The final battle lines between New Krypton and Earth are being drawn, and writers James Robinson and Sterling Gates team with artist Pete Woods for an epic throwdown that leads directly to WAR OF THE SUPERMEN #0 on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY.

Straight from the pages of TITANS, Starfire joins our merry band just in time for super-genius Vril Dox to pick up the pieces from last issue's climactic battle with Starro the Conqueror.
