We then cut to a farm in Iowa, where a "kindly couple" witness a ship fall from the sky on to their farm. Three beings wearing similar suits like Superman's uniform emerge from the ship, and begin preparations to "hide" their ship. Meanwhile back in Metropolis, Lois Lane reports that a Boom Tube has opened near the Lexcorp building, and Parademons have come through, and asks, is Darkseid launching an attack on Earth? Kalibak also comes through from the Boom Tube, and attacks the Lexcorp troopers who are attempting to handle the situation. Kalibak begins to make short work of them, when the three Supermen that crash landed on Earth earlier, show up on the scene and begin to make short work of Kalibak. As all this is transpiring, we cut back to Lois Lane's broadcast, where she asks the question, "Shouldn't Superman have been here by now"? In the Middle East, we see a family running from a missile attack, and are fortunately saved by Superman. Superman manages to shelter the family from an impending death, when his attention is caught by a young boy, chasing down his puppy, whilst trying to find safety from the bombs falling from the sky. Superman rescues the boy and his dog, when he is greeted by a mysterious dragon-like creature, which calls himself a "Messenger", and tells Superman that he must take the young boy Rafi whom he just rescued away from this land, and keep him safe elsewhere. A little while later, we find ourselves in Metropolis at what would appear to be the WGBS building, where Lois Lane is doing her newscast. Clark Kent is watching Lois on the monitors, while Rafi and his pup are playing with Jimmy Olson. Clark watches the news feed and watches the 3 Supermen take on the Parademons. Clark leaves Rafi in the care of Jimmy, and heads toward Lexcorp to join the action. Lois continues her coverage of the current events, where she is now joined by, via satellite feed, Lex Luthor. Lex spills his usual Anti-Superman drivel, only to be reminded by Lois that he has been against Superman for years, and they both contemplate what the origins are of the 3 newly arrived Supermen, Lex then asks the question, "Where is Superman?". A short while later, Superman indeed shows up, first he confronts Lex, vowing to return and have a serious talk with him in regards to the appearance of the Supermen, as Superman himself is unsure who they are, and where they came from. He then flies off to deal with the Parademon situation. The Parademons flee at the sight of Superman's appearance, back into a Boom Tube to their home of Apokolips. Instead of dealing with the 3 Supermen, Superman spots a familiar, mysterious figure watching the events from a far in the "Messenger", and confronts him about what he may know of the events that have transpired. The "Messenger" then transports both himself and Superman into the past to ancient Egypt, centuries from the present. He shows Superman the construction of the Sphinx, and then shows him whom it was modeled after, pointing to a figure that strikes an almost identical resemblance to Darkseid. "Messenger" then explains that it is not Darkseid, whom built the Sphinx, but his father...

Superman then questions Luthor, asking, what was on the back of the facility, that denizens of Apokolips were after. Luthor explains it was a red sun mote.

    We open from where the last issue left off last month. Kalibak is being made short work of, first by Superman, then Orion. Superman and Orion converse afterward. Orion tells Superman that he can take him to Rafi, or he can take him to the launch. Superman asks what the launch is. Orion explains that it is a red sun mote, created by Luthor for Darkseid to turn the sun from yellow to red, so that Kryptonian's could lose their powers. After learning all this from Orion, Superman flies off into space to the ship carrying the mote and destroys it by flying through it. Unfortunately he is a little too late, as the shattered mote manages to add a false color to the sun, making it orange in a small spot. Superman floats unconscious from the destruction of the ship, as his body shuts down. Meanwhile on the Apokolips side of New Krypton, Granny Goodness disguised as a kindly old lady attempts to take care of Rafi and his dog Isa, only to revel her true form, and terrify the young child. Back in space, an unconscious Superman is rescued by Orion, who tells Superman, that he was mostly successful in destroying the mote, save for a small orange spot in the sun. Superman replies that he can feel its effects on himself and will surely have effects on the other Kryptonians. On Earth, Darkseid and Luthor realize that Superman was able to prevent the mote from changing the sun from yellow to red. Luthor manages to double cross Darkseid this time, by placing him into a barrier/force-field, and manages to knock Darkseid unconscious, threatening Darkseid, to stay away from Earth.

Helping him power up from whatever happened in space. Eager to leave and continue his search for Rafi, Superman and Orion leave and head to find the boy.
