Brainiac promises Luthor he'll be ruler of Earth, but Lex is more interested in "Project: Alien Farm". In Smallville Conner is needlessly worried he might be going bald, but he's just excited about seeing Cassie (Wonder Girl) again. With a little help from Krypto and Martha, Conner and Cassie share a romantic dinner out amongst the stars. Aboard Brainiac's ship, Luthor scans through the latest Earth newspaper stories, and is shocked to see a headline reading "Superboy Returns!"./In the 31st century Lightning Lad goes to visit his brother Mekt.

    Conner (Superboy) continues his "What did Superman/What does Lex Luthor do?" checklist. Conner asks the quirky Simon, "You think people are born bad?" while they discuss the mysterious Lori who seems to have bad luck follow her around (holy obvious super-power, Batman!). Krypto shows up carting along several of Conner's Rogues which leads Conner to think "Maybe Krypto can track down Luthor." When that is unsuccessful, Conner decides to look up Red Robin (Tim Drake) where the two old friends reunite and have a nice heartfelt talk showing that unlike Luthor, Conner does not "Alienate Friends". The issue ends with Lex asking to be dropped off in Smallville so he can find his "property" (Conner)./Polar Boy and Sun Boy team up on Tharr (Polar Boy's home planet) to catch Cryo-King, a Legion of Super-Villain wannabe. Polar Boy gets no respect from his home world or from Cryo-King. Brek (Polar Boy) lashes out and together, he and Sun Boy make short work of Cryo-King. The two Legionnaires discover a map of 21st Century Earth on Cryo-King who mysteriously tells our two heroes, "You think you're the only Legion with an espionage squad in the 21st Century?"
