Action Comics, Vol. 1 – Issue 893


Luthor leads a team (including Robot Lois Lane) into the Bwindi National Park in Uganda and is watched by Gorilla Grodd’s apes; Grodd surmises that Luthor is seeking the ‘anomaly’ his base was built around, and therefore knows what the anomaly might be; to get a better understanding of what Luthor knows of the anomaly, Grodd eats the brain of a previously-captured Luthor underling to absorb the knowledge, only to discover Luthor knows nothing; Luthor sends his apes after what is perceived as Luthor’s weakness – Lois Lane, not realizing she is an android; Grodd tries to eat Lois’ brain and realizes he’d been duped, then goes into the jungle and cuts Luthor’s head off; Grodd tries to eat Luthor but the head is that of another android that stuns Grodd and renders him unconcious; it is revealed that Luthor gave his underling bogus information, and put a chemical agent into his body, knowing that Grodd would eat the brain – thus giving Grodd faulty info and a chemical into his body that would affect his judgement; inside Grodd’s base and dressed as apes, Luthor and one of his underlings samples the black energy that Grodd refers to as an anomaly; as Luthor made his escape in a jet, Grodd shoots Luthor out and he falls to the ground; Luthor’s spirit looks down at his seemingly-dead body, then turns and meets Death herself. “Jimmy Olsen’s Big Week: Day One” – Jimmy is dumped by his girlfriend, Chloe Sullivan, because she finds him lazy and boring; Jimmy’s friends take him to a trendy nightclub to cheer him up; Sebastian Mallory, the fastest rising exec in Lexcorp history, arrives at the club with Chloe, who is doing a story on Mallory; when the club informs Jimmy and his friends that Mallory has that V.I.P. section reserved, Mallory and Jimmy have a verbal game of trying to one-up each other, until Jimmy states that he can stop an alien invasion.
