So If Brainiac Made Zor-El Look Like A Cybernetic Jor-El, And Cyborg Superman Took Supergirl's Body To Make Himself Look Like Zor-El, Does That Make Me Confused?

So back before Villain's Month Cyborg Superman wanted to change his mind and body to what it was before he became cybernetic perfection.  So he used Supergirl's body to reconstitute himself and we found out that he was Zor-El.

Explain It!:

So now that Zor-El has his mind, and body back, he is horrified that he destroyed his daughter to do it.  Now Brainiac is waiting above I'noxia, and demanding that Cyborg Superman turn over Supergirl to him, so he can study the effect of Kryptonite poisoning on a Kryptonian.  

Zor-El has a plan.  He wants to be turned back into Cyborg Superman, there by remaking Supergirl's body.  He tells his I'noxian assistant to tell Cyborg Superman that Brainiac interrupted the surgery, and it's his fault he did not achieve perfection in the knowledge of who he was.  To get his I'noxian assistant to go through with this, he tells him of a plan to shrink down the collective minds of the planet so they can move on away from the terror of Brainiac.  The I'noxians open fire on Brainiac's ship.  But they are no match.

Within the collective Supergirl fights her way out, seeking revenge against Cyborg Superman.  She frees herself and is now the power of pure imagination.  She can now do anything that she can think of and all she can think of is doing terrible terrible things to Cyborg Superman.  But before she can, her consciousness is sucked away.  Zor-El's plan worked the surgery changed him back, and Kara's body was reconstituted.  Cyborg Superman goes after Brainiac, for stealing his past, and Supergirl is told to escape while she can.  Revenge isn't worth the trouble she realizes, and takes off on a rocket bike, as the shrunken collective of I'noxia leaves the planet.  In the end Kara flies her rocket bike through space, until Dun Dun Duuun.  A giant monster monolith appears.  No idea what this is, but weird right?

Bits and Pieces:

This was a suspenseful issue.  It played a lot like a thriller, where time is running out and the good guys have a chance of getting killed.  Keeps you on the edge of your seat most of the issue.  This was a fun story arc, and I'm sad to see it end.  But hopefully the stories continue to entertain in the future.  Only thing that I wish could be different is, being a big fan of Cyborg Superman, I wish he was in the issue more.  Can't wait till we see him again.
