Synopsis for "The Coming of Atlas, Part 3 - All That's Red and Blue Falls Down"

Superman continues his fight against Atlas in the streets of Metropolis. The two swap blow for blow, but Atlas does not seem to be getting any weaker. Superman, on the other hand, is quickly and oddly tiring himself out. Lois Lane watches the battle mortified, as their last talk was an argument. She expressed hesitance about attending Zatanna's tour, concerned that her husband may stray from her due to Zatanna's beauty and powers, the nature of which he is vulnerable to. Though Clark reassured her, Lois is regretful that just as quickly as they made amends, he is now in a fight for his life, which terrifies her.

At the Lexcorp Tower, Lana Lang is also watching the battle, feeling annoyed by her subordinate Barrington "alien" remarks. Since the Science Police has fallen she intends to use LexCorp's resources to help Superman. Before she can send a response squad, though, a Lex Luthor hologram appears, notifies that helping Superman in any way whatsoever is grounds for dismissal, and promptly fires her. Barrington smugly says she has five minutes to leave the building or she'll be shot on sight. Lana retorts she'll be gone... and he better is gone before then because she fired him due to his insulting remarks before she got herself fired.

Another person is watching the fight from a rooftop. He vanishes, but not before Jimmy Olsen gets to snap a picture.

Meanwhile, Supergirl perceives that her cousin is in trouble and flies off to help. When she reaches Atlas however, a mysterious beam of energy falls down from the sky and weakens her. Atlas mistakes her for an Amazon and is about to hit her when Superman throws him across the street. Superman tells Supergirl to leave the scene and get as far away as possible. Supergirl doesn't want to, but she immensely reluctantly flies off.

Atlas turns his attention back on Superman and pummels him to the ground. Atlas believes he has already gained when he hears a growl. Krypto has just arrived and he wants nothing but hurt the one who has hurt his owner.



Notes

Trivia

  • Cover is an homage to Fantastic Four Vol 1 249.
  • Given that Supergirl is a honorary Amazon, Atlas is technically right when he calls her an "Amazon".
