Synopsis for "Titans"
Across town at the Solar Center, Doctor Bruce Gordon transforms into the Spirit of Vengeance known as Eclipso. He places one of his black crystals into a refracting dish at the Solar Center sending a beam of black energy into the sky. The beam splinters, arcing back downwards striking several people – all of whom transform into obedient servants of Eclipso.
Superman breaks off from fighting Sabbac (as he is vulnerable to magic) and flies off to face Eclipso. He sends his eclipsed servants to overtake the man of steel but he pushes them back with a blast of arctic breath. Superman cuts Eclipso off from the crystal that provides his power, transforming him back into the body of Bruce Gordon. With Eclipso's influence eliminated, all of his brainwashed underlings return to normal.
Captain Marvel meanwhile continues to fight Sabbac. He discovers that the root of Sabbac's powers is very similar to his own. He tricks his evil adversary into saying his own name aloud, thus transforming him back into the frail Timothy Barnes.
As the immediate dangers pass, Superman and Captain Marvel say goodbye to one another, and Superman flies off back towards Metropolis.
