Synopsis for "Critical Condition, Part 1 of 4: Little Big Man"
Superman is dying. After collapsing in the cave, he was taken to S.T.A.R. Labs, where the best people are trying to take care and cure Superman before he finally dies. Their job is made harder by the fact that Superman's heat-vision keeps going off all by itself, despite him being strapped down to a chair.
The medical team helping Superman consists of Dr. Sarah Charles, a meta-human expert, and Dr. Kitty Faulkner, Prof. Bridgette Crosby, John Henry Irons and finally Ray Palmer - The Atom. They think there is something inside him, attacking specific parts of his body. John Henry emerge out of the containment room and sees Lois Lane. He gives her Superman's cape to look after and give back to him when he gets better.
In LexCorp Tower, Lex is reviewing some video tapes of Lois Lane taking millions of dollars from his account. She was storing it in Swiss bank accounts under the name of Rudy Jones. Lex knows that it was really the Parasite masquerading as Lois. Lex tells Mercy to make sure that all the withdrawals were made before Parasite died.
Back at S.T.A.R. Labs, Jimmy Olsen arrives to take photographs and tell Lois that a woman called Encantadora had called for her. Lois runs off to follow it up, after all, Encantadora did try to sell Kryptonite once, while Jimmy tries to take some pictures of Superman. But he finds he can't do it.
Inside the containment room, The Atom and John Henry prepare to get their team ready. John suits up and meets Supergirl and Superboy. The Atom uses his knowledge to shrink "Team Superman" down so that they will fit inside a tiny craft in order to go inside Superman's body. Shrinking the ship still further, Team Superman are told that their mission is to find the tumor and cut it out of Superman before it's too late.
The ship is put inside Superman's mouth and the journey begins, but not before being warned about the antibodies that might attack them. Once inside the chest cavity, they are indeed attacked. Steel switches the craft from auto pilot, as Supergirl goes outside to keep them away from the ship but she is unable to do so. Soon the ship is covered in antibodies and is being broken apart
