Synopsis for "New Krypton (Part III of X) - The Worst Night of His Life"
Jimmy Olsen visits the home of Jim Harper, the retired super-hero once known as Guardian. Jimmy tells him about Codename: Assassin and the recent murder of Dubbilex and the Newsboy Legion. He also tells him Codename: Assassin's real name, Jonathan Drew.
Harper speaks philosophically about being a clone and ponders whether or not a clone has a soul. He further tells Jimmy about an alien being he encountered at Project Cadmus' Salem facility that was wearing a strange ring. He had also found the cloning banks which contained grotesque amalgamations of Jim Harper clones combined with DNA taken from Paul Kirk. Jimmy concludes his interview and leaves.
