Week 22, Day 1
Metropolis: Luthor is given information on Supernova’s appearance with Wondergirl in which he get’s upset over as the information is three weeks old. Mr. Strauss, the employee giving Luthor the information – claims that Supernova spotted Lexcorp’s surveillance equipment and used his “power of disintegration on Lexcorp’s cameras”. Strauss then shows Cassie calling Supernova Kon-El to prove who Supernova is. Luthor becomes more angered and fires Strauss for wasting Lexcorp’s recourses on bad information to “retrieve the deluded, mewlings of a pathetic love sick teenaged girl who misses her boyfriend”. Supernova is then shown floating outside of Luthor’s window in the same stance as Superman. Luthor takes a red marker and makes Superman’s symbol on the window to show who he believes Supernova to be ***this is the scene you see during Next 52 from last issue***and then orders some new metagene test run on himself, Luthor.

Metropolis: Jon takes the stone and puts his grandfather out of his misery by suffocating him with a pillow. ***sorry Frank but yes another death. Maybe 52 is the number of dead characters by the end of the series***
Week 22, Day 5
Metropolis: Luthor is having an opening ceremony for the new “Lex Luthor School of International Business Studies and Policy”. During the party Jon Henry is watching things while under cover of hat and trench coat. He observes a man approach Luthor and starts yelling at him being a liar about the Everyman project being unlimited power. The man’s name is Ferry and he is escorted off of the premises by Luthor’s security. Jon follows Ferry outside to find out what was going on. It appears that Ferry had the therapy but Luthor turned off his power. Jon tells Ferry that he wants to hear his story and that he wants the world to listen too.
Dr. Magnus’: Magnus is talking to his brother David on the phone about Dr. Morrow disappearing and the two goons that showed up at his house. Magnus’ brother mentions SHADE and that it is an acronym. Magnus then packs Mercury up into a duffle bag on his way to leave his house. When Magnus get’s upstairs he is approached by a fake group of Metal Men made up of Iron, Lead and Platinum. Magnus turns on a super magnet that captures Iron, while Mercury leaves the duffle bag to go after Lead. Magnus then pulls out a vial and throws it at the fake Platinum ***the real Platinum’s head is seen downstairs in Magnus’ basement***which dissolves Platinum. Doc turns just before leaving the house to see Lead crushing Mercury. Once outside Doc looks up to see a huge robot and proclaims “I don’t want to be crazy again” in which the robot responds “Mad scientists only, Doctor Magnus” and fires an energy beam at Magnus’s house blowing it up. The huge robot is what you we silhouette on the cover with the Metal Men symbols.
