With his wife Lois Lane and son Jon Kent, Superman successfully foiled Mister Mxyzptlk's plan but as a result, it altered history. While working at his desk at the Daily Planet, Clark realizes that something is missing from their lives and he heads to his Fortress of Solitude to seek answers. There, he asks Kelex to show him archive footages to find out what's missing from the life of him and his family.

Elsewhere, a shadowy voice approaches Metallo in his disassembled state in a holographic form and offers him revenge in return for his assistance. Then the hologram comes to the villain with psychic abilities and a knack for making art by murdering people known as Blanque with the same proposition. The Eradicator too is rescued and restored from the surface of moon (Son of Superman) before he teleports Blanque and Metallo to one of Batman's secret base to form Superman Revenge Squad.

Their host reveals himself to be former Team 7 member Hank Henshaw and he sends The Eradicator to free Mongul from the Black Mercy flower Superman trapped him into (Better Together). Assisted by Blanque, they head to Superman's Himalayan Refuge to retrieve a part of the Oblivion Stone for Henshaw. As Mongul defies his leadership and attempts to attack him, Henshaw finally transforms into Cyborg Superman using the stone and forces him into submission before revealing his intent to free General Zod next.

With Superman in pursuit, Cyborg Superman and Eradicator go to Belle Reve for rescuing General Zod through "The Black Vault" (Earthlings on Fire). Cyborg leads the Superman Revenge Squad at the doorstep of Superman's Fortress but he is still blinded by the effects of The Black Vault. Knowing that he cannot win against them all and will probably going to die, the Man of Steel took a last stand against his enemies to buy Lois and Jon a chance to escape.

Following the events of "Superman Reborn", not only the status-quo of Superman titles have changed but the entire DC Universe is changed as well. This arc took a glance at the Pre-Flashpoint events of Birthright, Secret Origin and The Men of Tomorrow from The New 52 era. Not only the plot assembles a large array of Superman enemies but the cavalry of Lex Luthor, Steel, Supergirl, Kong Kenan/Super-Man and Superwoman were also featured too. Plus, a Watchmen crossover with the world of post-DC Rebirth, Doomsday Clock is just waiting on the horizon.
