Synopsis

Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman track down the energy trail of the Superman impostor. The trail leads the Trinity to China, where a Waynetech satellite has picked up Superman’s Solar Flare energy signature. Crossing Chinese borders, the three heroes are met by The Great Ten. The Chinese super-team wants them out of their country. After a short and brutal fight, they agree to listen to the trio. Superman explains they’re tracking down an energy being may have originated in China and has murdered people. Batman states the trail leads to the Loess Plateau.

The Great Ten escort the trio to Dr. Omen’s secret lab. Wonder Woman accuses Omen of collecting and manipulating residual streams of Superman’s solar flare and giving it some kind of sentience. Dr. Omen denies this, but the heroes discover Omen has indeed been collecting Superman’s energies and using them to create a new Superman. However her experiment hasn’t left her lab and it isn’t the Energy Superman.

All of sudden, Dr. Omen frees her experiment and he breaks out. The Great Ten insist they’ll handle it, and the Trinity agrees to leave the country immediately.

On Metropolis, Lois is visited by the Energy Superman.
