As Kal-El of Prime Earth died, Wonder Woman also discovered that a counterpart from an alternate reality has taken the mantle of his love. However, the world still remains dubious with the existence of this new Clark Kent who is not Superman. Even Jimmy Olsen and Perry White are having a hard time believing what Clark is claiming. So, Lex Luthor, now president and publisher of Daily Planet calls for a press conference to clear out everything in front of the public.

As the people present in the conference didn't buy that Clark and Superman being two different person and a whack job ended up shooting at the former, they had to call it quits. Clark even undergoes a lie-detector test and passes. He decides to investigate Geneticron, who were responsible for the release of Doomsday and he is rescued by Superman when he is thrown out of the roof, who takes Clark to his Fortress of Solitude to determine who Clark really is.

Meanwhile, Lois Lane of Pre-Flashpoint era decides to show up in Daily Planet and everyone is surprised to see her. Superwoman decides to pay a visit to her as she is yet not convinced of this new Lois. As they sorted out these mysteries around them, an enemy from the future secretly watches over them.
