Synopsis for "The Coming of Atlas (Part IV of IV) - Man of Yore, Dog of Tomorrow"
Krypto has arrived to help his master, Superman. Snarling with rage, Krypto launches himself into Atlas. Lois is nearby and realizes that she has been wrong about her reservations over Krypto. She sees that the dog will fiercely defend that which he has sworn to protect.
Nearby, a shadowy figure standing on a rooftop communicates with an unseen person. He patches a command to a satellite which releases a ray of Kryptonite energy down upon Krypto. The ray doesn't seem to have any affect. The man activates a ray beam of a different color, but this too does not seem to deter Krypto. He attempts this several more times, each time releasing a beam of energy of a different color. Same results. Even Superman is stymied by this.
Suspecting that magic may be somehow involved in this, he quickly flies off to find Zatanna. Rather than Zatanna however, he instead finds Zatanna's younger cousin Zachary Zatara. The two don't exactly hit it off and Superman explains his situation. Zatara tells him that he will attempt to weave a spell that might amplify Superman's solar-induced defenses.
Superman races back to the fight scene and dives into Atlas, separating him from Krypto. The impact creates a huge crater in the ground and the two continue fighting. Only Superman emerges. Recognizing Krypto's valor, Superman announces to the surrounding civilians, "You want to cheer a hero? This is a hero! (pointing at Krypto) He's my dog. And you know what -- now he's your dog too."
