Part 2 of Superman: Arkham, continuing from Superman #160.

As a twisted version of Lois Lane conducts experiments on Superman, Supergirl is plagued by visions showing her what she must do to save the Man of Steel. Meanwhile, Jimmy Olsen is accidentally transformed in to a monster, and Superman continues to try to escape Bizarro's clutches.

Plot (Spoilers):

As Mr. Mxyzptlk searches Metropolis for Superman, a safe magically falls out of the sky and crushes him in order to stop him.

Elsewhere, Supergirl (called Niece Matrix in this world) is a nun at a strange temple. She has a vision of Superman calling out to her for help. The other nuns think something is wrong with her, and call in an exorcist.

That same night, Superman breaks out of Arkham Asylum again. This time Lois Lane finds him first, and offers him help if he'll go with her. Superman accepts, and Lois takes him to a subterranean bunker where she has a team of rebel scientists (science being forbidden in this world) perform experiments on Superman without his consent, using electric shocks to subdue him. Although Lois wants answers as to who he is, she feels pity when she hears his screams, but doesn't know why she should care about him.

After Superman escaped, Bizarro was called to bring him in, but Poison Ivy answered the JLA phone instead. After the phone call, she rants to the other JLA "heroes" that she hates working for him. Bizarro comes in at that moment, so she pretends she was using his language to give him compliments. Bizarro falls for it and rushes off to find Superman, taking his team mate (and love interest) Scorch with him.

At a local university, Professor Hamilton attempts to teach a small group of potential students (including Graveyard Lad, an alternate Jimmy Olsen) about science, which is difficult because it's forbidden. The lesson is interrupted when the Turtle crashes in fighting The Flab (a mocked version of The Flash). The Turtle ends up biting Jimmy, which transforms him in to The Giant Turtle Boy.

Lois' team is alerted that Bizarro is coming for Superman, so she frees him. Superman kisses her before leaving, making Lois wonder why she is drawn to him. Bizarro and Scorch catch up to Superman and a fight breaks out, but Superman finds a hidden power source within him and manages to defeat them. Tired from the fight, he crashes and prepares to be apprehended. However, Supergirl - having escaped the exorcist at the abbey - appears as a winged angel before him.

Jimmy the Turtle Boy then shows up and easily overpowers the exhausted Superman, opening his mouth to eat him. Lois watches this from a remote camera feed, and cries seeing Superman defeated, but still doesn't know she she's drawn to care about him. Her sobs are interrupted when, right on cue, the nightly cries of pain can be heard in the city.
