to normal, and not remembering anything.
Korsa, however, blazes after Viroxx, disregarding his child, consumed with hatred.
