Darkseid has just pummeled Kara to a pulp, and is about to leave Smallville via a portal. Superman intercedes, exclaiming, "You didn't think you could just walk away, did you?!" Darkseid then proceeds to beat Superman to within an inch of his life, and the heroes end up deciding to use their remaining strength to get him into the portal.
What in the HELL was the point of that? Masochism at its finest I guess. Anybody got anything better than that?
