Lois Lane arranges for an interview with G. Gordon Godfrey to find out some background information on him. But Godfrey shies away from personal details and continues to spew his anti-hero propaganda.
Meanwhile, Clark Kent is racing through the streets of Metropolis trying to avoid being struck by two twin laser beams that appear to be specifically targeting him. Due to a presidential order suspending superhuman activity, Clark refuses to change into Superman. He dives into the sewers where he hopes to avoid the death rays. But the twin beams strike him transporting him to the planet Apokolips.
