Synopsis for "Path of Doom, Part Five"
Lex Luthor continues assisting in the relief efforts after Doomsday leaves Metropolis to fight Superman and Wonder Woman. After securing a devastated building, Lex comes across the human Clark and sees his broken arm, further confirming his claims that he is not Superman as Lex had previously suspected. While Lex and Clark talk, a piece of debris falls off the building and is about to crush a woman and her son but a Superwoman saves them, far too quickly for either Lex and Clark to notice her identity: the Lois Lane of Prime Earth. Lex and Clark then investigate the vessel that brought Doomsday to Earth, while Mr. Oz watches the events from his hideout.
Meanwhile, in the open field, Wonder Woman fights Doomsday while Superman helps his family escape. Just as Doomsday is about to overwhelm Wonder Woman, Superman quickly joins the fight. Doomsday grabs Wonder Woman's sword and attempts to kill Jon with it but Wonder Woman quickly deflects the sword with her bracelets and attempts to restrain Doomsday with her lasso. Unfortunately, the beast breaks free of the lasso, throws Wonder Woman several feet away and attempts to strangle Superman. Seeing his father in danger, Jon angrily unleashes his heat vision on the beast, an act that gives Superman and Wonder Woman enough time to recover.
Once again, Superman asks Wonder Woman to take Lois and Jon to safety, much to Lois and Jon's mutual reluctance. Superman confronts Doomsday again and pushes him to the defensive. As they are away from the city, Superman no longer has to worry about collateral damage. Mr. Oz orders his forces to mobilize against Doomsday as well. Wonder Woman teleports Lois and Jon to the Justice League Watchtower, but Lois and Jon insist on watching Superman's fight with Doomsday, at least to ensure that Superman is okay. Wonder Woman reluctantly agrees.
Despite Superman's best efforts, Doomsday continues his assault... until he gets attacked by Mr. Oz's soldiers. Confused by this sudden turn of events, Superman suspects there might be someone trying to take advantage of this whole situation.
