Following the startling events of "New Krypton," Earth finds itself without its greatest protector - Superman! And this "World Without Superman" is a very dangerous place, indeed. The only thing standing between the good (and not so good) folks of Earth and an impending shadow of doom are the all-new Nightwing and Flamebird! Earth's hatred for Kryptonians has only escalated - which is what makes it so odd that Nightwing and Flamebird pick now to become public Super Heroes! Meanwhile, Lois Lane finally meets with the man she thought long dead - her father, General Lane. But he has a message to deliver to his journalist daughter: "You're either with us or against us."
