Diana and Paul vow to support Peggy throughout this whole ordeal. Currently, in Gotham City, Batman is recovering and stops Azrael's brutality as Batman. In Metropolis, four individuals appear and claiming to be a reborn Superman: Superboy, Steel, Cyborg Superman, and the Eradicator. Paul and Nelson are called over to S.T.A.R.

Eradicator tries to set out to destroy alien spheres from being deployed, when he is struck from behind by Cyborg Superman, who uses Eradicator's energy to trigger the spheres, causing a massive explosion that devastated Coast City and its entire population. The remaining spheres then begin construction of a new Warworld, with the ship, controlled by Mongul as its heart. Back in Metropolis, the heroes are witnessing the return of the true Superman, who along with Steel and Superboy are set out to destroy the Warworld and take down the Cyborg Superman and Mongul.
