Synopsis for "Injustice: Gods Among Us - Chapter 30"
A flashback of a boy named James is shown, six years ago. He is reflecting a time when he launched off of his bicycle and landed on his face, scratching and bruising him. He looks up to see Superman, asking him if he is all right. When James does not respond, Superman attempts to fix the boy's bike; unfortunately, he stretches the wheel too far and breaks it further. Instead of worrying over the bike, Kal offers to fly James back to his house in Metropolis.
Back in his apartment, James thanks Superman and asks if he wants something to eat. Superman instead looks away, distracted, and apologizes for leaving suddenly before flying off. He confronts two thugs who are attempting to rob a bank. It is revealed that their guns had no bullets, and that they didn't want to hurt anyone.
Later, James' mother asks what happened to his bike. When James tries to explain what happened with Superman, she doesn't believe him. Superman then flies to the top of the Daily Planet building to meet Lois Lane, who discusses a newly revealed plot by Intergang to create a sinkhole beneath Wall Street. Kal tells Lois about James and his bicycle. They kiss, and Kal jokingly tells Lois to "save the planet from financial ruin", while Lois asks him to save cycling. As James' mother clips mangled pieces of his hair, Superman knocks on their apartment door, with a new bicycle wheel in tow. He tells James and his mother that he wants to try putting the wheel on with a wrench instead of super-strength.
In the present day, James is reminiscing on Superman's exploits throughout the world on television, lamenting what has become of Superman and the world as a whole. "I miss the city of tomorrow -- and the man of yesterday," he says.
