Synopsis for "Mirror, Mirror, Part Two"
Trapped in a tesseract and recuperating, the Super-Baby cries to itself, while outside, in the Fortress, a just arrived Ultraman attacks Superman. Ultraman tells Superman that they both know there isn't much time: if the hero and the villain are in the same reality after 24 hours, one will be sent back to the other's dimension. Ultraman knocks Superman into the containment field and releases the Super-Baby. Fortunately, the Super-Baby is still contained in a smaller bubble. Superman tells Ultraman that he remembers who he is, and rises from the rubble.
Above the Daily Planet, Dan Turpin attempts to take control of the situation. However, breen and purple LexCorp robots prevent him from locking the place down.
Superman hits Ultraman back, knocking him through some crystals; the same crystals that allow him to enter and leave the Fortress. He fears that they may all be trapped. Ultraman then goes for the baby, intending to destroy it, and Superman realizes, at the last minute, as Ultraman reaches into the containment field. He reaches in with him, and stops him from getting to the baby. Superman knocks Ultraman out of the field, and takes the baby. Ultraman uses his heat vision on them, saying that they can both burn. Superman shields the baby with his own body. Kelex comes in and orders Ned, the Superman Robot, to protect Superman. Although Ned briefly overpowers Ultraman, his arm is ripped off in the process.
Superman thinks of how to help the baby while all this is happening. But suddenly, Owlman and Superwoman, the other natives of the Antimatter Universe, appears. Superwoman snares the baby with her lasso and pulls it to Owlman, who holds it hostage with a razorang. Ultraman smashes Ned into Superman, demanding the baby. He explains that he found a membrane between the anti-Phantom Zone and the Phantom Zone, and crossed over, in an attempt to trace an anomalous signature (likely the Super-Baby). Superman tells them that this is only a baby. But at this point, the baby reboots as Brainiac.
