Talking with Lois Lane, he relates his origin, which is totally parallel to Superman’s.  Seeing pictures of Superman, he realizes why everyone acts as if he is familiar.  He compares him and Superman to Coke and Pepsi.

Not certain if his dimension hop to this world is tied to the B13 tech, he tries to join the other heroes, but the Eradicator shoots him into the Phantom Zone, fearing that he could be more harm than good, no matter what his intentions.  But their attempt to calm down the B13tech fails dismally, and Majestic escapes from the shattering Zone.

The story continues in the next issue of Action.
