Synopsis for "Superman: Up in the Sky, Part 3 – Fight!!!"
The referee reminds Superman and Mighto that they cannot use any of their powers before starting the fight. The two competitors prove to be quite equal and tire each other by the third round. Mighto however states that both of them know each other's limits, but he will go down first, advicing him to just fall and stay down for the count. Superman however responds with a punch.
Clark's cornerman encourage him to take Mighto down, stating he's a super-hero and Mighto is a little-known mercenary. In the fifth round, Mighto while pummelling Superman states that he would have lost if his opponent could his powers, but he will win in a fist fight. Clark falls down in the sixth round but manages to get back up. It is revealed that Mighto was sent to stop Superman from trying to find Alice and conditioned that he'll reveal his employer as well as how they knew about him if he wins in a ifst fight, going after them instead of fighting an outright fight.
Superman keeps getting pummelled and after the ninth round is heavily injured, but refuses to quit telling his cornermen he won't stop till he finds her. Mighto gets surprised by the fact that he keeps fighting back and claims he should be falling, but Clark states he would have known he won't if he really knew him. The mercenary then just decides to give up by staying down for the count, telling the referee that he'll fall eventually if he keeps fighting but Superman won't.

Synopsis for "Feeding Frenzy"
This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 4) #5.
On a plane heading to Coast City, a man named Jerry talks with the passenger he's sitting next to, about how he wanted a fresh start. As he offers his hand, the passenger reveals that he's missing one himself; it's William Hand. He has no desire for a fresh start, but retribution. Suddenly, the plane is caught in a bright light, and three gremlin-like creatures appear on the wing, speaking in German. They enter the plane and grab Hand.
At Edwards Air Force Base, Hal Jordan is taking off his ring, about to go on his first test flight in years, when Colonel Sellers tells him that General Stone wants to see him. Stone says that there was a bizarre double murder on the beach last night, one of whom was a sailor, and Stone wants Hal to go help investigate. Heading to the beach, police are trying to secure the crime scene, and what little is left of the bodies. Both heads were crushed open and their brains eaten out, and a tooth was left behind, too big to for any normal animal. Green Lantern, however, knows of one, and immediately heads into the ocean. Underwater, Hal finds a massive amount of sharks, which he assumes are the "little ones" hoping to catch some of the big one's meal. Sure enough, Hal's suspicions are soon confirmed; it's the Shark.
At Belle Reve, Hector Hammond is being washed down, bored that he has nobody interesting to listen in on. Suddenly, he becomes aware that the same Gremlin like creatures are in his cell, and he begins to panic.
In the ocean, Hal, in a green cage, uses his ring to scan the Shark's stomach, learning that he was responsible for the murders. Suddenly, the Shark bites through the cage and Hal's force field. Hal realizes that the Shark must have used his psychic abilities to make him feel fear. However, the Shark's mind is confused. He's having trouble thinking, and doesn't recognize Hal, but only desires to eat his brain. The Shark and Hal go on a merry chase that ends when the Shark rams them through the hull of a ship. The Shark goes for the sailors, but Hal stops him with a green fishhook. The Shark concentrates, and finally recognizes Green Lantern.
In Coast City, William Hand is deposited in a park, in his Black Hand costume, but looking decidedly unhealthy. Suddenly, the grass and plants begin dying around him, and his hand starts to reform, only to then fade away. Deciding that he needs more, he goes to a nearby hospital.
On the ship, Hal is able to blow the Shark back into the water. Unsure how long the battle will take, Hal has his ring get his battery. As he's in the middle of recharging, the Shark jumps out of the water and pulls Hal under. Running out of options, Hal plunges the battery in the Shark's mouth, and the Shark is rendered unconscious in the blast. However, Hal and the Shark soon find themselves pulled into an alien ship, manned by the Gremlins.
At the hospital, Black Hand begins draining the life force out of everyone on the floor, leaving them dead; and him with his hand.

This story is reprinted from The Terrifics #5.
Mr. Terrific runs tests on Phantom Girl to determine how the Terrifics became bonded together but abruptly cancels them when she asks about his personal life. Meanwhile, Metamorpho talks with Sapphire about leaving her father's work to come be with him but he is rebuffed and Java mocks him, leading the two to fight. Plastic Man calls Angel to tell her that he's been trapped in the form of an egg for five years and so has not been able to see their son. They are all interrupted by a distress signal informing them of a town in Michigan where everyone is being mutated into Metamorphae. From a sewer grate, Algon emerges saying that he's been imprisoned for a millennium and abducts Metamorpho. The other Terrifics dive into a portal to follow them to Algon's home, the Kingdom of Elements, but are sent to other locations instead. Algon has acquired the Orb of Ra and plans to imprison Metamorpho in the Kingdom.
