Cliffs Notes and spoilers via Newsarama

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
We join the battle mid-destruction, with the heroes fighting Kryptonian worker-drones who are protecting the Fortress. We see in flashback that the Justice League came up with their strategy while visiting the underground lab of Dr. Veritas, Superman's genius friend we met in an earlier issue. But Batman's strategy requires Superboy to use his powers to disrupt the force-field H'el put around the Fortress, he finds out the villain designed the barrier in a way that would give Superboy psychic backlash.

Supergirl is still being duped inside the Fortress, where she's discovering all of Superman's high-tech toys and remarking that he should use the alien technology to accomplish things on earth. H'el uses psychic powers to convince Supergirl they're doing the right thing saving Krypton.

But Superboy has succeeded in disrupting the shield, and various members of the Justice League get to show off in action-comic-book fashion, working their way into the Fortress through various obstacles. H'el has seemingly left the Fortress, and he activated a mysterious alien prison/teleporter Superman found. A beam fired from the thing almost hits Superboy, but Superman pushes him out of the way and gets hit. Superman is torn to pieces.

After Batman points out that the beam is some type of teleporter, Superboy decides to follow Superman into the beam. (Apparently, the Justice League says "screw that!" and doesn't follow.)

Meanwhile, at a temporary research facility in the Himalayas, two researchers in high-tech snowsuits are investigating "some kind of event" a few months ago — the release of seemingly alien energies. A monstrous alien pops out and says "After Months of Silence... The Oracle heeds my summons -- and a world dies!"
