Zatanna and the Phantom Stranger are still hanging around after the previous issue, giving Superman some advice on dealing with Arion.

But then Subjekt 17 comes back, for one last big fight with Superman.  As with Arion, this enemy emphasizes that Superman is not from Earth.  Between the two of them, and Squad K, it’s beginning to irk the hero.

Arion, along with his captive impersonator, has taken up residence in an abandoned ancient outpost of Atlantis.  Superman hunts him down, but is unable to penetrate the magical dome.
