Synopsis for "New Krypton (Part VII of X) - Brainiac Lives"

Superman presses Alura for information identifying the Kandorians responsible for several Stryker's Island Penitentiary deaths and admonishes her for her decision to imprison known adversaries inside the Phantom Zone. Alura protests, citing that her initiatives are geared towards rebuilding the universe. She shows Superman dozens of bottled environments that they had liberated from Brainiac's Skull Ship. One of these environments contains the inanimate forms of Ultra the Multi-Alien and the Creature Commandos.

In Metropolis, Reactron teams up with Metallo and the two begin wreaking havoc in the city streets. This tactic is aimed towards drawing out Commandor Gor's soldiers who surround the villains and prepare to transport them to the Phantom Zone. They trick the Kandorians into transporting them to New Krypton where they begin attacking the Kryptonians. Armed with both gold and green Kryptonite, they mercilessly cut into the innocent aliens.

Simultaneously, Lex Luthor divines a way to tap into Brainiac's cybernetic network and activate his killer probe robots. The robots awaken inside Brainiac's ship and begin slaughtering Kryptonians alongside Reactron and Metallo.

Superman and the others release the Creature Commandos who assist them in fighting the villains. The opposing forces overwhelm them, however, and Reactron deals a fatal blow to Supergirl's father, Zor-El.

Elsewhere, Agent Liberty and the Guardian address an assemblage of heroes in regards to the Kryptonian situation.
