Full summary:

  • July: As Arisia is relaxing on a Los Angeles beach, she hears screaming and, investigating, spots a flying Viking-like figure with a gleaming sword rampaging through the streets. Meanwhile, Clark Kent (Superman) is about to have lunch with Lana Lang when he spots a beautiful blond woman tearing up a street. Superman and Arisia end up fighting each other, neither knowing the foe they see before them is an illusion.

  • Using her ring, Arisia discovers that her enemy is actually Superman and uses Kryptonian to break through the illusion. Together, they are confronted by three members of the Honor Team of Thronn – Magicko, Strong Girl (who looks like Arisia's false appearance during the battle), and Golden Blade (who looks like Superman's false appearance during the battle). They explain that the deception was intended to use Superman's body to bring back their fallen fourth member, Energiman, after they discovered that he still existed in some form when they reunited during the Crisis. Superman volunteers his body freely, despite the risk of losing his life, and Energiman comes back to life. Meanwhile, Superman survives unharmed because Arisia transferred all the chronal energy she'd once absorbed to make herself an adult into Superman's body. The Honor Team of Thronn leave, and Superman suggests the now-teenaged Arisia meet the New Titans.
