Synopsis for "Superman: Up in the Sky, Part 8 – Man and Superman"

While traveling in space, Superman gets struck by a large electric arc, splitting his human and Kryptonian sides. Kal-El saves the human Clark Kent by quickly taking him to a nearby planet. Knowing it doesn't contain any civilization and is isolated, he states that it will take him 37 days to secure a space suit for him and he isn't willing to spend that much time. Instead, he will ensure he can survive for a while so he can contact the Green Lantern Corps to find him before heading back to Earth.

Kal-El kills an elephant-like creature so Clark has enough food, which will last long in the cold weather. As he asks if he needs anything more, he asks him about the kidnapped girl Alice. The next day, Clark is confronted by Kal who states saving her is a waste of time and he needs to safeguard other humans on Earth first. Clark tells him to go away as he's tired of listening to it but he responds that he's bound to consider things through science and facts because he's a Kryptonian.

As Clark prepares to try to find a way to leave the planet, Kal states he's wasting his time as there's no way and even if he did, he can do nothing without his powers. Clark responds that he'll do it anyway and gets chided for risking his life for one girl, stating his human parents' values are responsible for his foolish view. He in turn accuses Kal of being heartless and blames his Kryptonian parents for it. They verbally insult each other and Clark eventually smashes his stone knife at him, telling him to fly away as he always does.

Kal however soon returns and tells him that he can't save the girl but gets told he simply can't leave. As he gets confused why he doesn't feel superior, Kal is told by Clark they both need from each other what they have, suggesting they go back into the electric arc to merge. Kal tries to dissuade him as he might die, but Clark states they have to or Alice will and thus successfully persuades him.

Synopsis for "The Supergirl from Krypton, Part Three: Warrior"

This story is reprinted from Superman/Batman #10.

On Themyscira, Superman and Batman are observing Kara and Artemis train in a match overseen by Wonder Woman. Superman is still upset over how Kara had been brought to the island, even though it has been weeks, but Batman still views the plan he and Wonder Woman formed as necessary. As the match heats up, Artemis sweeps Kara from under her feet, and prepares to deliver a killing blow, when Superman charges forward and grabs her by the neck. Wonder Woman throws her lasso around Superman's neck, asking if he's lost his mind as the sword would have shattered on impact. Superman explains that he's been patient long enough and is taking Kara home. Wonder Woman points out that "home" is one of three options: Clark and Lois' apartment, the Fortress, where her only contact would be Krypto, or Krypton, which has long since died. Kara speaks up and says that she should have a say in where she lives.

Diana dismisses Kara and the other Amazons while she talks with Superman and Batman, but Kara is still able to hear their conversation, noting that Superman is still defending her while Batman still doubts her. Superman keeps insisting that he believes she's from Krypton, but Wonder Woman points out that if she is as powerful as him, it's a secret someone will try to exploit. Superman realizes that she and Batman haven't told him everything about why they took her.

Elsewhere, Kara and Harbinger land near the beach, and Kara tells her what is going on with the others. As far as Harbinger is concerned, with Kara's strength and abilities, she should become Supergirl. Kara isn't so sure, but Harbinger tells her that Diana is someone that she can trust. Kara thanks her, saying that she's the best friend she's had on the Island. Kara suggests that they go for a swim to clear her head, and Harbinger says she'll follow. In truth, her orb is activating, and shows her a vision of Superman holding a dead girl...

Back at the ring, Superman has been informed of another of Harbinger's visions about Kara: her presence will bring death and destruction. There aren't any specifics, but Wonder Woman has had the Amazons on alert since Kara arrived. All of a sudden, a Boom Tube opens up and ejects Doomsday. Superman tells the others to protect Kara while he handles the monster, but to their horror, a whole army of Doomsday's exit the tube. Wonder Woman orders the Amazons to attack and arms Batman. As the battle rages, they notice that the Doomsdays have no blood or higher level functions that Doomsday originally held. Batman concludes that Doomsday's DNA was too complex for Apokoliptian scientists to clone, and what they're facing are Doctor Bedlam's animates. Superman destroys the Doomsday's with a massive blast of heat vision, something which greatly drains him. He realizes that Batman is not there, and he and Wonder Woman fly off.

Near the shores of Paradise Island, Batman has found the body of Harbinger's vision: Lyla herself. Having thought he heard another boom tube open when the Doomsday's appeared, Batman concluded that the Doomsdays were a decoy to allow the Female Furies to get, kill Lyla, and kidnap Kara. As Harbinger's orb activates again, it shows a vision of Kara at Darkseid's mercy. An enraged Superman vows to go straight to Apokolips and take Kara back.

Synopsis for "Revenge of the Green Lanterns, Part One"

This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 4) #10.

The issue opens up with Hal Jordan battling the Igneous Man, who was hired as a mercenary to capture the Green Lantern. Hal is attacked from behind by the Rocket Red Brigade of Russia, who tell him that he is under arrest for refusing to listen to their warnings about entering Russian air space. He tells them that he is after the Igneous Man, but the Rockets are aware of his presence. As Jordan battles the Brigade, he sees that Igneous Man is melting the wings off of a Russian fighter jet, and saves it.

In a flashback, Hal was captured by Chechnyan terrorists, after bombing their camps. They had also captured two other pilots who were with Hal, Col. Shane "Rocket-Man" Sellers and Capt. Jillian "Cowgirl" Pearlman. He hears the words "It's Green Lantern's fault."

Jordan wakes up from the nightmare to the sound of the news where the Global Guardians were issuing a statement concerning his actions. He says goodbye to a date who stayed overnight. Oliver Queen, Jordan's best friend, arrives at the door of his apartment. They walk around outside and talk about Green Lantern's latest actions. Hal defends himself by saying that when he becomes Green Lantern borders don't exist, and that it is because of a bounty on his head that he is being targeted by multiple mercenaries.

Meanwhile, on a planet in Sector 674, a monster is seen battling a number of warriors, when a Yellow Power Ring arrives and welcomes him into something called the Sinestro Corps.

The three pilots are at a celebration at Edwards Air Force Base for their return from Russia, when an alien ship appears and crashes near the base. When Jordan checks out the ship he realizes that there is a Green Lantern onboard, but one he did not expect to see again: the Green Lantern of Sector 2813, Tomar Tu, who was last seen when Hal became Parallax and killed him.
