Synopsis for "Repo-Man, Part Two"
Two pilots cross over St. Louis when suddenly something appears on the radar. A battered Superman goes flying by and crashes to the ground. The assembled crowd can only comment that whatever is strong enough to throw Superman like that is a very bad thing.
Back at the Kent farm, the Repo Man laughs at how hard he hit Superman while Pa and Superboy launch an offensive. Superboy tackles him, but immediately starts to feel weak. As Pa helps Superboy up, Repo Man comes charging out of the rubble. Superboy taunts him, and Repo Man slams him into the ground. With Superboy out of commission, the giant turns his attention to Pa.
Miles away, Superman tears off into the sky. Pa fires a few useless shots at Repo Man before being picked up. Repo Man begins to pull Pa in half when Superboy whistles. Krypto suddenly charges in and bites the monster, letting Pa get free. As Repo Man pulls Krypto off, sonic booms fill the air as Superman slams into Repo Man. As Superman holds Repo Man down, whatever powers he had begin to fade and he reverts to his human form. He makes some rather lewd comments about the Kent women, and Superman quickly knocks him out. Superboy and Krypto find a glowing chunk of Kryptonite lying there, and surmise that he got it from a 'white-haired old guy'. Krypto digs a hole and they drop the Kryptonite into it. As the women run up, they comment how Superman is starting to look older. Taking Repo Man with him, Superman heads off to S.T.A.R. Labs to have himself checked out.
At dinner, Lana makes a comment about how Lois isn't there to support her husband right now. Lois argues back that Lana should shut up. Martha finally gets a word in and tells Lois that she isn't as supportive as she should be, and tells Lana that she had her chance and needs to move on.
Elsewhere, Doomsday plods through the streets.
At Preus' compound, Jimmy Olsen investigates around when he hears a voice in his head. Looking around, he finds J'onn staked up and bloody. J'onn tells Jimmy to run and bring Superman. Suddenly Preus interrupts and tells Jimmy not to leave so soon. Jimmy demands what they did to J'onn, who's almost as powerful as Superman, and Preus offers to show him.
