Smallville: Season 11 #15 is the fifteenth issue of the print edition of the DC Comics comic book series. The issue collects the final three chapters of the Argo story arc, originally released digitally.[1]


Krypton’s past, present and future collide in the skies over New Krypton as the clock ticks down to oblivion. Superman, Supergirl, Booster and the Legion battle the unthinkable! “Argo” comes to its explosive conclusion in part 3 of 3.


Inside the EarthGov holding facility, Minister Niedrigh has captured Booster Gold and tortures him to get more imformation. Kirt is wondering why the Legion would accept a human like him in their ranks. He also wonders why he can't find any imformation about him in their history files, but Booster says that he can't answer to that either. Niedrigh then reveals his scientists have separated Skeets into pieces and have found everything they wanted to know about Booster Gold from Skeets's data. Niedrigh then calls him a liar and a thief and states that Booster Gold needed Skeets from the begimning, and he is nothing without his robotic partner. One of the scientists imforms Niedrigh that they are ready to activate their plan, so Niedrigh leaves the room, but before he does he orders his soldiers to re-purpose the prisoners, leaving Booster Gold promising to Skeets he will find a way out.

Back at New Krypton, some Kryptonian scientists imform Cancellor Pa-Vel that energy is spinning across the worldship. Suddenly the citizens hear a loud noise. Then the Cancellor states that "it has began."

Meanwhile Cosmic Boy has gathered all the members of the Legion so they can stop the upcoming war.

In the Amazon forest, outside Faora's tomb, Clark and Kara are discussing about the war. Clark says that maybe the humans are not ready for a relationship with New Krypton and it might take a long time to do so. Kara defending the Kryptonians says that humans are not able to change and like many of her kind she does not think very highly of them. This conversation leads in a big fight between the two cousins but Clark manages to explain to Kara that the humans are not all like Kirt Niedrigh, giving examples of his adopted parents and Lois. They both manage to calm eachother when suddenly Kara gets a call from New Krypton and at the same time Clark gets a call from the Legion. They both imform them that New Krypton is under attack, Earthgov managed to send Doomsday at the planet via a boom tube, and the kryptonians are launching their assault on Earth. In outer space, Superman and Supergirl meet Brainiac 5 and the rest of the Legion. Brainiac 5 informs the cousins that the Kryptonians have launched an incoming gravity bomb at Earth in response to the attack by Doomsday on New Krypton. Clark seems suprised and Kara asks about Doomsday so Cosmic Boy explains to her that it was a monster that Clark defeated some years ago. Brainiac 5 says that it is possible Earthgov did not authorize the attack on New Krypton, or, if they did, maybe Kirt Niedrigh wasn't actually clear to his superiors about what he found beneath old Metropolis. Kara then asks from Clark to go to New Krypton because he has the experience to defeat the beast, due to his last encounter with Doomsday. Kara calls all the Legion members to follow her to Earth, except from Saturn Girl, who follows Clark on New Krypton.

Meanwhile, in the Earthgov facility, Booster Gold fights with the guards who had captured him and manages to escape along with Skeets, who informs him that situations are developing in both Metropolis and New Krypton. Booster Gold decides to do something about it.

On New Krypton, Superman and Saturn Girl find Doomsday, the hulking brute having almost killed off the Eradicators and caused mass panic in the city. Clark asks Imra to make a link with the minds of all the Kryptonians. Clark then informs them about who he is and Doomsday's origin. He also encourages them to help him defeat the beast. Unfortunately, Clark and the other Kryptonians' efforts are not enough to stop Doomsday so Clark decides to take the monster and throw it to the sun. Cancellor Pa-Vel says to Clark that he isn't powerful enough to escape the sun's gravity, and Clark responds that he is aware of that.

At the same time on Earth, Supergirl and the Legionnaires are ready to stop the bomb that is heading to Metropolis, but it suddenly explodes before they can do anything. Brainiac 5 informs everyone they have lost Metropolis.
