Synopsis for "Escape from Dinosaur Island, Part Two"
Superman and Superboy are suddenly being shot by Captain William Storm, the sole survivor of the Losers. Superman effortlessly disarmed Storm and show him that he and his son are not a threat. Later, Captain Storm explains to Superman and Superboy of how he survived on the island. He was picked up by a pterodactyl in which it took him to its nest and feed its young. Fortunately, Storm was able to fought off and slowly traveled his way back to the cave where he finds John Cloud's epitaph. Since then, Captain Storm has been fighting for survival and remained ignorant of how World War II ended or how the world changed. Though Superman explained to him on how World War II won, Captain Storm is not interested about the "when" in which he already knows that his time is long gone.
Superman propose Captain Storm's help to find the transporter device given how Storm is familiar with the layout of the island. But before that, Captain Storm pays his respect to John Cloud, Gunner, and Sarge. Afterward, Superboy shows a drawing of the transporter to Storm, who immediately recognize it as he previously saw it before and is currently in the possession of some "thing" that is very dangerous. Superman makes a new wooden leg for Storm. Before the trio make their journey, Storm has also tamed a pterodactyl - he explains to Superman and Superboy that he killed the adult pterodactyl and fed it to its young, and was able to domesticate them. One of which he named his mount after actress Myrna Loy.
The three travel across to the other side of the island where the creatures there are more distinctive from the other dinosaurs. They then find user of the transporter sitting on top of a pile of World War II planes and weapons: a giant albino ape who possesses a cybernetic eye similar to the one on the giant octopus that Superman and Superboy previously fought. Apparently the ape has control over all the creatures in the vicinity and commands them to attack the heroes. A savage battle ensues and Superboy is able to find the transporter. Superman grabs the crystal from the ape's cybernetic eye. But as the transporter activates, Captain Storm chose to stay and preventing the creatures from going through the teleportation.
Superman, Superboy, and Krypto are back at the Fortress of Solitude. But the crystal that Superman acquired has disappeared during the transit. Superman and Superboy are left to contemplate on what exactly happened. The fate of the object that Superman brought with him is left in the possession of a shadowed out figure who stares at a cybernetic octopus.
