Synopsis for "Countermeasures"

The Prankster watches as Arion attempts to take control of Superman while Lois and Jimmy bear witness to the event. Superman uses his training with the Martian Manhunter in order to avoid Arion's spell, ultimately defeating it with his own willpower.

"Squad K" attacks Superman from out of nowhere mercilessly, engaging "Mind Control Alpha" protocol, attacking Superman with varying annoyances to slow him down. Two of the children from New Genesis remain, watching in amusement.

Arion is attacked by Squad K when they see him as the antagonist. Arion, deciding that Superman is too strong to be taken mentally, speeds away. At the same time, Lois and Jimmy check on Squad K's background. Superman, realizing that he's losing Arion, shrugs off the Squad K attack and pursues, having almost lost Arion.

As he does, he's hit by a giant pie from Prankster. He wipes away the lead-lined pie to reveal the Justice League with members of the Justice Society, prepared to take him down. Green Lantern tries to calm Superman, and Superman screams at him that he's fine. Meanwhile, Arion flees, and the New God children follow him.

Superman, not able to find Arion, goes to confront Squad K. They shake hands, and realize that Squad K is just a failsafe, parting amicably.

Superman uses a robot head found by Hourman in the pie truck to track down and incarcerate Prankster, then he hovers above the city, speaking to Arion, telling him that he'll track him down
