Robinson and Chang dig into the wreckage following the explosion of the Science Police headquarters at the end of the previous issue of Action, in Superman 696 (March 2010).
Nightwing digs Lois Lane, his “mother,” out of the rubble. The Guardian is now convinced of the innocence of Nightwing and Flamebird, and runs interference for them with General Lane.
Mon-El and the Guardian stop all of Lane’s troops, allowing the two wanted Kryptonians to escape. Mon confronts Lane, but does not attack him. He simply lets the general know that he has learned all of his manipulations, and despite the public’s love of Lane, intends to see that the truth gets out.
Another Legionnnaire gets revealed, as Control is found in the wreckage, unconscious. She has partly transformed back into Chameleon Boy.
The story continues in the next issue.
