From DC Comics: "As Supergirl and Superboy battle the Eclipso-infected horde in Metropolis, Hank Henshaw takes the battle into the Hive-Mind that controls them, while Lex’s soldiers make plans to avoid the blame! As usual, Lex is one step ahead of everyone else – except Superman."

Superboy and Supergirl fight the Eclipsos.

Smallville - Chaos 010 (Digital-Empire)010

Hank tries to learn more about Eclipso.

Smallville - Chaos 010 (Digital-Empire)014

Supergirl and Superboy offer themselves to Eclipso.

In Metropolis, Superboy and Supergirl take down the possessed Bryce Gordon atop a building while a news chopper covers the action and the reporter inside is apparently arguing with her producer over whether or not to comment on Supergirl's outfit. The chopper is caught in the crossfire, and Supergirl rescues the reporter and the pilot. She also makes a point to thank the reporter for her "solidarity" on the outfit issue. At street level, Hank Henshaw battles another swarm of Eclipsos. The possessed civilians say that even though Hank wears the false god's symbol, he is not like him. They also tell him they can not understand what exactly he is and Hank says neither does he. Hank then utilizes probing cables that are part of his body to probe the minds of the Eclipsos and get a better idea of what they're dealing with. He learns that Eclipso has existed for many generations, many times as a deity both worshipped and feared by ancient cultures. Henshaw suggests that Superboy and Supergirl offer themselves to Eclipso, which will likely draw the entity out of all the normal humans in order to manifest itself in super-powered beings. While it attempts to do that, they believe they can stop it. Supergirl then goads Eclipso, and he takes the bait, so he leaves the bodies of the civilians and makes Bryce Gordon throw up the diamond. Then all the power is centered in the diamond, which creates a huge Eclipso monster. The Eclipso monster says he is fascinated by the idea of having Superboy and Supergirl as his own Adam and Eve.

In Antarctica, Lex continues transmitting his message to the Monitors.


The Monitors consider Lex's offer.


Superman has a plan but he first has to die.

Inside the Monitors' ship, they listen to Lex's proposal to reboot the universe. Superman interrupts his proposal, saying that what he is proposing is madness. Lex is surprised to see that Superman and Lois are still alive, as he was wondering where have they ended up. Lois calls him a monster but Lex insists he's the only one actually trying to save the world by reasoning with the Monitors. The Monitors end the transmission, saying they have much to discuss. Lois is shocked when she learns that the Monitors are actually going to consider Lex's offer. The Monitors then recognize Superman as the person who killed Ray-Lan, so they decide to sentence both of them to death so they won't be able to interfere again in their plans. They intend to kill Superman and Lois by jettisoning them into the Bleed, as no one can survive it, not even the Monitors. Superman says he can get them out of this situation, but Lois will have to trust him and let the Monitors kill him first.

Smallville - Chaos 011 (2014) (Digital-Empire)004

Supergirl, Superboy and Henshaw find a way to stop Eclipso.

Supergirl, Superboy, and Hank Henshaw continue battling Eclipso, who has now been transformed into a big humanoid made by the Eclipso gem, after emerging from his numerous hosts throughout Metropolis. Supergirl and Superboy discover that their respective abilities aren't stopping Eclipso, and they look to Henshaw for suggestions. Henshaw says sound vibrations might just force Eclipso to condense himself even further into a single diamond, and Supergirl grabs two giant church bells and bangs them together. When she sees that it works, she tosses another bell to Superboy, who follows the same strategy. Eclipso reverts to a single diamond that Henshaw and Supergirl catch in mid-air. Then Henshaw says there's only one way to make sure the diamond never falls into human hands again.

Smallville - Chaos 011 (2014) (Digital-Empire)011

Holt and Kord take the upper hand thanks to Skeets.

In Antarctica, the Yellow Lanterns prepare to execute Ted Kord, Michael Holt, and Booster Gold, saying to them that it's not personal. Luckily, Skeets arrives just in time and attacks them with a set of cables that spring from its "body", distracting the Lanterns. Kord and Holt use the opportunity to incapacitate the men and then Skeets takes their rings. Holt and Kord help the beaten Booster Gold to stand up and comment that they might have been paying the wrong guy for the job, in which Booster Gold agrees.

Superman renters the ship while Lois runs to the lifeboats.

In Bleed Space, Superman allows himself to be put into a chamber, which the Monitors flood with Bleed. A tearful Lois watches him being expelled from the Monitors' vessel. However, despite the rigors of Bleed Space, Superman manages to return to the ship and force his way back in. He reenters just as Lois is about to be expelled from the ship as well. Just as a Monitor is ready to expel Lois, an alarm starts ringing. The Monitors leave to deal with the Bleed overload in the ship and Lois finds the chance to race to the lifeboats, but unfortunately she meets a group of Monitors on the way. Upon seeing her, the Monitors comment, they have underestimated their prisoners and Lois, raising her fists, responds, "You bet our ass you did."

Green Lantern helps Henshaw leave Earth.

Hank Henshaw checks in on his wife and stays in the shadows, relaying to Tess that he just wanted to be sure Terri would be okay before he left. He has decided to leave Earth with the Eclipso diamond to protect the people from its influence, and hopes his actions will in some way make up for how things initially turned out between him and Superman. In space, Hank with the help of the Green Lantern, John Stewart, soars into an unknown destination.

Lex detonates all the rings.

The Monitors have arrived.

At the D.E.O. headquarters, the President is briefed on the situation by Director Trevor, Chloe, Oliver and Diana. The arrival of the Monitors on Earth means the extinction of the mankind and while they haven't found a way to stop them yet, they can try to protect themselves for a while thanks to the magic of Zatanna and the mystics, but there is nothing more they can do. Chloe says a Monitor vessel just crashed on Earth in a region near Nepal and there is a chance its Superman, but even if it is, he is too late, as the Crisis is here.
