Mon El takes out Shrapnel, one of the many super villains threatening Metropolis since they feel they’ll have an easy time of it with Superman away, with the help of the Science Police and Guardian. There’s more than just Mon El on the case though. The Guardian, Field Commander of Metropolis’ elite super SWAT-like team, The Science Police, Black Lightning and John Henry Irons, aka Steel are also active on the streets of Metropolis.

Meanwhile, Jimmy Olsen is hard at work trying to identify a mysterious laser beam that knocked both Supergirl and Krypto out of the sky back during the "Atlas" arc.
