Once the satellite situation is handled, Val-Zod tries to explain that he is not from the Jon Kent universe; however, Jon cuts him off saying he already knew it just by looking at it. “There are little things that you learn to look for at the molecular level,” he said. Jon also adds that he has “been to another universe” and references when the evil Ultraman kept him trapped in a volcano for years.

Unfortunately for Jon, Val-Zod is not only in the neighborhood for a brief visit but needs Superman’s help in defeating Ultraman, who has begun killing different versions of the Last Son of Krypton existing in the multiverse with devices specially designed to weaken them. Jon was initially hesitant to join due to his history with Ultraman; however, since no one else stands a chance against the villain but him and Val-Zod, he reluctantly takes it.
