Synopsis for "Skin Game"

A group of thugs in a back alley are assaulting a woman. Bloodsport arrives on the scene. He threatens all of them and proceeds to kill each one. He also kills the woman...just because she is black.

After a failed search for the killer of Adam Grant, Clark returns to the Daily Planet. While there his X-Ray vision is allowing him to see the heat trails of everyone around him. Perry White bursts in to announce that he heard over the police radio that a crime is being committed at Hob's Heights. Clark disappears!

Across town Cat Grant mourns the loss of her son. While at Hob Heights Superman arrives at an apartment complex and is shot at by some automatic turrets. He quickly disables them and then shields a young girl from a weapon blast from Bloodsport. Bloodsport wishes all of "their kind" to be killed, hits Superman with some tear gas, and then disappears into the apartment complex. Superman enters the complex to a scene of horror, multiple victims, and more hostages in the building.

At Cat Grant's apartment, Lois arrives to console her, and sees a bottle of vodka on the counter. Cat explains that she had quit drinking for her son, and that now she just wants to numb the pain. Lois offers support. Back at the apartment complex, the media has assembled outside including Jimmy Olsen and Ronald Troupe. On the roof, Bloodsport watches from above. His hostages say Superman will save them. He turns to them to shoot, pulls the trigger, and Superman bursts through the floor of the roof stopping the blast and breaking Bloodsport's hand. Bloodsport teleports in a flamethrower and sets fire to the roof cutting off the escape of the hostages. While Superman rescues the hostages off of the roof, Bloodsport jumps off the roof and into the apartment next door. He sees an interracial couple and murders them on the spot.

Superman finishes saving the hostages and putting out the fire and rushes to confront Bloodsport. Bloodsport fires two Hunter-Killer missiles; one for Jimmy and one for Ron. Will Superman have enough time to stop both missiles?
