    A snowball fight amongst the Tiny Titans at the Fortress of Solitude quickly turns into a Tooth Fairy Party. A mysterious package arrives containing toys and action figures. But they're a trap laid by Toyman. A press of a button turns all of the toys against the kids! Suddenly, Superman arrives with burgers, which are promptly stolen by one of a multitude of flying mini-Supermen. Superman quickly deduces that Toyman is behind the "attack," which moves into a second phase when Toyman unearths a giant toy dinosaur from under the snow near the Fortress. The Super Pets come to the rescue, and Toyman is knocked inside the Fortress itself. He readies his remote control for a final blow but all that happens is the flying toys fall promptly out of the air, leaving the Fortress quiet and Toyman defenseless. Seems he should have bought the extra batteries, after all. The dinosaur is later moved to the Batcave, where the Super Pets and Bat Pets meet for the first time. Three figures of elemental-like appearance - earth, fire and water - watching from a distance and proclaiming that they will find the Super Family on Earth. Meanwhile, at Metropolis Jail, Lex Luthor makes a visit to Toyman and gives him a chunk of Kryptonite, telling him he'll never need batteries again!

    A final meteorite is on its way to destroy the Earth. This one's going to be the one. Not even Superman can stop it. Or can he? For inside that very meteorite, that very Superman, along with Steel and some of their pals from the Justice League, are doing everything they can to stop Darkseid, meteorite pilot and all around evil doer, from carrying out his evil designs. It doesn't look good for the good guys, what with Darkseid's Omega Beams following them around and all the Parademons. On Earth, meanwhile, Lex Luthor and Miss Tessmacher are on a boat in the ocean. Lex has a Kryptonian crystal and a hollow Kryptonite tube that he's going to [Superman Returns] and then live happily ever after with Mess Tessmacher and their clone Lex son in their very own Kryptonite Fortress of Domestic Oblivion. Back on the meteorite, the battle rages on. None of the Justice League members can stop Darkseid. Eventually, he uses his Omega Beams to ensnare the League in the meteorite itself and it begins to seem that all is indeed lost. Down on Earth, Jimmy Olsen spots the fiery meteorite and uses his signal watch to call Superman. Hearing the sound, Darkseid mocks the Man of Steel, points out that the humans are starting to panic. But Jor-El, Lara, Supergirl and Superboy - all of them together at the Fortress of Solitude, also hear the watch. Superboy calls Robin, surrounded at Wayne Manor by Beast Boy and multiple super pets, and says they need help. Then he and Supergirl fly off to the meteorite, where they express surprise that their lunch lady - Darkseid - is being a bad guy. Apparently, Darkseid is only evil on the weekend. And then, just as the meteorite is about to reach Metropolis, it is stopped, caught mid-air by the super pets with the assistance of Green Lantern B'dg, who could be mistaken for a pet. Meanwhile, at the Kent Farm, Jor-El and Lara pay a visit. They want to thank the couple who raised their son, though Jonathan Kent seems to be confused about whether they know that Clark Kent and Superman are the same person. That's when the meteorite arrives, set down with a thud in the field. Darkseid realizes it's late and decides not to continue defeating them - and anyway, he's got work tomorrow. Then everyone gathers around, the world is safe again, Superman tells Lois he's Superman, which she says she already knew, Batman tells them to kiss, and they do.
