One-Shot issue featuring three shorts, additional history, and profiles to add to the Superman/Batman canon

Recruits

A terrorist named Abdullah Harish locks himself inside the penthouse suite of a hotel and begins making outrageous demands. President Luthor sends Major Force to handle the situation, while the Pentagon instructs Captain Atom to do the same. Superman likewise arrives at the scene. Captain Atom offers Superman a position to work alongside him for the government, but Superman refuses to work for President Luthor.

When Major Force arrives, Captain Atom and he get into a fight. Atom knows that Major Force will likely kill Harish and he would prefer to take him in alive.

Batman arrives on the scene and sneaks into the hotel to handle the terrorist while the other three battle one another. He manages to capture Harish, and Superman extracts both of them from the building before it explodes. Batman tells Captain Atom that Luthor sent both agents to the scene knowing that Force and Atom would fight one another. The President was hoping that Harish would be killed in the midst of a "super-hero fight" giving the President plausible deniability for the terrorist's death.

Young Luthor in Smallville

An eighteen-year-old Lex Luthor goes to the Metropolis Talent Agency and hires an actor to pose as his father. This false paternal figure accompanies Lex to Smallville Kansas and enrolls him at Smallville High School. He meets fellow student Clark Kent and soon earns the ire of Principal Goodwin. Upon hearing Lana Lang complaining about the temperature of the classroom, Lex takes it upon himself to fix the school furnace.

When Clark Met Bruce: A Tale from the Days of Smallville

Many years ago, Alfred Pennyworth drives young Bruce Wayne across country. Their car breaks down in Smallville Kansas and Alfred makes repairs. In a nearby field, Clark Kent and Pete Ross play baseball. They notice the sad looking Wayne child in the window of the car, just as it drives away. Clark wonders if perhaps they should have asked him to play ball with them.
