Superman Reborn | Comics

Following the entire world witnessing "The Final Days of Superman" while a Superman from another world was also present at the scene, a mysterious Clark Kent also showed up later, who is not a Man of Steel though. During the Doomsday incident at Metropolis, this new "Clark" met Superman and Lex Luthor as they were already handling the situation, both of them very surprised to see him. He then starts having feelings for Lois Lane and she finds every similarity among him and her husband quite uncanny and disturbing as well.

Alarmed by a sudden breach at his Fortress of Solitude, Superman rushes there only to find out that Superwoman is in critical health condition and brought in by his friend Steel. As he tends to see Lana, his nemesis Blanque taunts him by calling his civilian name. Superman figures out a way to save the life of Superwoman by putting her into a Kryptonian battle armor from Fortress. At the same time, a team of explorers led by Hank Henshaw were trying to locate Superman's Fortress of Solitude but things go wrong for them.

Somewhere else, a secret prison in an undisclosed location of Mister Oz, Tim Drake teases him stating that one of his prisoners has gotten away already. As he goes to investigate towards a tower, he finds numerous drawings and writings for the Man of Steel inside the walls of the tower. Though this prison still holds monstrous entities like Doomsday and Prophecy, the escaped prisoner seems to have upset Oz quite a great deal. Which means, either this person may cause great peril for Kal-El or may reveal something important to him, that he is not supposed to know right now.

Meanwhile, realizing about his feelings towards Lois, the mysterious Clark eventually proposes her, only to be declined politely. He follows Lois back to her home after she rejected his proposal of marriage, Clark reaches at Smith Farm, Hamilton County to discover that she already have a family and it really cracked him up badly. Lois was celebrating her marriage anniversary with her husband and son, when finally coming to the realization of his true identity after long.

The other Clark shows up at their front door and leaves a photo album titled "The Kents" before disappearing to thin air just like a ghost. They suddenly saw fire in their house and then everything around them starts getting erased, including their son Jon. Superman and Lois heads straight to Metropolis seeking for answers and Clark's doppelganger was not present there at his own apartment. Out of the blue, he showed up there and managed to stop an enraged Superman from attacking him.

According to him, he was locked up in that cell because Man of Steel never cared for him and then he even solved Clark's secret identity problem. When Kal-El fails to deduce who this mysterious fellow really is, he starts dropping hints by frequently changing into Bizarro, Brainiac, Cyborg Superman, Doomsday, Lex Luthor, Mongul and Parasite one by one, asking to say his name. Superman eventually figured out it was his old enemy Mister Mxyzptlk and the imp erased Jon from existence for big-blue forgetting him.
