In one of Kara Zor-El's 'City Fortresses' (one of hundreds of apartments she has scattered across the globe), Chris is saddened that society hates them as Kryptonians, Thara reminds him they are far more as demi gods.
Despite his misgivings, he decides to experience the Book of Rao Sunstone holobook. It goes through Kryptonian history and explains the story of the godling's love and of a mysterious third godling. When Chris returns from the book he is astounded to realize he IS Nightwing but his godling soul is trapped inside the Phantom Zone. Chris is determined to have his soul back so it can reunite with Flamebird and he with Thara. One problem - the Phantom Zone is dead...
Chris finally gives in to Thara and admits his love. They make love with a shadowy figure indulging in voyeuristic pleasure.
Thara awakens to be greeted by Jax-Ur/Dr. Pillings/the third godling who demands that they return to his Egyptian temple to pay the debt of saving Chris from his age disease.
Thara lies that Flamebird is guiding them to the temple of Ur however, by the time Chris realizes he's been tricked into it, he's face to face with Jax-Ur.
A hidden viral command Jx-Ur implanted to incapacitate him makes Chris grow Sunstone blades like it happened to his cousin Kara in the past. Chris falls down in front of what appears to be a giant Phantom Zone viewer.
Jax-Ur opens the window and a glowing hand - the hand of Rao himself - springs forth for his godling family.

Synopsis for "Captain Atom, Chapter Eight"
The Shadowpact learns about Captain Atom's situation and also showing their complete knowledge on Mirabai and the world she hails from known as Sorcerers' World. It is explained that Sorcerers' World is the heart for all magic on Earth and all other dimensions and alternate worlds including Gemworld, the Fifth Dimension, Myrra, the Land of Nightshades, The Green, The Red, and even Hell (though, only up to the gates).
Captain Atom desire a way back to Sorcerers' World in order to help the resistance and correct his past mistakes. Mon-El then tells Atom that he may have a notion that could help him, but doesn't reveal it until he is sure that it would work. After Mon-El left, the Shadowpact informs Captain Atom that given his Dilustel skin that repels magic, it is impossible for him to travel directly to Sorcerers' World or through any other magical dimensions as he would be expelled from entering. Hal Jordan also talks down the idea of using General Lane's gateways that brought Major Force into and out of Sorcerers' World from alerting Lane. Fortunately, Detective Chimp knows another way...
Instructed by Detective Chimp, Nathaniel is told to go into China while avoiding the nation's government-sponsored metahumans (specifically the Great Ten) as possible, and then traveling to the Himalayas and find a hard-to-find cavern. Once discovering it, Atom is to head inside where it will direct him to the underground world of Skartaris.
