Synopsis for "My Life!"

A LexCorp employee named Mister McDonald rummages through the ruins of the Bank of Metropolis, desperately searching for something. A homeless man named Wild Bill tells him that his efforts are wasted. Everyone is now on the same playing field. McDonald will not be deterred however, and emphasizes how he is above the rabble of other people. His search is interrupted as three giant killer robots begin sifting through the wreckage, blasting away at any stray people they come across.

Superman meanwhile, continues his rescue efforts throughout the ruins of the city. He finds that Lex Luthor has been moved to one of the many triage units that have been set up throughout Metropolis. One of Luthor's handlers tells Superman that Lex is a vegetable. Although he can still think and hear everything around him, his body is wasted and useless.

Superman flies off and engages the killer robots. He knows that Luthor designed the robots as part of a "scorched Earth" policy to prevent Metropolis from ever being converted into another Engine City. The robots turn on him and catch Superman in a crossfire that blasts him out of the sky. Though invulnerable, the attack is devastating enough to stun the Man of Steel for a few moments. Wild Bill finds him and offers him a fruit box drink. Superman thanks him, then resumes his fight against the robots. Wild Bill rescues a young girl named Cindee who had been trapped in the rubble. Superman stops the last robot, which was moments away from destroying the hospice tent containing Lex Luthor's inert body.

With the battle concluded, Superman flies towards the Newstime Building. Mister McDonald, having acquired funds from his safety deposit box at the bank, is trying to bribe his way into the building, believing that it will provide him a more luxurious shelter. Superman dryly tells him that the Newstime Building is now being used as a hospital unit. If he wants to get in, then maybe he should volunteer to help.
