Synopsis for "Superman: The Last God of Krypton"
An alien woman emerges from a structure that appears to be floating in space. She discovers Krypton has been destroyed but then detects a touch of warmth. She flies towards the direction of earth so that she can destroy the last Kryptonian.
Five days later, there is a strange weather change in Metropolis where it starts snowing although it is July. At the Daily Planet, Clark Kent runs into Donna Vallaire, who used to be an intern. Lois jealously pulls Clark away from Donna and they talk about the unusual weather. As Clark changes into Superman, Jimmy spots something heading toward them.
The alien woman bursts through the window of the Daily Planet. She starts shouting in Kryptonese, so Superman confronts her. The woman encases Superman in ice, but he breaks free much to the woman's amazement that he is still alive. She then realizes that he is no ordinary Kryptonian. She tells him her name is Cythonna, and decides that he will be her mate. She tells him to meet her in one hour and flies off without a trace.
Meanwhile, Lex Luthor caught the news of Cythonna's appearance and decide to form an alliance with her. When he confronts her, Cythonna declines his offer and makes him get on his knees to worship her. Luthor then gets into his limo and drives off, leaving his henchmen stunned under Cythonna's control.
Superman takes Lois to the Fortress of Solitude to keep her safe from Cythonna. They look up on Cythonna on the Fortress's computer and find out her history. It is reveal that Cythonna is a Kryptonian god and an ice elemental associated with fear, despair and death. When Cythonna met Rao, she offered him to become her mate but in reality to sought his power to father her children, which would become wind elementals and spread corruption and suborn the heat from Krypton. Rao, however, spurned Cythonna and initiated a war between fire and ice. This war ended with Rao having manage to imprisoned the chastised goddess into a pocket dimension until now. Cythonna presently came to Earth to annihilated the last traces of Rao, which was Superman, and becoming the cause for the winter in Metropolis. Superman and Lois then check the news reports and in a special bulletin Luthor asks to meet Superman. Superman then takes off, leaving Lois in the safety of the Fortress.
At Luthor's office, Luthor tells Superman that he wants to get rid of Cythonna and gives him an "indestructible magna-weave caisson" of Kryptonite. Luthor wishes Superman good luck as he flies off to meet Cythonna.
Superman meets Cythonna and she kisses him, but she tastes mortality and realizes that he is not a god. They battle each other, and during the battle Superman tells Cythonna his name, Kal-El, which makes her even more outraged. When it seems that Superman has been defeated, he knocks away Cythonna and flees into outer space. Superman lures Cythonna towards the sun where Superman is rejuvenated by the sunlight and, since the sun being the universal opposite of Cythonna, weakens the goddess and making her match closer to Superman's level. Cythonna then shows Superman her true form, grabs him, and starts to kill him as the cold envelopes his body. When all seems lost, Lois appears in a Kryptonian battle suit and throws Cythonna away from Superman. But Cythonna charges back and attacks Lois. Superman throws the Kryptonite at Cythonna, who is then shot down into the core of the sun where she is trapped.
Lois and Superman fly back to Earth where the weather has returned to normal.
