Synopsis for "Superman and the Legion of Super-Heroes (Part II of VI) - Illegal Aliens"

Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad, and Cosmic Boy examine the ruins of the Batcave in 3008, searching for evidence that Krypton exists. They speak of how the Legion can't attack the new "heroes." The "Justice League" appears and attacks, defeating the trio and proclaiming that they're only interested in righting the lies that the Legion has been spreading about Superman.

Wildfire, Colossal Boy and Dawnstar tend to Superman's wound, and indicate that they didn't bring him here earlier because he's so important to history. Superman says that he believes it to be more than that, and Wildfire tells him of how Absorbancy Boy, after being rejected from the Legion, changed his name to Earth-Man and perpetuated the myth that Superman was a human and hated aliens, a lie that has brought about the Legion's desperate situation.

Superman and the three then go to an alien holding camp in an attempt to rescue Brainiac 5.
