    Bryan Q. Miller, Chris Cross, Marc Deering
    Lois and Clark finally are able to get intimate with each other in the Fortress of Solitude, thanks to some help from Queen Industry satellites that momentarily blocked Lex Luthor's ability to track Superman's radiation signal. With the Jor-El A.I. shut down, Clark is hard at work using the Fortress's technology to rid himself of the isotope to which Lex exposed him.

    Bryan Q. Miller, Chris Cross, Marc Deering
    Otis finds Lex Luthor asleep at his desk. Both of them are surprised to find Lex waking there. They discuss recent events and how they have led Lex to mistrust Superman. At the Daily Planet, a former intern of Lois's stares at a photo of Lois and Clark, ruminating out loud about Clark's eyes and the secrets they hide as Lois arrives on the scene in a super-whoosh before coyly talking about absent Clark in terms of his "powers," calling on the Planet to write about something other than Superman. Superman, meanwhile, with the brief help of a boy named Billy, saves a school bus load of children, the bus suspended high above the street and, it turns out, only to distract Superman from the real crime. Not even a bad guy with Lexcorp teleportation technology can escape a Superman who can super-suspend your animation.

    Bryan Q. Miller, Chris Cross, Marc Deering
    Superman hands the teleporting bad guy over to the police while the children from the suspended bus look on and boo the captured thug. As Superman flies off, Bruce Wayne and Barbara Gordon discuss the shades of light and dark that define the space between Metropolis and Gotham. Over lunch, Bruce invites Lex Luthor to join him in a joint venture energy project. Lex declines, which Bruce says is a relief - his knowledge of the Veritas "cult" (an invitation from Lionel Luthor to join which Bruce's father declined) has evidently led Bruce to mistrust the Luthors. Superman arrives and wants to talk with Lex. They examine the control chip from the teleportation suit, and Lex says that Lexcorp designed the chip but not the suit. Superman has reason to think the suit's mastermind could be Toyman, but he's been under constant supervision in "hyper-solitary" at Stryker's Island prison. Meanwhile, Batman has infiltrated Stryker's and apprehends Bruno Manheim, leader of Intergang and Batman's best bet to find Joe Chill. Already on site, Superman intervenes but Batman attacks him.

Labs is making in their investigation into Chloe-2's spaceship and the "Crisis," as well as Chloe's ongoing unease with having watched Chloe-2 die. Oliver offers her the distraction of figuring out where the "gibberish" emails he has been receiving on his phone are coming from just before hearing about the episode over at Stryker's Island and dashes off as Green Arrow. At the penitentiary, Batman and Superman fight. Batman reveals that his glowing chest symbol is not just a design feature, it's red sunlight. Batman started the fight to misdirect Superman's attention away from Bruno Manheim and Nightwing (whom Arrow intercepts).

Superman, meanwhile, has flown with Bruno Manheim up into the sky for an interrogation, which leads to verifiable information about Joe Chill, the killer of Bruce Wayne's parents.

    Superman's makeshift Bat Signal gets Batman to a rooftop, where they talk about the situation with Joe Chill and agree to join forces to bring down Intergang. While watching surveillance video of the Stryker's Island incident, Lex Luthor is interrupted by Oliver Queen, who has traced the unusual emails he has been receiving back to Lex. Luthor denies he is involved, but the late-night time stamps on the message log pique his curiosity. Superman and Batman discuss tactics, but Batman disappears while Superman is in mid-sentence. Superman beats Batman to Chill's cell. Chill, it turns out, is enfeebled in his senior years, confined to a wheelchair and hooked up to an oxygen tank. Back at Lexcorp, Lex rises and walks, seemingly still asleep, to his office, where Otis records Lex's actions into a tape recorder and Lex, we are shown, is revealed to be acting under Tess's control, who is indeed sending emails to Oliver. Chill issues an apology for his crimes against Batman's parents, which Batman refuses to accept. As the two question Chill about the advanced weaponry in walks Oswald Loomis (aka The Prankster) with Mr. Freeze at his side.

    Bryan Q. Miller, Chris Cross, Marc Deering
    Lois Lane confronts Toyman in his cell, demanding to know about Oswald Loomis. Toyman shows little respect for the man and suggests that if Loomis is copying him, there's a chance he's been using meteor rocks. Back at the government building, chaos has ensued, brought about by Loomis's deployment of his advanced weapons. Superman tells Batman to get Joe Chill to safety, and Batman tries to do just that, but neither hero is prepared for the variations Prankster has built into his arsenal, including bullets with "heat-seeking" capabilities and others that glow ominously green...

    Bryan Q. Miller, Chris Cross, Marc Deering
    Oliver and Chloe call Lex in an effort to hack Lex's satellite and advance their investigation into the emails Lex has evidently been sending to Oliver. In the process, Tess appears and distracts Lex while Chloe notices that Superman seems to have been neutralized. At the safe house (where Lois has been unable to find out what's happened or to get inside), Prankster and Mr. Freeze make their escape, having encased Batman in ice, wounded Superman with the Kryptonite bullets and seemingly killed Joe Chill. Batman manages to break free and finds Superman, unconscious and probably dying. Eager both to protect his new collaborator's identity and save his life, Batman beats a double retreat, calling in mechanical back up. Enter (and immediately exit) the Batmobile, with Metropolis's Finest and Lois Lane alike in hot pursuit.

  • Smallville: Season 11 Chapter #21 [Digital Comic] (October 26)
    Bryan Q. Miller, Chris Cross, Marc Deering
    Lois, Green Arrow and the police are all in pursuit of Batman, now considered the lead suspect in the death of Joe Chill thanks in no small part to his having seemingly absconded with Superman (who tells Batman his name is Clark). As the vehicles speed through the streets of Metropolis, Batman proves he's one of the good guys by contacting Lois via Nightwing in order to figure out how to save Superman, who has four Kryptonite bullets in his abdomen. Lois tells Nightwing (who tells Batman) they have to remove the bullets and then expose Superman to yellow sunlight. As Nightwing takes remote control of the Batmobile, Batman performs the necessary surgery and then uses the sunlight technology in his armor, now recalibrated to shine in the yellow rather than the red spectrum. Meanwhile, thanks to Green Arrow, the Batmobile has eluded the authorities and arrives at Leviathan, Batman's shipboard base of mobile operations. But it seems Prankster put homing devices in his bullets; he knows where the heroes are.

Clark wakes up from his bullet wounds on Batman's Leviathan, with Lois at his side. They discuss the implications of Clark having outed himself as Superman to Batman and meet Barbara Gordon, aka Nightwing. Bruce and Clark discuss next steps, whereupon Bruce reveals he has built armored suits for himself and Clark. They decide to "step out for a bit," leaving Lois and Barbara behind on Leviathan. Meanwhile, Oliver Queen is trying to convince the police that he was not aiding a criminal operation but it's not going well until Chloe arrives with proof. Back at the port, a group of thugs descends on Leviathan, intending to pay Superman a visit while, over at Prankster's and Doctor Freeze's hideout, Prankster reveals he has a final prank in store for everyone...

    Bryan Q. Miller, Axel Gimenez, Diana Egea
    Loomis's grand prank is set in motion at Nellis Air Force Base, where a tampered Captain Carrot action figure from an air traffic controller's "happy meal" triggers the launch of a trio of stealth bombers. Over at Fries' hideout, Superman and Batman are confronted by a mech-suited Prankster who reveals that he has taken control of Freeze and set him loose to wreak havoc in Metropolis. Meanwhile, Leviathan's security system has alerted Lois and Barbara to the approaching thugs. Superman battles with Loomis, defeating him. Loomis, held aloft in Superman's grip, then gloats that "their blood" will be on Superman's hands, not just his, and that he, Loomis, has won. The stealth bombers from the Air Force base have just fired on Leviathan.

    Bryan Q. Miller, Kevin West, Marc Deering
    Batman, protected in thermal armor, arrives on the scene of Freeze's "cold nuclear" meltdown and rips the power cells out of Freeze's suit, thus averting sub-zero disaster. Soon after, Superman flies through the scene on his way to the port, where Leviathan is taking on water from having been struck by Prankster's missiles. Inside the sinking ship, Lois and Nightwing are dishing out some irony by rescuing their would-be assassins, who cannot swim, from drowning. As they plan their escape, Superman arrives and lifts the ship out of the water, saving everybody. Batman is impressed. Later, Superman flies to Gotham to see Bruce Wayne, whom he finds at the location of Thomas and Martha Wayne's murder. They shake on a deal to help each other out in future, if necessary. Back in Metropolis, Chloe tells Oliver she's pregnant and Lex tells Tess he's no longer worried about getting her out of his head. He's got other plans to use her to his advantage. Like discovering who Superman really is.

    Lex is using his mind exploration technology to learn about Superman's true identity from Tess, still trapped in his mind, when Otis interrupts the session to advise him of a problem. Out in the streets of Metropolis, a Dr. Jones who wants to be called Psimon is looking for Lex, whose Project Ares has apparently given the diminutive doctor his purple skin, an oversized and glowing-through-his-skull brain and some kind of indeterminate psycho-molecular power. Psimon is not convinced a peaceful resolution to this situation is possible and shoots a purple blast at Lex, whom Superman saves and proceeds to lecture on the perils of not being prepared to defend himself from the ghosts of a past he can't remember. Superman then returns to finish with Psimon, who proves to be able to act more quickly than Superman thanks to his enhanced synaptic firing. But there's no time for gloating, Psimon, "There's always been someone faster." Impulse is back. First round (of ice cream) is on him.

    Otis greets Lois Lane at the Lexcorp offices, where she has come to interview Lex Luthor. They banter about what Lex is really all about until Lex, hearing everything through his open door, interrupts. Lois confronts Lex about Doctor Simon Jones and the Ares project. Lex recites Lexcorp boilerplate about the company's stance on the matter while sub-conscious Tess compels him to scrawl "Help!" on a scrap of paper and hand it to Lois, who reads it with surprise on the way out the door. Meanwhile, Superman and Impulse are enjoying a rematch of their race from years past, with Superman admitting he can no longer run as fast as he used to since he learned to fly. They race through Africa and pause to play soccer with some children in India. Over lunch, Superman tells Impulse about the radiation Lex tagged him with and the complications it has brought to his life while the two generally wax sentimental about what each means to the other. Soon, Chloe at Watchtower interrupts and alerts them to trouble in France. Superman proposes yet another race, Impulse offers a head start, and they are off into the sunset.

  • Smallville: Season 11 Chapter #27 [Digital Comic] (December 28)
    Bryan Q. Miller, Jorge Jimenez, Jorge Jimenez
    Lex visits Dr. "Psimon" Jones in his hyper-solitary prison cell and asks him to use his telepathic abilities to see whether Lex still even has his lost memories. The doctor, however, detecting Tess's presence and quietly taking her side, declines to help Lex, calling him an animal and a monster that will never atone for what he's done. In Paris, where Watchtower sent them at the end of last issue, Superman and Impulse intervene against Monsieur Mallah and The Brain, who, along with a battalion of monkeys, are trying to make off with priceless paintings from The Louvre in order to finance the creation of their own state. The outward force of Superman's power clap makes short work of the monkeys, but not before Bart has a brief but close encounter with his version of a personal demon.
