Synopsis for "New Krypton (Part IX of X) - Hard Times!"

Members of the JLA, JSA and various other heroes intercept Superman as he approaches New Krypton. They demand that the Kryptonians are held accountable for the slain members of the Science Police. Superman assures them that only a small number of Kryptonians were responsible for the deaths and that he will bring them to justice. Guardian shows up and warns Superman that he has thirty minutes to produce the murderers before the heroes take them by force.

Superman flies to Alura and asks her again to surrender those responsible. Alura is in the middle of reverse engineering the Brainiac Probes that were once part of Kandor's defense system. She has no intention of relinquishing the murderous Kryptonians and openly supports their actions.

Meanwhile, the other citizens of New Krypton fly up to defend their city. All-out war breaks out as the Kryptonians trade blows with the heroes of Earth. The heroes however, are not unprepared for this assault. Guardian uses his shield to attack Commander Gor while Starfire uses her powers to absorb the solar radiation from the Kryptonians' bodies. Steel uses Kryptonite upgrades in his armor to take down several Kryptonians at once.

Superman plans on taking Alura into custody, but Supergirl arrives to defend her mother. Tearfully, she fights against her own cousin.

Meanwhile, members of Earth's mystic community show up to lend a hand.
