Synopsis for "Sacrifice, Aftermath: Fragmentation"
Superman relates recent events to his wife Lois Lane, expressing his fears that while under the influence of mind-control, he could easily have killed someone. When he believed that Doomsday was murdering Lois, he had wanted to kill the creature with his bare hands.
When he was released by Wonder Woman from mental manipulation, he was horrified to learn that she had remorselessly killing Maxwell Lord to do it. He angrily confronted her, but they were both called away by Black Canary to deal with several international crises, requiring them to split up.
While trying to stop a missile en route to Taiwan, Superman is attacked by O.M.A.C.s. He becomes angry, and attacks them violently. He is taken aback, though, when he realizes that the O.M.A.C.s were actually people in need of his help.
Superman then visits Batman in the Batcave, finding that Bruce was still angry with him for having beaten him to the brink of death while under mind control. They argue, and Superman confesses his disapproval of Wonder Woman's actions. Batman reveals that he had already heard from her, dismissing Superman by telling him to go home to his wife.
As Superman finishes his story, he admits that he is at a complete loss as to what he should do about the moral dilemma he faces with Wonder Woman while Lois hugs to comfort him.
