When the Eye sensed Bio-Ship approaching, the group went outside and the Eye shot it down. Saturn Girl saw the attack coming, allowing them to mitigate the damage and create the illusion it was worse. Superman pretended to be the only occupant to remain conscious. He rejected Zod's offer to join him, and was subdued with Kryptonite before the group moved on with him to Planet Circle.
Nightwing emerged from the Fortress to the scene of the devastated Bio-Ship. Miss Martian quickly revealed their ruse. After catching up, they determined to face Zod with the heroes still on their feet. Baby arrived, summoned by her mother's psychic pain, providing them transport.
