Cyborg hacks into a staff taken from one of Rao's prophets. He is overwhelmed processing the vast amount of information in both the staff and the Cathedral it uplinks to. But, as it turns out, there are thousands of cathedrals dispersed throughout the galaxy. With this technology, billions of people are linked to Rao, feeding him power. Stranded on Mount Olympus, Wonder Woman and Aquaman raid the god's armory in preparation for battle. Argo City, 250,000 years ago, a young Rao and Hal Jordan enter a modern day Infinity Corp building. They encounter their previously unseen enemy, Rao: from the future. The older, and more powerful Rao plans on recapturing Krypton. Inside another time's Infinity Corp building, The Flash and Dr. Vincent brace as the building crashes "somewhere." Superman is held captive in the heart of the cathedral. His plea for Rao to be honest with the people of Earth falls on deaf ears. Rao plans to genetically modify human DNA into an Earthling/Kryptonian hybrid. This will feed him even more power. Still bound, Superman crashes Rao's Cathedral into the moon.

Writer: Bryan Hitch

Brainwashed followers and prophets wonder where Rao has gone after watching the Cathedral abandon Earth in the previous issue. What they don't know, is that Superman crashed the gargantuan satellite into the moon. From the wreckage, Superman and Rao fight until Superman plows them both into a mountainside back on Earth. Despite the one-sidedness of the exchange, Rao rises unscathed. The destruction of the Cathedral has severed Rao's connection to the satellites around the galaxy, but he is still able to draw power from the people of Earth. Therefore, Superman's blows only harmed Rao's coerced disciples. Rao beats on Superman, who is badly hurt and out of options. Aquaman and Wonder Woman attempt to save the day with weapons they took from the Mt. Olympus Armory. Superman stops them, as again, it will only hurt the people of Earth. But Superman assures them: there's a plan. One hour ago: Batman sends a transmission to Superman. "Just buy us an hour." Present: A boom tube opens up, Wonder Woman pushes Rao through, the heroes follow. They tumble into the new Metropolis power plant. A half hour ago: Batman makes a deal with Parasite. If he survives, he gets set free. Present: Parasite jumps Rao, feeding off of his immense power. The idea is to use Parasite as a battery to recharge the damaged power planet (from the first issue) then shock Rao like a heart attack patient with an overgrown defibrillator. It should sever Rao's connection to his indoctrinated followers around the world. After adding the power of Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Superman, and the Flash's speed force to the mix, the plan works, but at a cost. Weakened, Rao escapes to capture the Stones of Forever, and Superman is dead.
