he offers to reunite them with their dead father
the three of them do battle
the next page shows martha and krypto
all of a sudden the wall explodes
throwing krypto across the room
standing their is a very dead black lantern lois lane
meanwhile clark and conner are still doing battle with superman of earth2 who knocks conner out and sends him plunging to his death
clark catches him in the knick of time
meanwhile in the of kandor on the planet new krypton supergirl returns due to her fathers death and is reunited with her mother
