Superman, Supergirl and Martian Manhunter try to hold the pod.

Chloe then hears Ollie's 3D printer activate and Tess steps out in her new physical form.

All the heroes race to the Watchtower but are too late to stop the destruction as the pod crashes into the side and it begins to crumble to dust. A tearful Clark pours on the speed as Ollie cries out. Superman is shocked to see a red tornado explode from the rubble landing Chloe safely on the ground. John and Aya protect everyone with an emerald bubble shield as Superman approaches with a devastated Ollie... but as the dust clears Chloe is unharmed and joined by Tess (In her new Red Tornado form). Lois and Ollie hug Chloe while Tess takes Superman aside to explain how she manufactured her new android body also telling Superman about how the Monitors had sent the pod to deliberately sever the virus they had and the link to their network. Superman asks Tess what was in the pod just as something smashes its way out of the rubble. Clark utters some rousing words as the heroes swear to fight together now and forever against this threat.

Otis gets killed by saving Lex's life.

Lex is confronted by the Monitors and Manhunters, for the first time ever with no backup plan and no way out. Before Lex is killed a truck slams into his attackers crushing them, and out climbs Otis from the wreckage. Lex is for once pleased and grateful to have Otis as a friend only then to see the hapless friend incinerated by a laser of a barely functioning Manhunter. In a rage Lex crushes its skull dropping to his knees in sadness at his loss.

Meanwhile, Batman is proving a weak link in the fight with the Monitor warriors. Clark tells him to fall back, get Lois and Chloe to safety and try to re-establish the link to the Monitors' ship. Batman is reluctant and asks about Arrow, but Ollie points out he would be a better protector for Chloe and Lois as he has a better skill set for it. Batman then melts a hole in the sidewalk into a basement safely out of the way of the battle, and with Nightwing at his side they fire their Bat Grapples to get to the rooftops.

Smallville - Continuity 008 (2014) (Digital-Empire)017

With might of astounding levels Clark soars upwards then smashes the warrior to a wheezing wreck. Clark tells him to pass a message on to his masters than no more blood will be shed. The Omega Monitor launches a series of cables that capture Superman. The warrior points out that if Superman is broken then the will of his 'Justice League' will too. Instead of passing the message Superman instructed the Omega Monitor orders the orbiting ship to triangulate his position and fire with all their might. Clark cries out refusing to be rebooted but the Omega Monitor laughs wheezily that he no longer has a choice.
