Synopsis for Superman & Batman: "The Prisoner of the Kryptonite Asteroid!"

Certain day in Gotham City, the GCPD and Batman are on the trail of a wanted criminal, who finds himself cornered and request to talk to Batman. The Dark Knight agrees and after a brief discussion, Batman is forced to let the criminal go in exchange for a mysterious stone tablet. Batman takes the object for further examination and he calls his friend Superman, who is shocked to learn that the tablet is from Krypton and reveals an untold story about his long-lost twin brother, a misshapen hunchback named Kor-El.

Soon, the world becomes convinced that Superman is responsible for his brother's disappearance, as it seems Kor-El was exiled into space in a Kryptonite asteroid and subsequently blotted out from his memory. Superman is induced to free Kor-El from the asteroid, which kills Superman due to Kryptonite radiation. With the Man of Steel gone, Kor-El is free to take control of Earth and becomes the new ruler of the planet under a vicious dictatorship. The JLA prepare a defense against the evil alien, but their efforts are futile and their only hope is a recently resucitated Superman.

Synopsis for Black Canary: "Wulf Hunt!"

Black Canary stops three lumberjacks from killing a wolf and her cubs. She learns that they were hunting for a wolf that killed their friend, Pierre Dubois. Later, she hears of Dr. Grant, a scientist and animal rights advocate, and finds him dead in his cabin. The Canary reads in Grant’s notes of how he transformed a bear and wolf into humanoids (one of which was Ursus). The diary breaks off as if Grant had died while writing it. Black Canary fights off the lumberjacks again, who fear they will be blamed for Grant’s death.
