"The Lesser of 2 Monsters"
Writer: Scott Lobdell
Penciller: Javier Fernandez
Inker: Javier Fernandez
The monster is Mother Herd, a former foe of Alpha Centurion. With Doomed doubting himself the fight is down to Clark and the Alpha Centurion. When Doomed regains a little confidence he rejoins the fight and helps push Mother Herd and her babies to the riverside. The monster then picks up a nearby ship and smashes it down on the trio of heroes. Elsewhere Reiser's Aunt is walking her dog Oui Oui when civilians race away from the fight and warn everyone to run away from Mother Herd. Oui Oui realizes Reiser is in trouble and races to help him. Reiser wakes underwater and sees Clark pinned under the ship wreckage. As Clark begins to black out, drowning, Doomed pulls him free, grabs what is left of the ship and uses the sharp edge to decapitate Mother Herd. Crawling out of the water with Clark he is then faced with Alpha Centurion. The faux god tells them he is a hero that fights monsters and despite his heroics, Alpha Centurion swears that he must still die. Centurion is sucker punched by Clark who also turns on Reiser but with the intention of taking him back to S.T.A.R. to undergo tests. Reiser gains the ability to speak in his monster form and transform back to human at will. Reiser points out that Clark chose to be a hero, despite the fact half the world hated and feared him and the other half loved him. Clark above all chose to be Super, to use his gifts for good. He chose to try and make the world better and he asks Clark why he doesn't get to try to do the same thing? Superman isn't convinced that Reiser is genuine but when he sees Oui Oui run onto the scene and shower Reiser with kisses, he tells the teen that if a dog loves him, he can't be all bad, but he'll be watching and waiting to see that Reiser lives up to his promise to use his powers for good. As Clark takes a knocked out Roman away with him, Reiser grabs Oui Oui, changes into Doomed and leaps into the sky.
NOTE: Doomed continues as a member of the Teen Titans as of issue #14.
