He uses his shrinking technology to save a city about to be destroyed, and finds the experience rewarding.  But this is the re-programmed Brainiac, made into a good person by Superman.  Superman, by the way, isn’t doing much of anything, even though a volcano has burst through the streets of Metropolis.  An effect of the blast from the ship is that he cannot see the ship now, or any of its effects.

Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen make him realize the situation, and he carries Jimmy along with him, to point out the disasters he needs to fight.

Superman realizes they need more information about the ship than they have, and that the only way to learn more would be to re-program Brainiac to his original state, in which he created the Death Star type world.

The story concludes in the next issue.
