Synopsis for "Divine Spark, part 3"
We continue directly from Triangle #22, Mon-El & the Science Police arrive at S.T.A.R Labs and confront Thara and Chris. The Science Police take them into custody and remove the age inhibitor until they can fathom its purpose. They also search the labs and interrogate Dr. Pillings. Romundi, a Sci Pol officer who is secretly Car-Vex a fellow sleeper agent asks Pillings if the rumors surrounding Thara and Chris are true so she can report back to Ursa.
Pillings doesn't let on about his discoveries and sends Car-Vex on her way. Chris and Thara are taken to Sci Pol headquarters and placed in a red sun prison cell. Guardian is frosty - no matter what they say the duo are still illegal immigrants and should go back to New Krypton - regardless of Zod's execution order. Chris, still a bit hazy on the law asks if they're entitled to a phone call - and calls his mom.
Meanwhile Car-Vex proves to be a double agent, she feeds info to Project 7734 and promptly sets in motion a sunstone bomb and detonator ready to cause havoc. Lois Lane arrives and helps Guardian and the others realize more about Ral Dar - The Patriot, and the sleeper agent mission. General Lane arrives and interrupts the chat along with his new personally selected Squad K.
The General's attitude, coupled with Mon and Lois' belief in Thara and Chris finally gets through to the Guardian, and just as the Squad are about to apprehend the lovers Jim shuts off the Red Sun generators. Fully powered the trio of Mon Thara and Chris make short work of Squad K. Thara orders Guardian to evacuate, but it's too late.
Car-Vex activates the bomb and pulls General Lane out of harms way. The Sci Pol base crumbles from the explosive force...

Hal then ask Captain Atom that he needs a reminder of being a hero, most specifically being responsible for saving Earth from a Kryptonite meteor. However, Captain Atom feels he has changed from the man he once was, and that he needs to go back to Mirabai's world to make right of what he has done. But he also needs to find a way to get back.
