Synopsis for "New Krypton (Part VIII of X) - Death in the House of El"
Zor-El falls as Reactron stands hovering in triumph above him. Upon seeing her father fatally wounded, Supergirl rushes to his side, but Reactron and his partner, Metallo, manage to elude capture. Superman bashes through several Brainiac Probes as Zor-El dies in his daughter's arms.
In Metropolis, Cat Grant cannot wait to launch another exposé against Supergirl. News of Zor-El's death comes over the wire, and Lana Lang warns Cat to leave Supergirl alone. Cat responds by stating that Supergirl should begin looking for a good lawyer.
Funeral services are held for Zor-El at the Fortress of Solitude. His widow, Alura, provides the eulogy. After the service, Alura blames the residents of Earth for her father's death, but Superman insists that she should not judge all of humanity for the actions of a few. His words seem to have no effect on Alura however. Later, in secret, Alura meets with a squadron of Kryptonian soldiers, including Commander Gor. These are men who were once loyal to General Zod and are anxious to claim this planet as their own.
Supergirl later meets up with a masked Kandorian super-hero calling herself Superwoman. Superwoman expresses her condolences to Kara and tells her that she would like to be her friend. Afterward, Superwoman flies off with a grim expression upon her face.
