Synopsis for "Superman: Up in the Sky, Part 6 – Just a Little Farther!"
Sgt. Rock regrets rescuing the unconscious Superman while trying to take St. Ruth's church, but states to himself what's done is done. As he wakes him up and asks him about him his name, Clark can't remember it and only knows that he's from Kansas. After covering him up in a soldier's uniform, the two get caught in an artillery bombardment and are forced to hide in a foxhole. The next day a German grenade lands near them, but Rock throws it back in time.
After accounting for their dead, Rock told Easy Company soldiers that they're probably going to die and if they run away, someone else will be sent to fight in their place. They decide that the best option is to take the church and Rock offers a handgun to Clark, who despite his amnesia refuses but states he will accompany them. Rock figures there are 400 German soldiers protecting the church who'll pour heavy fire at them.
As Easy charges, a shell lands near Clark and Rock but the latter saves them both just in time. Clark discovers that Rock has been wounded from shrapnel and states he shouldn't go on. Rock however ignores his advice and states that they've been told this before, but as always they kept going further. As a bomb lands near them, Clark decides to throw it back but it explodes in his hand. His memory however returns and he helps Easy in taking the church.
Clark tells Rock how he landed back in time after looking for a girl named Alice, how he came from Krypton and became the protector of Earth. Rock however initially found it unbelievable, but learnt from him that he had read the stories about the war fought by the Allies which also sounded outlandish to him. This causes Rock to believe in him and he bids him goodbye as he leaves, while also crediting him for saving him and his men.

Synopsis for "The Supergirl from Krypton, Part One: Alone"
This story is reprinted from Superman/Batman #8.
A Kryptonite meteor has fallen on Earth, spreading Kryptonite bits all over the world. Superman (depressed at being the last Kryptonian) is confined to the Fortress of Solitude while everyone else deals with the aftermath.
Batman is getting irritated as Superman continually tries to persuade him to let him join in, to no avail. Batman is searching for meteor fragments beneath Gotham harbor when he comes upon a spaceship that has only been there for a week or two. While he examines it, a naked blonde girl comes out of the water, enters the Batboat and makes off with it. Alerted by an automatic warning, Batman pursues and catches up shortly after it crashes into a pier.
Near the warehouses, three dock workers see the girl approach. She speaks some other language- Kryptonian. Not understanding her, one of the men reaches out to her. She grabs his hand and squeezes his fingers, mangling them. One of his friends speaks up in the man's defense, and comes at the girl with a crowbar of some sort. The girl pushes him back several meters, shattering the crates he lands on, and bends the crowbar out of shape. In Kryptonian, she warned the men off, and then asks what is happening to her. The third man gives her his coat and she leaves, shortly before Batman arrives.
The girl runs through the streets in confusion. A car crashes into her, getting smashed, and when a red traffic light catches her attention, she accidentally blows it up with heat vision. The police arrive and open fire as she explodes one of the police cars' engine. Running away, she takes flight, making it to the top of a building where she is confronted by Batman. Trying to escape and avoid hurting anyone, she crashes into an automated dirigible and sends it plummeting towards the city as she falls through a glass roof. Batman calls Superman to direct the dirigible into the harbour, then catches up with the girl, who is now in tears. Unable to understand that she doesn't mean any harm, Batman knocks her out with a chunk of kryptonite.
In the Batcave, scans indicate the girl's planet of origin as Krypton. She wakes up and causes some damage, before Superman intervenes, and finds out that she's his cousin: Kara Zor-El.

This story is reprinted from Green Lantern (Volume 4) #8.
Hal and Ollie are both infected with Black Mercy, and dream of their families. Ollie dreams that he is married and has a growing family of two sons, and a third on the way. Hal dreams that his father and mother and all his brothers are all together and one big happy family. But Ollie begins to realize that it's not real, and breaks through to Hal's delusion because they are both connected to the same plant. Hal manages to break them free just in time to see Mongul bring Mongal to Earth to finish their fight. Hal breaks the connection and sends them both back home, where Mongul promptly beheads Mongal, killing her. Hal and Ollie realize that the family they do have is important, so Hal goes to his nephew's birthday party, while Ollie calls up Connor and asks if he wants to grab a bite to eat.
