Superman had a terrifying vision of Lex Luthor initiating aggression again the nation of Qurac, as a parallel to our own President Bush’s invasion of Iraq. The whole thing was generated in Superman’s mind by the Martian Manhunter’s “Transconsciousness Articulator” device, something like a telepathic virtual reality generator. The Atom had a two panel cameo, where Superman spazzed out and wrecked part of the machine. Presumably, the Atom and/or Batman were working the device, or at least watching over Kal-El. They really needed a telepath though, which is why things went awry. Wonder Woman was also present, and you can get a more detailed account of her involvement at the Diana Prince Blog.
