About this deal

Around this time, Superman offered Superboy, his partial clone, the genuine Kryptonian name of a distant relative of his, "Kon-El," believing the two were like family. Superboy gratefully accepted. [112] Her father secures a personal tutor for Mastema to learn magic, one who respects her teenage rebellion and offers understanding. Mastema slaughters her within seconds. Mass "Oh, Crap!": Everyone gets terrified in Issue #24 when the death of yet another mage weakens the barriers permitting invaders from Terrenos to arrive on Earth, the first one showing up is Kallista.

At this time, Perry White returned to the Daily Planet, his cancer now in remission, and Clark returned to his position as a reporter. [102] Mages can take forms appropriate for combat that can be twisted in horrific manners if they can control their power, specially in their magical awakening. After successfully pacifying a bear that he and his brother disturbed upon entering into his space and baiting into thinking they are friendly, Mikey kills it by stabbing it in the head. Brennan is disgusted that his brother would do such thing after just proving they were no threat to the bear, but Mikey says that he did that just to protect him. Though he has a justification, it serves as a reminder to Brennan that Mikey isn't as heroic as he seems. Winged Humanoid: The Gideon are a race of human-like beings from Terrenos that oppose Lore's rule. Mikey's protector (and love interest) Rya is one of them.Villain Protagonist: Mikey since he is working with God-King Lore to merge Earth with Terrenos, though most characters aren't aware of it initially. Clark talked to Lana again about stopping her divorce, but she had made up her mind. When Superman finally captured Ruin, he unmasked the villain to discover it was none other than - Pete Ross! Pete was taken to prison and beat up by other prisoners. Given that the prophecy isn't actually about Mikey, the prophecy likely doesn't refer to her at all, but a different princess who may be Mastema's mother. Secret Identity is unusually grounded for a Superman story, as Clark struggles more with keeping his identity safe from prying journalists and military operatives than battling supervillains. But that low-key approach allows Busiek and Immonen to hone in on the character’s humanity and his desire to do good with the gifts he’s been given. After some time to think, Superman informed Arion of his choice to continue being a Superman. However, Arion cast a mind-control spell on Superman, planning to use him as a weapon against other alien heroes. But Superman managed to resist the spell and went after Arion, who began unleashing a massive disaster on the world. Phantom Stranger told Superman that Arion had unleashed the very disaster he was trying to prevent. [164] Superman found Arion's lair in the Atlantic Ocean, and after a lengthy fight, defeated Arion and handed him to the authorities. [165] Last Son

During his first costumed adventures in Metropolis, he simultaneously pursued his education at Metropolis University and put himself through school by working at Balducci's restaurant for two years, where he had a brief affair with an older woman named Ruby Carson [11] He later began his new career as a reporter for the Daily Planet working for chief-editor Perry White, alongside Lois and cub reporter Jimmy Olsen. There, Clark would score the illustrious first documented interview with Superman, which Lois was forever be envious of. [12] [13] Superman reconnected with his friends on Luthor's spaceship after Lex's defeat and learned that, before he disappeared, Luthor had created multiple Doomsdays, all contained aboard his ship. [214] Upon this discorvery, the Superman family encountered the Doomslayer, a sentient Doomsday, who murdered the Eradicator when the artifact tried to subdue him. [215] Mecha-Mooks: Mastema's army of golems was added to give Mikey an army to destroy; individually even Aaron can take them down.The Unchosen One: Since the prophecy regarding Lore is revealed to be bogus and Mikey was never the chosen one as believed by the resistance, his loved ones are now encouraging him to continue fighting against Lore because nobody else will. He Who Fights Monsters: A recurring theme is that heroes who rise up to challenge Lore end up falling short either by becoming radicals themselves at best, or joining him out of despair at worse. This seems to have been the case with Lore himself after he defeated the great threat of his time. Co-Dragons: Lore has Mikey (his direct agent on Earth hunting after the Five Mages to ensure his invasion on his homeworld) and Kallista (who enforces his will in Terrenos and fights against the resistance). With Mikey now freed from his influence, Kallista can be considered the sole Dragon.

X-Ray Vision: The ability to see through anything except lead. Since it is passive, this ability would not generate harmful radiation in the same manner as a focused projection of hard X-rays. He saw that the earth had been transformed into a single-cell organism. [331] He also determined when a force field completely covered a spherical area. [332] La Résistance: A very loose one located in Terrenos against Lore's rule persists even after the Five's departure. They are very battered and nowhere near as close to ousting Lore as the mages were. Self-Sustenance: He does not need to eat or sleep so long he has enough yellow solar energy (but is still capable of doing so) and doesn't require oxygen to breathe enabling him to travel in space and underwater unprotected. [315]While passing through Chicago, Clark was asked to leave because his mission seemed like a threat to the children. Despite this, Superman rescued a young boy from an abusive father and tried to reinforce that powers are not required to be a hero. [206] His morals were challenged again in Iowa, when Lois Lane tried to shut down a environmentally unsafe factory that the local community depended upon. Forced to choose a side, Superman asked his wife not to publish the article because it would hurt too many people. [207] Superman's grip on reality began to break down, causing his behavior to become more erratic. All of this was because the real culprit was Brainiac, who had recovered from his being formerly lobotomized and returned to Earth. [78] When Superman finally learned the truth, he confronted Brainiac in the streets of Metropolis before the villain fled. [79] In the meantime, Superman's old foes formed a Superman Revenge Squad and, when he returned, went after him but still did not probe a threat to Big Blue. [99] When Superman believed that Lex Luthor had been attempting to create synthetic Kryptonite, the Man of Steel sliced LexCorp Tower in half, casting the top half into outer space. The SCU tried to arrest him, but Superman refused to allow them to. The JLA intervened and agreed that Superman crossed a line. [113] The JLA were unable to defeat his army of Superman robots to apprehend him and, during the battle, the truth of Superman's recent behavior were made clear — he has been manipulated the villain Dominus! [114] Superhuman Stamina: He has the ability to maintain continuous physical actions for an undefined period. Clark has unlimited stamina if he is consistently exposed to Earth sunlight. [295]
