Let's all take a moment to welcome t-shirt and jeans Superman back to Action Comics. He's just as young and reckless as you remember, only this time, Zero Year is going down, and after seeing a report on the storm headed Gotham's way, Clark recklessly decides he's going to literally stop the storm.
While Clark hitches a ride to Gotham via hanging onto a military cargo plane, his old friend Lana is working as an electrician on board of a stalled freighter off the coast of Gotham, trying to get it up and running, as the coast guard is evacuating it. As the captain calls for her to take her chance and get off the ship, she brushes it off, completely dedicated to getting the ship back up and running.
Meanwhile, Clark enters the ocean and attempts to create a vortex so big that it will counter the storm's rotation and break its back in a way. While it seemingly starts to work, the forces of nature prove too much for a young Superman, as he gives up in frustration.
While not able to stop the storm, Clark soon sees an abandoned tanker headed straight towards the ship Lana is on (he doesn't know she's there), as does the crew on the stalled ship. While Clark heads into action, the pressure is put on Lana to get the ship up and running before any possible collision. The two feverishly work agains the clock, both with similar thoughts going through their heads, and ultimately, a collision is avoided once Clark breaks the ship, causing it to explode.
The explosion blasts Clark back to the beach, where he is met by some people who are weathering out the storm in a makeshift shelter. Clark tries to help them move a boat into their shelter, but he's so wiped, he can't even move it, which leads the others to help him, saying they'll do it together.
