Synopsis for "Fall and Rise of the Star-Child!"
An alien race, the Dyrlians, selects Superman and Supergirl to be the surrogate parents of Rovos, a synthetically-born child who will grow to maturity in a day. The child develops mentally and physically under their care, but seems to have no emotions. To remedy this, Superman feigns a battle with the Galactic Golem and the Parasite, which Supergirl and Rovos watch on a viewscreen. Rovos experiences love, hate, joy, pride, fear, grief, and courage during the battle and when he sees the "Parasite" unmasked as Superman. Rovos even laughs at the absurdity of it all. Superman tells him that the Dyrlians, who abandoned their organic bodies long ago to put their minds in android bodies, had gradually lost their emotions and needed Rovos to experience them and, unwittingly, transmit them back to his creators. Supergirl admits that they are going to miss him, and Rovos, shedding tears, says that he will miss them as well.
