Rucka is joined by Diego Olmos on Action 878 (Aug. 09), as Nightwing and Flamebird go after two more Kryptonian sleeper agents.
Nightwing returns, as Flamebird gets back into gear. This issue has Thara and Lois really meet and talk for the first time, as she learns about the woman who loves her “son.” Chris tells Lois about the military attack. Lois’s suspicions are aroused.

The two couples are pretty evenly matched. But the game changes as Codename: Assassin, recently brought into the Superman books, shows up with an army of magical creatures.
The story continues in the next issue.
