Synopsis for "Revenge, Part 4"
Cyborg Superman has marshaled his angry, impatient and rebellious troops. He debriefs them on the Fortress of Solitude and talks them into raiding the place.
Although blinded, Superman has taken his wife and son to the Fortress. As Kelex runs several tests on Superman, Lois and John walk around. They're shocked to see someone has knocked down Pa and Ma Kent's statues. John also comes upon Kryptonian battle armor. An unfamiliar voice talks to him, but he can't find its owner.
Kelex can't restore Superman's sight or determined the nature of his blindness. Since it was caused by the Black Vault, a barrier of Kryptonian nature that surrounded Belle Reve, Superman reckons it messed up his biology somehow.
Anyway, Superman decides he has no time for finding a cure. He has to find and defeat the group of villains. Scared, Lois suggests him to wear the Kryptonian battle armor, but Kelex warns it's unusable for the present time. Lois is talking Superman into calling the League, but it's too late. A quake signals the arrival of the Superman's Revenge Squad.
On National City, Kelex's call gets through to Kara Danvers. Supergirl swiftly changes clothes and takes off for the Arctic.
Superman battles fiercely, using his still-working super-senses to locate and hit each villain, but they manage to overcome him. The six villains are pummeling him into the ground, Zod demanding Superman kneels before him, when Supergirl swiftly dives in and takes him away from them.
And she isn't alone. The rest of the Superman Family -Steel, Superwoman, Super-Man- and Lex Luthor have also arrived. Lex declares the Superman Revenge Squad will get Superman over their dead bodies.
