History

Following the events of the "Superman: New Krypton" story-arc, Alura In-Ze creates an artificial planet called New Krypton in an attempt to get away from Earth following the death of Zor-El, and releases General Zod and his subordinates from the Phantom Zone. In response, Earth's governments outlaw all Kryptonians except for Superman. In an effort to prevent any further Human/Kryptonian confrontations, Superman relocates to New Krypton to help his people rebuild their society. While assuming this duty, the protection of Metropolis and Earth is left in the hands of other heroes such as Supergirl, Guardian, Mon-El, Flamebird and Nightwing (hence the title). Unknown to Superman and his allies, General Sam Lane, Superman's presumed dead father-in-law, heads a secret government project designed to destroy the "threat" of the Kryptonians, even if it means provoking a conflict. At his disposal are some of Superman's oldest enemies, including arch foes Lex Luthor and Brainiac.
