Synopsis: As the world mourns the death of the Man of Steel, new heroes emerge, each claiming to be the true Superman reborn. But when a deadly threat uses Superman's absence to target Earth, their powers are put to the ultimate test.
Genre: Animation

It's been six months

since Doomsday,

and the world is still shaken

by the death of

Kal-El of Krypton.

Better known to us as Superman.

My guest is commentator,

G. Gordon Godfrey.

Sir, you've written an editorial

in which you call on us

to reject so-called "Supers,"

and effectively

become our own heroes.

We have an infestation, Cat.

It's out of control.

You're writing about

the mysterious new Superman.

Oh, Eric!

Look, Cat, the reality is,

these are "Supermen"

we know nothing about.

But they're actually

making a difference.

Did they make a difference to

the Excalibur Shuttle crew?

We already have,


- The police...

- The Justice League, the Titans.

But, Cat, the point of

my editorial

is to say that

it's time for human beings

to stop relying on

Leagues and Titans,

and start saving ourselves.

So, we should each

be our own Superman?

I mean, isn't that exactly what

these guys are doing?

Get a message to Mannheim.

Tell him, Snakey Doyle's

got the business in-hand.

We'll see him in five to ten.

Stop fooling yourself, Cat.

The "Man of Steel" is dead.

We saw the body.

Before it vanished.

Look, we have no idea if

a Kryptonian can even die.

I mean, where's the body?

Who cares?

The real questions

here are far more pressing.

Who are these new guys?

Why are they here?

What is their place

in a world without a Superman?

I hate it!

Buck up, Troupe.

Writing's fine,

just a crap headline.

We'll fix it later.

Now, I want angles!


Law enforcement angle.

Crime stats. "Have the

Supermen made us safer?"

I love it. Change "Law

enforcement" to "Millennials"

and "Crime stats"

to "Re-tweets."

Are the Supermen trending?


I was gonna go cover the

LexCorp charity gala tonight.


You're covering the big launch

of the Justice League's


Have the new

Supermen been invited?


Uh, I... I don't really

think there's a sports angle here.

I love it! Kent?

I meant the Kent angle.

"Missing persons following

the Doomsday attack."

"The search for survivors."

I think Lois

is covering it, Chief.

Don't call me "Chief."

Lane, what have you got?

Great Caesar's ghost!

Where the hell's Lois Lane?

It's okay, Lois.

We've got you.

Jimmy packed up his desk.

He has a box, but I haven't

been to the Planet since...

When I'm there, it just

reminds me that he isn't.

I should've called.

I wanted to.

I'm just glad

he finally fessed up.

It was such a big secret

to keep from you.

I loved him too.

- I tried to tell him, but...

- Oh, honey...

He knew.

I just...

I can't believe he's gone.

He might not be if you

watch that damn Grant woman.


Clark's body disappears,

and suddenly these new Supermen

show up out of the blue.

What if one of them

really is Clark reborn?

Not possible.

I would know.

Of course. I just mean...

There are a lot of

unanswered questions.

When Superman first

showed up in Metropolis,

nobody knew what to make of him,

because nobody knew

what to ask him.

I knew what to ask him.

I know what to ask these guys!

I'm sorry, I gotta go.

I'm glad you called.

I'm glad you came.

I was hoping you could help me.

- I'm following...

- I never thought of us as rivals, you know.

Are we?

Kal-El and I had a special bond,

but you were

the love of Clark Kent's life.

Anyway, I'm relieved he

finally told you everything.

Apparently he didn't.

I'm sorry. For an Amazon,

I have surprisingly

few girl friends here.
