Wonder Woman and Hawkwoman are subdued by Luthor’s Liberators, but Green Lantern’s ring reveals that they are not robots, but cloned Kryptonian replicants. While the JLA members release their compatriots, Lois discovers that Luthor found Kal-El’s ship and traces of his DNA from which he created the Liberators. In Smallville, Jimmy, who has been grafted with Kryptonian DNA, joins the Liberators in the fight with the JLA. When a mysterious Amish man tries to stop the fight, Jimmy incinerates his parents. The Amish man and Jimmy fight until Jimmy’s Kryptonian DNA graft fails and he crumbles to dust.
