The beginning of the issue briefly shows Supernova in what appears to be the Batcave. He looks around silently before focusing on an encased glove.
We next see Steel, with his newly acquired steel skin, rescuing people from a fire. He learns that Lex Luthor's metagene therapy gives Luthor the ability to take powers away as easily as give them out.
Back with Lobo, Starfire, Animal Man, and Adam Strange, we find out that the Emerald Eye of Ekron belongs to, coincidentally, the Emerald Head of Ekron who is now aware of their location.
This issue also contains "The Origin of Adam Strange" as a side-story.
