Synopsis for "Panic in the Sky!: First Strike - Power Breakfast"

Panic in the Sky: The city of Metropolis erupts with a series of brilliant flashes and explosions as Brainiac's Skull Ship descends down upon it. Clark Kent, having just finished having lunch with Lois Lane, quickly changes to Superman and flies off to confront the menace. The ship counters Superman's efforts with deadly radiation blasts from its eyes and steel-coiled tentacles that emerge from the underbelly of the ship.

The people of Metropolis all share different reactions to the most recent crisis. Emil Hamilton meets up with Bibbo Bibbowski and Jimmy Olsen who promptly retreat to Professor Hamilton's laboratory. Lois Lane finds a disposable camera and begins taking her own snapshots of the calamity. The Gangbuster arrives and protects the children at Myra Allen's orphanage. At LexCorp, Lex Luthor finishes up a meeting with Mayor Berkowitz and Collin Thornton. Thornton leaves to return to the Newstime Building and runs into Jimmy Olsen. He is impressed by some of the photos that Jimmy had taken of an earlier incident.

Superman meanwhile, continues fighting against Brainiac's ship. He punches his way inside and reaches the command module, but Brainiac is not present. He is operating the ship via remote control. Superman destroys the inner workings of the ship, then heaves the entire thing into the bay. Brainiac sends a telepathic signal to Superman, alerting him that this attack was but a distraction for the real threat. Brainiac has commandeered Warworld and is coming to Earth.
