Synopsis for "The Coming of Atlas, Part One: The World on His Shoulders"

Superman and Green Lantern are playing fetch with Krypto in deep space. Clark and Hal muse about their current lives. Superman thinks he's gotten lucky so far because he has his parents, his cousin, his wife... and even his dog. Green Lantern, whose life was in shambles thanks to the Star Sapphire Corps and Parallax, wonders if his friend is being too naive.

Meanwhile on Earth, the Science Police is battling a humongous white creature. They do their best to stop its rampage, but nothing seems to damage it. Abruptly, someone rams through the monster's chest. In its death throes the creature falls down and crashes into the Daily Planet building. The globe on top of the building topples over and falls down, but it's caught and flung far away by the mysterious figure.

The mysterious super-being calls himself Atlas and screams out for a battle against Superman in order to prove his superiority. The Science Police attacks him instead, to no avail. Atlas crushes the whole squad easily and bellows Superman's name again.

At last, Superman hears him. He tells Hal to look after Krypto and streaks back to Earth to confront Atlas.
