Superman – Multiplicity | Comics

Seeing plants around Smith farm area dying as nearby ponds and streams are all being drained unnaturally, Superman flies to a nearby river and .quickly determines after some observation that this is no drought. He came across a being from below ground known as Swamp Thing, who makes his presence known and states after seeing Superman at the first glance that the latter doesn't belong here, on this reality. After their initial introduction, Clark calls him by the name Dr. Alec Holland, who also points out that the former is not a Man of Steel of this world.

Because of his unique power of elemental control, Dr. Holland sensed an anomaly within him and found Clark in Hamilton County. Holland believes that a disturbance in "The Green" is what brought him here and as Superman assures he means no harm. When he placed his hand on Swamp Thing, it released Kryptonian blue energy, overwhelming Holland. As a result of this misunderstanding, they get into a fight where Swamp Thing sees his memories of New Earth and Mister Oz visiting him earlier. Then he advises Clark not to consider himself as an outsider in this world and peacefully parts away.

The other night, when Clark was driving his home to Hamilton County, he stumbles onto a badly beaten Superman of Earth-30 (Red Son), who was being chased by the Gatherers. Even though Clark was not on their list, together they fought back these "Gatherers", who came following the Soviet Superman here. As he retreated from their clutches, he heard Kenan Kong is next in Gatherer's target list. At that moment, Justice League Incarnate arrives to the scene from future and Superman of Earth-23 meets Superman of New Earth.

The JLI briefly explains what's happening here before they all go and try to help Kenan Kong in Henan Province but failed to save him. In the House of Heroes, Justice League Incarnate was explaining the entire situation to Superman, while the Gatherers were busy abducting Supermen from different worlds for their master, Prophecy. So, they go to every other worlds to talk to each Superman counterpart and assemble them all on Ultima Thule; a plane outside space and time. They collectively decide to lure their enemy out using their combined power and then face him together.

However, Superman teleports others away to save them at the final moment and faces the being alone in space-time continuum. Even though Prophecy detects Superman as an anomaly, he is immediately drained off his power and rendered weak. Still, he assures the other powerless captive brethren that he has one trick left. The monstrous entity believes that a great catastrophe is on the horizon and if he can collect the power of all the Superman of the Multiverse, he might have a fighting chance against that.
