Synopsis Superman confronts Zor-El and Alura after teams of Kandorians have captured several of Superman's enemies and banished them to the Phantom Zone. She leads them into Brainiac's headship, where the Kandorians are trying to figure out how to free the cities and other beings that were captured. Some of Zod's men are still patrolling the Earth run across Metallo and Reactron, who surprisingly surrender to the Kryptonians. Luthor is experimenting on Brainiac, and proves that he can control at least part of Brainiac.
