The addition of over 100,000 people with the powers of Superman to Earth’s population has got a few people a little nervous — not the least of which are the leaders of the new inhabitants.

As the residents of the former bottle city of Kandor begin to assimilate to life on our planet after being rescued by the Man of Steel, they face a tough decision: Do they trust these humans, some of which have threatened and done serious harm to Superman in the past or should they take matters into their own hands to protect their newfound freedom?

When the decision is made to take down any villain, super or otherwise, who has ever been a thorn in Superman’s side — no matter the cost — all hell breaks loose. Soon it’s hero versus hero and family against family as the humans and Kryptonians ready for a war that no one can win.

The second collection of this standout crossover series by red-hot writers Geoff Johns and James Robinson is an emotional and action-packed roller coaster ride with more guest stars than you can cram into the Hall of Justice.

Oh, and if that’s not enough: Enter Superwoman.
