Synopsis for the 1st Story

Brainiac's ship lingers above New Krypton as his probes fight residents. Zod learns 1/10th of the Kryptonians have died, and that Superman is on Brainiac's ship held captive.

Luthor mocks Superman without revealing his intentions, and Brainiac tells Superman he wants him to watch as Kandor is destroyed, to feel it, because Superman made Brainiac feel.

Tellus leads Mon-El to the ship, but once inside, he is faced with many versions of Koko.

Luthor continues to mock Superman, and Brainaic tries to steal his thoughts as he experiences what's happening and learn his secrets.

As Mon-El fights the Koko army, he is contacted by a telepathic bottle city race, who ask him to save them.

Brainiac and Luthor continue to gloat. Superman musters his will and breaks free.

Mon-El is swarmed by apparitions of the telepathic city.

Luthor threatens to shoot a city if Superman doesn't surrender again. Superman surrenders, but Luthor prepares to shoot anyway. Mon-El appears, blasting Luthor's hand with heat vision and disarming him. Mon-El takes the bottle city Luthor threatened, and has a sudden feeling this is what he was released to do.

Brainiac calls down more drones, and Luthor jumps into an escape hatch. Mon-El and Superman fight the robots.
