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

Superman meets up several members of the JLA, JSA and various other heroes as they approach New Krypton. They demand that the Kryptonians who murdered members of the Science Police are turned over to them. Superman explains the Kandorians decided to capture several enemies of his to protect themselves and asks them to let him handle this crisis. He's given thirty minutes to hand over the murderers.

Superman flies away to meet his aunt Alura again. Alura is overseeing several scientists reverse-engineering the Brainiac's technology used to shrink Kandor. Superman asks her again to do the right thing and Supergirl pleads with her mother, but Alura again refuses. She openly declares to hate humankind and throws insults at her daughter and nephew. Superman repproaches her abusive treatment of Kara and then Alura explodes. She announces she will never turn over the killers, insults Kal y Kara once again and deploys a force to deal with the heroes awaiting outside.

Both sides engage each other. Superman tries to get his aunt to stop that madness. Supergirl attempts to back him up, but Alura threatens to disown her if Kara doesn't side with her. Supergirl protests her father would never approve of her actions and Alura states his kidness got him killed. Superman finally grabs Alura as trying to reason with her. Supergirl doesn't know what to do but she doesn't want to see her cousin manhandle her mother, so she tearfully punches him away.

Meanwhile, a team of magic-wielder Earth heroes show up to lend a hand.
