"The Oz Effect" - Conclusion
Writer: Dan Jurgens
Penciller: Viktor Bogdanovic
Inker: Viktor Bogdanovic, Trevor Scott and Scott Hanna
Superman has had enough of Oz. Between the manipulation of Jon and being responsible for the recent atrocities occurring around the world, the man claiming to be Jor-El must be stopped. Before Superman can attack, Jor transports the two of them to what once was his prison. Words are exchanged regarding the imminent threat before Superman starts a fight. During the fight, The Man of Steel discovers the room that Mxyzptlk was imprisoned in and Doomsday held captive. Superman continues to question the validity of Oz's claims. Using the kryptonite lodged in his skull, Jor shoots green rays from his damaged eye. Superman fights back briefly, but grows weaker. Superman asks Oz a question: if Jor's prime objective is to protect Kal, why is he so willing to utilize the most lethal weapon on his own son? Jor-El is stunned for a moment, allowing Superman to make a move and break Oz's staff. Jor-El immediately becomes weaker, coming out from under the spell of whatever entity was manipulating him. Kal and Jor hug before a mysterious force steals Jor away and transports Superman to the Fortress. Returning to the Daily Planet, Clark explains to Jon and Lois what happened before setting out to restore hope on Earth.

Following the events of The Oz Effect, Superman has secluded himself in his Fortress of Solitude. The Man of Steel reboots Kelex and has him search for any system tampering before having the robot run a search for Jor-El and Mr. Oz in its data files. According to Kelex, Jor-El really is Mr. Oz. Batman shows up to give Clark a pep talk. Both Clark and Bruce have recently had encounters with their supposedly deceased fathers (see The Button for Bruce's encounter with Thomas Wayne). Clark hears people in danger and flies off to save the day. At the Daily Planet, Perry White demands to know where Clark has been for the past few days. Lois covers for her husband by telling Perry that he had gone undercover with a hot lead. This buys Clark a few days. As she makes her way to the roof of the building Clark lands to discuss his problems. If Jor-El had such disdain for humanity and held so little faith in the goodness in mankind, what does that mean for Clark? Lois comforts her husband. Suddenly, Hal Jordan makes contact with Superman. A file that Supes had requested from the Green Lantern Corps is available for viewing on the sentient planet Mogo. A portal is opened and Superman makes the trip to the headquarters of the GLC. On Mogo, Superman meets up with Hal as Green Lantern Salaak brings up a video of Krypton moments before its destruction. Clark watches his ship leave the planet, but as the video reaches the point where Jor-El was supposedly saved from Krypton, the video becomes distorted. Salaak moves the recording forward a bit. The video returns to normal, showing only the shattered remains of the planet. Someone has tampered with time and Superman intends to get to the bottom of the issue. The Man of Steel returns home, fills Lois in, and then makes his way to the Justice League watchtower. Clark needs to see what really happened with his own eyes. He boots up the cosmic treadmill and sends himself back in time to the destruction of his home world. Seconds after Superman vanishes, Booster Gold arrives through a portal with a warning: Superman must not travel back in time if the universe is to survive.

Booster Gold and his robot Skeets have arrived too late to stop Superman from going back in time. Before he can get Superman's exact temporal coordinates from the cosmic treadmill, Flash arrives to lay the smackdown on Booster. As a result of the continuity changes over the past few years, Flash has no recollection of Booster Gold and treats him like an intruder. As the two heroes fight in the Watchtower, Superman makes his way to Krypton moments before its destruction. Before Superman can see if there's any validity to his father's story, a chronal storm hits him. During the storm, familiar and unfamiliar events flash before his eyes of Krypton's history. As the storm weakens, Clark finds himself on Krypton well before its destruction. Back in the Watchtower, Booster manages to subdue Flash by having Skeets use the Watchtower's defense system against him. The cosmic treadmill is placed in Booster's time sphere and the two set out after Superman. Over at the Daily Planet, Steve Lombard shows Jon his collection of Booster Gold memorabilia. Jon is unimpressed and after Lombard's tour, goes in search of his mother. Through a window, Jon sees his mother talking to Perry in his office. Using his super hearing, Jon discovers that his grandfather has been captured leading a black ops mission against the corrupt government of Logamba. According to Perry's sources, his execution is to be streamed live. With no rescue mission planned, Sam Lane is likely going to die. Unfortunately, Sam never got to meet his grandson. Lois decides then and there that she is not going to let her father die. In the time stream, Booster and Skeets have difficulty reaching the moment in time before Krypton's destruction as their destination is changed. Meanwhile, Superman lurks in the shadows to avoid detection. If he changes anything in the past, the consequences in the present could be severe. It is then that he witnesses his father and General Zod working together as friends. Taken aback, the Man of Steel steps out of the shadows for a moment. Booster arrives and attempts to zap him into the darkness, but the two heroes are spotted by guards. Superman is hit in the arm by a laser blast and is wounded. Under Krypton's red sun, he is powerless.

Superman and Booster Gold are on the run. With Superman powerless, the duo are in a bind trying to defend themselves against soldiers in Kryptonian battle suits. Thinking quickly, the Man of Steel grabs one of Booster's wrist cannons. With everything the two have observed, it is evident that time has been re-written. The two manage to escape momentarily and fly off to the Jewel Mountains with the assistance of Booster's flight ring. Nestled in the mountains is Gold's time bubble. According to Skeets and Booster, time has been altered in a unique way. When whatever force arrived to take Jor-El from Krypton before its death, time became slightly splintered. That removed piece of time is being filled naturally, but the presence of Superman in the past makes definite changes to the timeline. Superman and Booster Gold need to leave now if things are to remain the same in the future. Over in the capital, Jor-El and Zod review the footage of the intruders only to discover that one wears the symbol of the House of El. Zod assumes the potential act of sabotage is the work of Black Zero and sends Eradicators after them. Back in the Jewel Mountains, Booster and Superman are ambushed by Zod and three Eradicators. A fight ensues with the Man of Tomorrow taking on Zod. On Earth, Lois and Jon wait in The Pentagon to meet a General regarding the U.S. Government's plan on rescuing General Sam Lane. Because Lane acted on his own without authorization, there are no plans to rescue the General. Meanwhile on Krypton, Superman and Booster are under pressure to leave the past as Jor-El approaches the Jewel Mountains. If Jor-El and Kal-El meet, things are sure to get worse for the time stream. Quickly, Booster and Skeets force an opposed Superman into the time bubble and set coordinates for the Justice League watchtower seconds before they left. As the bubble enters the time stream, Superman watches everything that happens to this alternate Krypton. In this alternate reality, Krypton explodes, but its people survive thanks to space travel. The Kryptonians settle on a new planet where Jor-El and Lara achieve high status and have a second child - a daughter. Kal-El marries and has a daughter. The El family becomes highly respected for their contributions to the survival of the planet. As the time bubble traverses through the time stream, the drive unit begins failing followed by the failure of the bubble's chronal drive. Exiting the time stream, the heroes find themselves in 25th Century Gotham. They're not alone as a lone Eradicator has managed to follow them.

Superman and Booster Gold, now in 25th century Gotham, fight off the Eradicator that followed them through the time stream. The moment in time they landed in is shortly after Booster stole time travel technology, meaning the time hopping hero is currently a wanted man. With the time sphere damaged, it is imperative that the team find parts to repair their only means of escape. Earth forces pick up on chronal energies and send an air squadron out to investigate. Back in the battle, the Eradicator lets out a high intensity pulse blast that knocks Booster out. Skeets tells Superman to abandon Booster to distract the locals, save the time sphere, and prevent the people of the 25th century from discovering Superman. Reluctantly, The Man of Steel agrees as Booster is surrounded and imprisoned. Back in the present, Lois sneaks into a military base to board a plane headed for Logamba. Jon, who was supposed to be staying with the Whites, sneaks on the plane as well. As Booster comes to, he finds that he's been thrown into a cell with his father, which displeases him greatly. Elsewhere, Skeets fills Superman in on why Booster stole time travel technology and how his father was an abusive man. In the prison, Booster and his father are being threatened by an agent named Broderick. Taking the opportunity, Booster's father knocks Broderick out and plans to make a jailbreak, allowing Booster to answer to every crime lord his father owed money to. Before Booster's father can make an escape, Superman knock him out and frees Booster. The time sphere is repaired, but before they leave, the heroes visit Booster's mother. Entering the time stream once again, the two find themselves in another sticky situation as the Eradicator slightly reactivates and blasts the controls. This time, Booster, Skeets, and Superman land in a future where Zod is a supreme ruler.

A military plane flies low over the jungles of Logamba. Lois Lane makes her escape as she jumps from the cargo bay and deploys her parachute. Having landed safely, Lois and an ally named Hambi rendezvous and make their way to civilization. Elsewhere, Superman and Booster Gold have found themselves on a world where Zod is supreme ruler. They are confronted by a drone which Booster destroys. The two are soon engaged by another Eradicator. Powered by the world's yellow sun, Superman makes quick work of the android. Skeets informs the heroes that the planet they are on was once named Jekuul before Zod and his family took over. They are only a few decades into the future. Once again, the time bubble is damaged. This time, the power conduits are damaged. Superman offers to use his heat vision to make the repairs, but the alloys used are too delicate. Their salvation comes in the form of the materials used to construct the Eradicator android. The two heroes make their way to the city to find the materials they need. Back in Logamba, Lois and Hambi prepare to part ways as Borhonna - another of Lois' allies - enters to escort her to the city's palace. Lois dons a disguise and the two make their way through the war torn streets. Two soldiers stop them and reprimand them for breaking curfew, demanding to see their paperwork. Jon watches from the shadows as Lois takes down the soldiers. On New Krypton, Booster Gold and Superman sneak through the city with Skeets controlling a drone and an Eradicator android to give the illusion that they are prisoners. As the time travelers approach the foundry, they are met by two more Eradicator androids. Superman destroys these androids. As the three enter, the real Eradicator arrives and a battle breaks out. While Superman handles The Eradicator, Booster looks for the parts they need. Suddenly, a man swiftly takes the heroes down. This man is Lor-Zod, son of General Zod.

Superman and Booster Gold face defeat as Zod, Lor-Zod, Ursa, and The Eradicator blast them with an intense wave of heat vision. Suddenly, one of The Eradicator's cyborg soldiers temporarily distracts the Kryptonian villains and frees Superman and Booster. In his final moments, Skeets had managed to override and commandeer one of the cyborg soldiers. Finally free, Superman is able to lay the smack-down on the villains so he and Booster can escape. After punching Zod up into the air, Lor-Zod and Ursa grab The Man of Steel's arms and attempt to rip them from his body. Before The Eradicator can get involved, Skeets overrides the systems of his entire army. Lor-Zod prepares to rip Kal-El's heart out before Booster arrives, holding Zod hostage with a piece of Kryptonite. Lor-Zod isn't phased as Booster killing Zod would make his transition into ruler of New Krypton easier. Shocked by her son's sinister revelation, Ursa momentarily lets down her guard. Superman frees himself and the heroes make their way to the time sphere, just barely escaping. In the time sphere, Superman learns that time and history are malleable. After a brief conversation, Superman convinces Booster to take him to Krypton to discover the truth about his father. Jor-El's claims prove to be true as moments before its destruction, he is snatched away from death. Superman watches as his world dies in front of him and requests to be taken home to Jon and Lois. Arriving in the present, the two prepare to board the Justice League watchtower to smooth things over with The Flash for taking his cosmic treadmill. Before they can make it to the watchtower, Skeets alerts Superman that his family is currently in Logamba. The Man of Steel rushes off before hearing that his family was shot and killed. Booster sends himself back in time to the moment just before Jon, Lois, and Sam's deaths. Swiftly, he takes out the gunmen. With Clark's family saved, they board a helicopter. As they take off, an explosive is shot at them. Superman arrives just in time to intercept the weapon as his family makes a clean getaway. Later, Booster, Superman, and Flash clear up the matter of the borrowed cosmic treadmill. After the issue is resolved, Booster and Skeets return to their time. Booster is prepared to own up to altering the timeline.

"What Would Superman Do?"
Writer: Dan Jurgens
Penciller: Will Conrad
Inker: Will Conrad
Sam Lane arrives at the Kent apartment. Jon is excited to spend time with his grandfather, but before long, Lois and Sam get into an argument. It all begins with the exposé Lois had written about one of Sam's operations years ago. Meanwhile in space, Superman is on a mission from STAR Labs to take care of an asteroid a mile wide heading directly for Earth. Using his heat vision, he cuts the asteroid in two and sends the two halves in opposite directions, but not before securing some of the minerals housed in its core. Sam and Lois continue arguing with the subject shifting to Sam's distrust of Superman. Jon attempts to convince his grandfather that Superman is a purely good figure and would never become a tyrant or a dictator. In the Fortress of Solitude, Superman frees Cyborg Superman from the Phantom Zone as he's come to the conclusion that while the Zone is an effective prison, the negative effects it has on the minds of its prisoners is cruel and unjust. Upon being freed, Cyborg Superman attacks the Man of Steel, but he is quickly subdued. Superman places Henshaw in a specially crafted prison cell in the Fortress and gives him a shard of the mineral he extracted from the asteroid. The mineral has the ability to take a person's most precious memories and make them come to life when inserted into the Fortress's computer terminal (much like the ones in the Christopher Reeve Superman films). Henshaw is shown a memory of him and his friends enjoying a meal at Christmas time. At the Kent apartment, Sam Lane prepares to leave until Clark arrives. After some rationalizing and communication, Sam and Lois begin the process of mending the rift between them. The family then enjoys a meal.

While taking down some heavily armed criminals, Superman inquires about who is responsible for the fires popping up around Metropolis. The Man of Steel comes away from the scene with no new information. At the Daily Planet, Clark turns in his story about the recent bust his alter ego took part in. After a bit of discussion, new hire Robinson Goode informs Perry that she's heard that Superman was responsible for the fires (see The Man of Steel #6). This misinformation doesn't sit well with Clark who goes to the Metropolis fire department. There, he meets Deputy Chief Melody Moore who corroborates Goode's story of a boy coming to the station and pinning the fires on Superman. After a little research, Superman shows up at a school in Metropolis where he finds Darryl Conners, the boy who claimed Superman to be the arsonist. Moore and Superman discover that a bald man paid Conners $300 to frame the Man of Steel. Conners is sentenced to a week of community service at a food bank in lieu of a more serious punishment. Unfortunately, as Superman is a suspect, he is unable to actively participate in the investigation because he could possibly have a vested interest in protecting himself. Back at the Daily Planet, Clark looks through every bald criminal he knows who would have it out for him. There he is bombarded by Trish, the gossip columnist who interrogates him about the whereabouts of his wife. She mentions the gossip tidbit that Lois left Clark for Superman, but Clark brushes her off and sets out as Superman to further investigate the fires. In an unknown facility, a man is monitoring the Man of Steel as he flies around the city. The man relays his findings to a group of criminals in a lead cylinder where a secret meeting is being held. There, a new villain makes herself known as both the leader of the gang and the one behind the fires. Her name is The Red Cloud and the fires are only one part of her plan. Elsewhere in the city, Lois Lane types furiously about her secrets, including the details about her marriage to Superman.

In the middle of Metropolis, a man falls to his death in broad daylight. A Daily Planet article written by new hire Robinson Goode claims that Superman dropped the man. Perry has a hard time believing that Superman would blatantly murder a criminal, especially since he was in Seattle with the Justice League at the time of the incident. Clark is sent out to fact check Goode's story and learn more about Yogurt, the street name of the dead gangster. In a shady parking garage, a mob boss named Moxie keeps tabs on Superman's location when he is confronted and killed by a blood lusted Guardian before Red Cloud appears. At Metropolis General Hospital, Maggie Sawyer and two MSCU officers come looking for a now hospitalized Guardian. Struggling to speak, he gives the MSCU the name of the new villain. Meanwhile, Clark enters a seedy bar where he comes across some thugs who knew Yogurt. Clark buys a round of drinks and in their drunkenness, they reveal that Yogurt was behind the fires. The whole plan was to distract Superman with the fires while they engaged in more heinous crimes. Clark brings this information to Perry. Clark excuses himself and flies out into space to takes out his frustration on an asteroid field. After returning to the office, Clark is greeted by Cat Grant who lets it slip that Lois' new book has been released. Elsewhere, Robinson Goode meets with her real employer and declares that she wants a piece of Kryptonite.

At the Daily Planet, Clark is having a difficult time convincing Perry that the person behind the recent string of murders and fires is the Red Cloud. Because Red Cloud is a new villain, Perry questions Clark and tells him to investigate further. Clark and Robinson Goode come close to collaborating on the story before White calls the mild-mannered reporter into his office where he is shown a picture of Lex Luthor visiting Lois Lane at her new apartment. A flashback shows what happened two issues ago when Clark found Lois in disguise. Having returned early from the deep space adventure with Jor-El and Jon, Lois started thinking about her family. With her husband an A-list hero and her son a hero in training, there is no way her family could ever be normal, and that they should embrace that. She came to the decision that while her son is out growing and her husband is out being Superman, she'll get back in touch with herself by writing a book and living alone. Lois makes it clear that she and Clark will not be splitting up and that this is just a temporary thing. In the present, Copperhead is threatening to kill Daily Planet gossip columnist Trish over a story she had written. Superman makes quick work of the threat and catches up with his old friends. Later that evening, Superman goes to visit Lois, who has seen the gossip piece the Planet wrote Lex's visit. Lois and Clark go for a flight under the light of the moon.
