Synopsis for "Superman: Up in the Sky, Part 10 – The Offer"

Superman is told of getting up peacefully one morning, without a worry in the world and dressing up in his superhero disguise calmly and slowly while hearing Lois talk about her latest story. After he goes out, he stops at the court to testify against Lex Luthor and when asked if Metropolis could recover from his action, he states yes as he could never destroy what this city really stood for. As he later looks for any trouble, he doesn't spot any and decides to go to work after getting bored.

As he writes an article about corruption in the federal government, he hears Lois and Perry arguing before going back to his work. As he tries to refine the first paragraph, he tries to remember what his father would say about it. As he does, he is told he has enough time to write up a good article. He later has lunch together with Batman and Wonder Woman, where he reminisces about the days gone by, makes jokes, asks them about their families and kids, why he still dresses up as a hero and they promise to see each other again.

In the afternoon he plays with children and in the night asks Lois to accompany him to the moon to watch the Earth rise. Back home, he learns of a cat stuck in a tree but tries to find if there's a more important emergency that needs to be dealt with first. Finding nothing, he rescues the cat and goes back home to rest. The person then states that he has failed in stopping him no matter what he threw his way, but with his resources he can give him the peaceful life he just told him about. Superman declines and states he prefers Alice going back home.

Synopsis for "The Supergirl from Krypton, Part Six: Hero"

This story is reprinted from Superman/Batman #13.

As Superman stands over Kara's ashes, Darkseid prepares to leave. As he moves toward the boom tube, he mocks Superman by reminding him that he is once again the last son of Krypton, and saying that Kara's death is his fault. Unable to bear it anymore, Superman attacks Darkseid, punching him clear across the Kent farm and into the barn. As Superman attacks Darkseid, he decries him for talking about Kara like he knew her. Darkseid fires his Omega Beams at Superman, but Wonder Woman dives in, deflecting the blasts back at Darkseid with her bracelets. However, Superman throws her out of the barn, saying that this is between him and Darkseid.

As Superman carries Darkseid out of the atmosphere while fighting him, he talks about the simple things in life that Kara will never experience, things Darkseid does not care for, why he only knows death. Darkseid believes it's made him a god, but Superman retorts it's made him vulnerable. While they fight, they begin orbiting the sun, and a powered-up and berserker Superman manages to injure Darkseid enough to break his arm and make him bleed. Dragging him out of orbit, Superman activates a boom tube and takes Darkseid to the Source Wall, imprisoning him within it, saying that Darkseid belongs with all the other failures in the universe.

Heading back to the Kent farm, he finds the Justice League helping repair the damage. The Martian Manhunter, repairing the house, reassures Superman that his parents were in town, while Flash, repairing the barn, tells Superman they owe him this much. Wonder Woman asks about Darkseid, but Superman tells her that he'll never bother them again. Heading to Paradise Island, Superman enters a hidden room where he informs one last person--Kara Zor-El. The whole event turned out to be Superman's plan, the idea of flying cross county being to deliberately provoke Darkseid into an attack and make him believe that he had killed Kara (in fact, Wonder Woman had teleported Kara out of the beam's path and teleported in ashes). Superman reassures her that no matter what she decides, he will be there for her.

At the Fortress of Solitude, Superman and Batman talk about what happened. Superman admits that he had become so overprotective of Kara that he was denying her a chance to live her life, and also apologizes to Batman about the remark regarding Jason Todd. Batman says that it's forgotten, and admits that this situation is more like what happened with him and Dick Grayson after he became Nightwing. As they speak, Kara shows up, saying that she has made a decision. At Paradise Island, Superman introduces the superhero community to Kara, who is now Supergirl. She admits that she isn't sure she earned the right to wear the costume, but that with their help, she'll grow into it. Superman privately reflects that he'll never be alone again thanks to her, while Batman privately reflects, for Superman's sake, he'll put aside his suspicions regarding Kara... for now.

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

This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 4) #13.

The Green Lanterns that had been used by the Manhunters as a power source battle their former captors. However, they also see Hal Jordan as a threat, as their last memories are of battling him when he was possessed by Parallax. As Kreon dies, his ring heads for Boodikka, and she tries to attack him until Ke'Haan orders her to attack the Manhunters. He has less success in ordering Honnu to actually use his ring.

Hal heads for the recently rediscovered Arisia, but the Cyborg Superman grabs her first. He explains that when Major Force suffocated her, Arisia had gone into a coma like state to heal, something all Graxosians do. They had buried her alive, and left her to rot. However, Arisia awakens and slices of Henshaw's arm. Hal explains that he's back to his normal self, they're on the Manhunter homeworld with about 26 other captive Lantenrs, seven of who want to kill him, and they need to free them. Jordan manages to get Gardner out of his Highmaster, and tells him to rescue the others and evacuate them. While fighting, Henshaw reveals that he destroyed Coast City because his wife was from there. Henshaw then explains that the Highmasters use Green Lanterns as fuel, eventually breaking them down slowly over a period of twenty years, and that this is to be his fate. However, the Highmaster also grabs Arisia, who helps Hal to take control of the Highmaster. Henshaw screams that he knows what the Guardians are really hiding, but Hal, uninterested, uses the Manhunter to destroy Power Battery on Biot, which in turns destroys the planet. Fortunately, the Green Lanterns survive.

Back on Oa, Guy Gardner tells the Guardians that he authorized the mission to Biot. The Guardians believe that Guy is covering for Hal, but Guy refuses to change his story. As punishment, the Guardians sentence Guy to one month of Prime-Duty, much to Gardner's annoyance. The Guardians also refuse Hal's request to send a retrieval team to search Sector 3601, even though Hal tells them that Henshaw most likely survived. In the halls of the Citadel, the Lost Lanterns are given heroes welcomes. Ke'Haan tells Jordan that they and the other captives owe him their lives, but they still remember what he did to them, and gives him a warning: if he stays clear of them, they'll stay clear of him. However, Arisia is more forgiving and gives Hal a goodbye kiss. Elsewhere, Salakk explains the rules of Prime-Duty to Guy. He is not to eat, sleep, drink, talk, or dispose of any waste while he is there. His ring will perform any bodily functions he requires for the four weeks he is there. Guy is most displeased.

In their meeting room, the Guardians discuss the ramifications of what they have learned: although the Manhunters were built blind to the "path", Henshaw was once fused with the Source Wall, and if anyone is to have learned of and sought it out, it would be a curious Earthman. Fearing that Henshaw may have discovered the 52, they decide that one of them will have to seek him out.
