"To be honest, I think I was tricked into coming to your time, but now that I'm here I'm trying to help. Saturn Girl's been kidnapped by the Fatal Five, and that's just the beginning. I'll fill you in once we're done here. Hold on. I'm trying to hear their transmissions."
We'll do the explanations off camera once this scene's done. I assume you've been following the plot. :)
"I'll be there as soon as I can." the Man of Steel says, synching his Justice League navigator to the star-cluster they marked for him.
Striding out the compound, he gave a final wave, and pushed off into the sky.
Freed of the atmosphere, he no longer had to worry about the consequences of pushing himself when flying. He willed himself faster, becoming little more than a tiny red blur through the blackness of space.
"It was disguised as a meteor. Our sensors revealed a life form inside it. When we opened the meteor it revealed technological components within it and released a strange gas that revealed an image of Tharok and rendered me helpless. It was very painful. The image of Tharok said it had stolen my soul."
Even I can't make it that far in enough time to make a difference. Better find someone inside. I wonder if any of the systems here still monitor Justice League channels.
Making his way towards the entrance of the building and looking for a way in, Superman spoke into his Justice League communicator.
"Mayday, mayday, this is superman broadcasting from Legion Headquarters. Is anyone there."
Superman sighed. "Dianna, call off J'ohnn. I'm needed in the 31st century. Time travel always gives me a headache. This might take a while, or I might be back in a few seconds. Leave it to Brainiac to figure everything out, but forget to tell me how I'm supposed to get to the 31st century..."
Superman moved forward, looking for a way to open the meteor.
"It's lined with lead! No wonder I couldn't see through it. I'm heasitant to crack it open. If it's dangerous it will be released, if it's not it may have a bad reaction to our air. What do you think? Maybe we should call in J'honn or another telepath to see if it can be communicated with? I'm at a bit of a loss."
"Can you give me a full spectrum analysis of it with the Watchtower's instruments? I'm going to try looking it over myself one more time. I'll stay in the chamber with it."
Basically I'm trying to figure out what's alive about it. Is it alive, or is something trapped inside it? I use x-ray vision on it again.
"Inside the meteor? Whatever it's made out of must block my x-ray vision. I'm a little wary of releasing whatever it is out here, especially since I can't see it. I'm going to bring it up to the Watchtower so we can crack it open inside a containment cell. Be there soon. Superman out."
With an amused look on his face Superman flew back to where he'd tossed the meteor. Picking it up he said "No hard feelings, whoever you are in there.", mostly to himself.
Moments later he was exiting the atmosphere heading towards the Watchtower's airlocks.

"Nothing the Fortresses systems can't fix. You sure about that life sign? I looked around and didn't see anything. Can you give me a bearing?"
Taking a moment to concentrate on his senses, Superman began to scan the fortress again.
