Synopsis for "The Big Picture"

In The Oblivion Bar, a man calling himself Arion hits on Traci Thirteen and her friend. In the background, Manitou Raven communes with his widow. Outside, rebuked, the man calling himself Arion encounters the real Arion, who appears in giant head form and taunts him. Superman returns to Metropolis, only to find the Young Gods flying about, causing trouble. Superman starts to corral them, but Lightray appears and tells Superman to take the night off to solve the pressing issue that's bothering him: Arion's portent of disaster.

The "fake" Arion, held by the "real" Arion debates his own worth, having helped save the world back during the day of vengeance. The "real" Arion indicates that perhaps the imposter can be of some use.

As Superman talks with Lightray, some of his charges approach, holding baby Chemos. Superman turns to take care of the problem, but Lightray insists, given how weighed down Superman's spirit is, that he take the night off and consider things.

At Lexcorp, Superman talks with Lana about how Lexcorp is tanking. She advises Superman that if he plans on quitting, he should give to the world in scientific ways, like exploring the oceans or space, but urges him not to quit.

Superman talks with Lois, who tells him to tell Arion to go scratch. She sends him off to think alone, which he does, on the moon, staring down. As he returns at daylight, he saves a kid falling off a building, and finds that Lightray has set everything to right. Arion confronts Superman, and when Superman has resolved not to quit, Arion casts a spell on him to take over his mind, which begins taking effect.
