Superman: Arkham

Part 3 of Superman: Arkham, continuing from The Adventures of Superman #582.

John Henry Irons is locked away for knowing scientific formulas in a world where science is forbidden. Meeting Superman, the two vow to fix this world, turning Irons in to the hero Steel, but the evil JLA member Bounty is on their trail.

Plot (Spoilers):

After passing through The Giant Turtle Boy's digestive tract, Superman is convicted of thinking rationally and logically and is sent to a flying saucer called the S.S. Arkham.

Imprisoned, Superman meets Hank Aaron Irons (an alternate John Henry Irons), and they bond over knowing scientific formulas, even though it's forbidden. Together, they escape.

Irons mentions a vague memory of wearing a suit, and Superman takes him to a statue of Steel at a pier. Bounty shows up looking for Irons, and Superman fends him off while Irons gets his Steel suit on. Bizarro arrives and captures an exhausted Superman, but Irons, now Steel, knocks Bizarro in to a series of buildings.

Meanwhile Mr. Mxyzptlk is wandering Metropolis, and is about to be crushed by another magical train but is saved when a building collapses on it. Delighted, he transports himself to Superman and Steel's location and tells them they've broken the daily pattern so he's started to regain some memory. He tells them they must go to JLA headquarters on the moon, but just then an anvil appears and flattens him.

Lois shows up and takes Superman and Steel to the S.S Arkham so they can use it to get to the moon. She's helping them so the world can change, and she can still be on top.

The nightly scream of torment from an unknown person is heard on her radio.
