Busiek, Johns and Woods continue with the Up, Up and Away storyline, bringing Clark Kent back to being Superman, in Superman 651 (June 2006).
Lois and Clark meet with Green Lantern and Hawkgirl, after their rescue of Clark in the previous issue of Action. Hal offers Clark a Green Lantern ring, and though he toys around with it, he rejects the device.
Much more toying around is done by the Prankster, who causes all manner of havoc on the streets of Metropolis, which Hawkgirl and Green Lantern have to deal with.
The chaos is used as a cover while Luthor’s people abduct the Kryptonite Man from prison. Luthor also has a visit from Metallo, and steals his kryptonite heart, adding it his vast storehouse of the deadly element. We see Toyboy working with Luthor, but at this point have no indication of the robot’s connection with Toyman.
The story continues in the next issue of Action.
