Synopsis for "Superman: Up in the Sky, Part 1 – Alice"
Clark gets called by Bruce to Gotham and is informed about a couple and two of their foster girls being murdered. Another girl Alice was abducted but one survived after being shot, and he wants him to find out the details from her. The injured girl admitted at the Gotham Mercy hospital states that they hid in a bush after hearing loud noises and screams. After being shot, she saw Alice being taken by a spaceman who flew away towards the sky.
At the Daily Planet, Clark tries to convince Perry White to let him investigate the murder of Alice's family but receives a mouthful over covering murders in Gotham which witnesses a lot of murders every day and is called naïve. Later while fighting a dinosaur with Hal Jordan, Superman gets told that the mysterious spaceman seemingly used a counterfeit Zeta-Beam to teleport from Earth and no one on Earth knows how to trace them. Hal states they contacted the Rannians for finding where the spaceman went but they're stalling on the issue. Though an alert had been sent to the entire Green Lantern Corps, Hal states it would be very difficult to find her.
Superman explains to Batman that he can't go looking for the girl as he has duties on Earth, but Bruce tells him that he can since he's not like anyone else on the planet and tells him to go to Rann. After performing a few tasks and thinking it over, Clark asks Pa Kent who states maybe others will find her but maybe they never will and she will keep hoping that someone will come rescue her. He later learns from Bryuce that the girl he talked to in Gotham Mercy succumbed to her injuries. Clark later tells Lois he'll have to leave the planet to search for the girl. As they banter, he states he knows he can't save everyone but wants to save Alice, before he flies away from the Earth.

Synopsis for "Flight Delay"
This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 4) #3.
The new Manhunter model attacks Hal Jordan and opens up to reveal a Green Lantern Power Battery inside its head, which drains Hal's ring of most of it's power. The damaged Manhunter flies away with the new model in pursuit. Hal and Shane convince General Stone to allow Hal to fly one of the jets after them, but not before Hal punches Stone in the jaw.
General Stone reluctantly explains to Hal that the U.S. Military had confiscated Abin Sur's spacecraft many years ago. They were unable to fix the ship until they found a damaged Manhunter robot after the Millennium event. Seven weeks ago, the robot turned itself on.
The new Manhunter damages the old Manhunter enough that it lands in the middle of Coast City and activates its self-destruct sequence, which would destroy the entire city. The new Manhunter turns its attention to Hal and pulls him out of the cockpit of his jet. In free fall, a powerless Jordan recites the Green Lantern oath as he pulls the robot's head / Green Lantern battery off. With his ring recharged, Hal grabs the self-destructing Manhunter and takes it into space. The robot admits that it is afraid of ceasing to exist shortly before detonating.
The next day, Hal talks to General Stone about a pilot position. Stone accepts Hal's apology and admits that he determined that Hal is Green Lantern from the style of his punch. That night, Hal sees his brother moving into Coast City with his finally.
In a short epilogue, a robed figure, acting as the new Grandmaster of the Manhunters, surveys a group of imprisoned Green Lanterns, all of whom were supposedly killed by Hal Jordan when he was Parallax.

Meanwhile, in Michigan, an unidentified member of the Metamorphae wreaks havoc on a city street. Metamorpho and Sapphire Stagg discuss the strains on their relationship and Phantom Girl pleads with Terrific to find a way for her to communicate with her homeworld Bgtzl but a mammoth war wheel bursts onto Stagg's property, leading the heroes to deflect it. It turns out that the device was an invention of Stagg's that somehow went berzerk and was sicced on his mansion but no one knows who did it or why.
