Synopsis for "Brainiac (Part III of V) - Greetings"
At the Daily Planet, Cat Grant struts down the aisles impressing the younger male staff with her "assets". Supergirl stops by the Planet to inquire about Clark Kent's whereabouts and embarasses Cat by accidentally and candidly revealing information about her physical "enhancements". Lois Lane comes along and takes Kara aside before Cat have the chance to object. On Daily Planet's rooftop, Supergirl asks again where her cousin is at.
Superman is actually trapped aboard Brainiac's Skull Ship where he is being examined by Brainiac Probes. He dreams of cities being captured and planets destroyed. When he awakens, he breaks free and smashes several of the robots. Superman begins exploring the vessel, searching for Brainiac. After a disturbing encounter with an ape-like specimen named Koko, Superman finds the shrunken Krptonian city of Kandor. The city is concealed inside a bottle that retracts up into the ceiling as soon as Superman touches it. Continuing his exploration, he soon comes upon the bio-pod of the ship's master, Brainiac.
Brainiac awakens and descends from the pod. He approaches Superman, grabs his neck and declares Superman belongs to him now. Superman defends himself but his attacks don't apprear to be very effective. Brainiac slams Superman into a wall, where he is seized by metallic tentacles, and then Brainiac drones on everything belonging to him. He'll absorb the universe's knowledge until he has evolved into perfection. But since knowledge is power, he will not allow someone else to gain it. Superman realizes Brainiac obliterates planets after stealing a piece of their culture and tries to fight Brainiac again. Nonetheless, Brainiac subdues him once again. Then Brainiac tells when he mind-probed Superman's mind he learned of the existence of Earth and other living Kryptonian specimen: his cousin.
On Metropolis, people are going about their business when Brainac's ship appears in the sky above the city. Standing on the Daily Planet rooftop, Lois and Kara see the ship and Supergirl gets firghtened.
