Basically everybody has to start paying for their stupid plans, heroes and villains alike.
The Heat is On
So the Sagitauri under Jayna are now all pawns of Brainiac. I still feel like it’s a lost opportunity for who the Voice of Rao could have been, but oh well. Jayna of course escapes using her main character powers. As Poppa Vex learns, there is only the Agent of Brainiac now. Looks like they’re all heretics now. Blondie Vex gets a target on her head once Poppa Vex instantly sells out to Brainiac to save his own neck.
Coup, Coup, Coup
Superman’s cape is slowly drifting apart. Adam calls on Holo-El to help him fix his zeta beam projector. That’s not gonna end well. And Seg is now torn between both of his girlfriends as well. It’s not really possible to get away from the Dawson’s Creekiness of it all, is it?
The search is on for Jayna. Dev doesn’t like playing second fiddle. Seg and Blondie Vex again prove why villain guards are useless, they can’t even beat a couple of kids.
Surprise, surprise, Dev is controlled by Brainiac and has super powers. They find Jayna and he tries to convert both her and Lyta. He fails, so Lyta blows his arm off. Everybody’s wrapping their heads around the fact that Brainiac’s already here, and they’re too late at every turn.
They have broken down Jayna’s character to grieving mother, but they at least try to redeem her when she meets her grandson, General Zod. it’s going to be interesting watching three generations of Zods try to out-posture each other.
Adam talks some more about his perpetual loser status, and hoping that the Justice League would notice him back on Earth. And for some reason, the hologram gives him a Flash-esque “believe in yourself” pep talk. That was ridiculous coming from a hologram.
The Voice of Brainiac is two seconds from getting his brains blown out by Seg and the Rogues, when he steps into the flame and presents himself as a messiah. Oh my goodness even Creepy Newt-El buys it. It was a master stroke.
