Superman Reborn: Reign of the Superwomen
When the Man of Steel dies destroying the reborn evil Doomsday, his two beloveds Lois Lane and Lana Lang sacrifice their mortality to become Kryptonian superwomen. As they hope to carry on Superman's legacy, they must inherit the mantle if the Earth is to stop a Cyborg Superman.
1. LOIS LANE ♀ - Age: 37. Species: Terran (later Kryptonian). Homeworld: Earth. Physical Features: Medium-Tall build, Blue eyes, Black hair in a Long Hime cut, Fair skin, and a Low-Medium register voice. Chief reporter of the Metropolis Daily Planet newspaper and fiancée to Clark Kent/Superman/Kal-El. Having figured out Clark was Superman/Kal-El on her own long ago, she and Lana are asked by him to fulfill his dying request - inherit his powers and become the next Kryptonian protectors of Earth. At first needing some time to adjust to being turned into a Kryptonian, Lois and Lana will have to fight the evil Cyborg Superman in order to keep their beloved's memory and legacy alive for a return.
2. LANA LANG ♀ - Age: 35. Species: Terran (later Kryptonian). Homeworld: Earth. Physical Features: Medium-Tall build, Blue eyes, Red hair in a Long wavy cut, Fair skin, and a Medium register voice. Chief anchor of the Metropolis WGBS-TV Galaxy News television station and an old childhood friend to Clark Kent/Superman/Kal-El. Having figured out Clark was Superman/Kal-El on her own long ago, she and Lois are asked by him to fulfill his dying request - inherit his powers and become the next Kryptonian protectors of Earth. Growing up with Clark/Superman/Kal-El in down home Smallville, Kansas, Lana is able to provide a human perspective for Lois when they team up to continue their beloved's mission.
3. KELEX ♂ - Ageless. Type: Kryptonian-based Hologram with Humanoid Proportions. Base: Fortress of Solitude. Tall and Athletic build, White Helmet with Black Eye Holes, White Bodysuit, Black Belt, Black Gloves and Boots, and Low-Medium register voice. Upon hearing of Kal-El's death in killing the evil Doomsday from Lois and Lana, Kelex becomes their guide to all things Kryptonian around the Fortress of Solitude. He introduces them to the spirits of Kal-El's long deceased parents Jor-El and Lara and helps initiate them in the process of turning humans into Kryptonians. He and Kal-El were close like brothers, so any friend or ally of Kal-El's would most certainly be within reason a friend of Kelex's.
4. RICHARD WHITE ♂ - Age: 33. Species: Terran. Homeworld: Earth. Physical Features: Medium-Tall build, Blue eyes, Brown hair in a Short-Medium cut, Fair skin, and a Low-Medium register voice. Reporter and Assistant editor of the Metropolis Daily Planet newspaper and coworker to to Clark Kent/Superman/Kal-El and Lois Lane/Superwoman. Recently widowed, Richard is now a single father with a young son named Jason White, trying to get a fresh start and keep his son in school. He, Jimmy and Clark used to form a Daily Planet bowling team to go out on Friday nights and give Jason some good times, and looked up to Superman and Clark even though he sometimes pined for Lois Lane's affections.
5. JASON WHITE ♂ - Age: 6. Species: Terran. Homeworld: Earth. Physical Features: Age-appropriate build, Blue eyes, Brown hair in a Short-Medium cut, Fair skin, and an age-appropriate register of voice. Jason White is a very shy boy who worships Superman even in death due to the Man of Tomorrow himself bravely trying to save him, his father and mother from a nasty accident. Clark/Superman/Kal-El and Richard comforted each other and Jason after his mother died. In trying to move on, he is in the same first grade with Cat Grant's son. When Lois introduces Cat to his father Richard, Jason and Cat's young son Adam bond over their most cherished memories and adventures of Superman.
6. PERRY WHITE ♂ - Age: 61. Species: Terran. Homeworld: Earth. Physical Features: Medium-Tall build, Blue eyes, Dark Grey hair in a Long-Medium cut, Fair skin, and a Low-Medium register voice. Chief editor of the Metropolis Daily Planet newspaper, he is saddened to lose Clark and Superman in one fell swoop having figured out Clark was Superman and Kal-El on his own. Having thought of Clark, Jimmy, Lois and Cat as though they were like his own children, he cannot bear to lose another and his usual gruff demeanor becomes much sadder, softer and gentler. After Lois becomes one of the two Superwoman, Perry hopes to contact General Lane and the President in order to start reviving Superman.
7. JIMMY OLSEN ♂ - Age: 34. Species: Terran. Homeworld: Earth. Physical Features: Medium-Tall build, Blue eyes, Auburn Brown hair in a Short-Medium cut, Medium Dark skin, and a Low-Medium register voice.

Recently divorced from Joe Morgan, a husband who had driven her to drink, Cat is now a single mother with a young son named Adam Morgan, trying to get a fresh start and stay sober. At one point very much interested in Clark Kent, Cat is barely able to function with the tragic deaths of Clark and Superman. Lois tries introducing her to Perry White's son Richard.
9. LUCY LANE ♀ - Age: 32. Species: Terran. Homeworld: Earth. Physical Features: Medium-Tall build, Blue eyes, Brown hair in a military bun, Fair skin, and a Medium register voice. Her full title is Major Lucy Lane of the Judge Advocate General's Corps, United States Army. At first her father's assistant in the project to develop Cyborg Superman with young CIA agent Hank Henshaw to replace the real Man of Steel, she has doubts about whether they can control it which are soon realized. At first, she and Lois have a strained relationship while she takes comfort in joining the dating scene being torn between Richard White and her old flame Jimmy Olsen. But Cyborg Superman draws her back to Lois.
10. SAM LANE ♂ - Age: 64. Species: Terran. Homeworld: Earth. Physical Features: Tall Athletic build, Blue eyes, Dark Grey hair in a Medium cut, Fair skin, and a Low-Medium register voice. His full title is General Samuel Lane of the United States Army. At first quite resentful of the relationship his daughter Lois has with Superman, he had been working on a project to create a Cyborg Superman to replace him should the Man of Steel ever be killed. Hoping that with governmental control the Cyborg Superman could be better, he soon regrets having been a part of the project when the Kryptonite-fueled Cyborg Superman begins a spree of destruction and aids Lois and Lana in trying to destroy his creation.
11. SUPERMAN ♂ - Age: 36. Species: Kryptonian. Homeworld: Kryptonian. Physical Features: Tall Athletic build, Blue eyes, Black hair in a Medium Regular cut, Fair skin, and a Low-Medium register voice. He is also known by other names like Clark Kent the Big Blue Boy Scout and Kal-El the Last Son of Krypton. Either way, he is the Man of Steel we know and love and is here to protect all of us. At the beginning of the movie, he dies killing the evil Doomsday and his body is sent away into the Yellow Sun of Earth (Terra Sol). His spirit looms over the rest of the film until he is able to recover and return to life in the final act to stop the evil Cyborg Superman run amok. His beloveds are Lois and Lana.
The trappings of the film have some hallmarks of the original Christopher Reeve Superman movies produced by the Salkinds and directed by Richard Donner, Richard Lester, Bryan Singer and Sidney J. Furie - the planet Krypton being a stark crystalline planet with holograms, crystal technology and wardrobe which carries over into the Fortress of Solitude at the North Pole. Smallville is portrayed as being a Middle American town along Interstate 70 in Kansas along the old Santa Fe and Union Pacific lines through the area as seen in old Superboy comics. Metropolis is something of a cross-section between 1930s New York City and present day New York City with elements of Toronto and Vancouver as well.
The story itself takes elements of the Post-Crisis on Infinite Earths story "The Death of Superman" and the DC Rebirth to DC Universe comic book storyline of "Superwoman", as well as elements of the television series Supergirl. It is from the former where we get Superman's final battle with Doomsday and the arrival of Cyborg Superman around the same time. From the middle we get the evolution of Lois Lane and Lana Lang into the two Superwomen. And from the latter comes the inclusion of General Sam Lane and Major Lucy Lane in the U.S. Army with the Department of Extranormal Operations - with the creation of Cyborg Superman spearheaded by Sam Lane and CIA agent Hank Henshaw.
The double girl power of Thelma and Louise
along with the 2017 Wonder Woman
come together in a spiritual continuation of the Christopher Reeve Superman
movies with this four-quadrant five-act action-adventure superhero fantasy chick flick with 20% of the combined overall box office, merchandising, television advertising, home media sales and rentals going to support the National Organization for Women
and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation
if the film is successful. As the title suggests, the two beloveds of the Man of Tomorrow's life - Lois Lane of Metropolis and Lana Lang of Smallville - become the two Superwomen and protectors of Earth in awaiting the rebirth of Superman.
When he is killed in destroying the reborn evil known as Doomsday, Superman is mourned by the two loves in his life at one point or another - two he trusts deeply with his last request. Having proven the goodness and potential in them, Lois and Lana make the journey north to the Fortress of Solitude and request the help of Jor-El, Lara and Kelex in continuing Kal-El's mission. Undergoing a powerful transformation, Lois and Lana become Kryptonians and the two Superwomen needed to protect the Earth. When the U.S. Army's experimental Cyborg Superman threatens to destroy the world, Lois and Lana have to come into their own if they are to save Earth and resurrect their beloved Superman.
Aside from their own human concerns of how to adapt to being transformed from humans into Kryptonians as a result of their vowing to fulfill Superman's last dying request to leave Earth in good hands (Man vs. Self), Lois and Lana will face several challenges in becoming the dynamic duo of Superwomen to protect the Earth and its inhabitants from disaster (Man vs. Nature). Some will come from Lois' strained relationship with her father General Samuel Lane, and sister Major Lucy Lane, in the U.S. Army (Man vs. Society). But ultimately, her and Lana's enemy comes in the form of the Cyborg Superman who frees two criminals from the Phantom Zone to wreak havoc and tarnish Superman's legacy.
1. CYBORG SUPERMAN ♂ - Age: 35. Species: Terran. Homeworld: Earth. Physical Features: Tall Athletic build, Brown eyes, Dark hair in a Short cut, Dark skin, and a Low-Medium register voice. Formerly a CIA agent and NASA astronaut named Hank Henshaw, he chose to become the Cyborg Superman in order to show up and replace the Last Son of Krypton. In truth, his envious, paranoid and egomaniacal mind seeks to conquer the Earth and claim either Lois or Lana as his bride and queen. He is soon accompanied by Quex-Ul and Mala - two Kryptonian villains long sentenced to and now set free by him from the Phantom Zone (flat rhombus-shaped tumbling mirror) before General Zod, Ursa and Non.
2. QUEX-UL ♂ - Age: 45. Species: Krypton. Homeworld: Kryptonian. Physical Features: Tall Athletic build, Red eyes, Dark hair in a Short cut, Tanned skin, and a Low-Medium register voice. Quex-Ul was once a member of the Military Guild and Defense Council under General Zod, but was convicted of killing Rondors, an endangered species once native to the planet Daxam, to use their healing horns for the purpose of profit. Lobotomized into a wrathful brute by the Science Council and sentenced to the Phantom Zone, Quex-Ul slowly begins to recover his intelligence and eloquence upon being freed by the Cyborg Superman. With it comes a sense of chivalry in not wanting to hurt women if he can help it.
3. MALA ♀ - Age: 40. Species: Krypton. Homeworld: Kryptonian. Physical Features: Tall Athletic build, Grey eyes, Silver hair in a ponytail, Fair skin, and a Low-Medium register voice. Mala is a former member of the Kryptonian Science Council. Some years before Krypton and its sun Rao exploded she attempted to take over the planet by removing a great deal of moisture from the atmosphere with her inventions. Sentenced to the Phantom Zone alongside Quex-Ul by Jor-El and Vond-Ah - and freed by Cyborg Superman, she becomes the new Ursa - replete with the bizarre fascination with authoritative-appearing badges and is also driven by Faora/Ursa's "perversions and unreasoning hatred of all mankind."
The Heroes and the Twist
Understandably for a film about Superman, the Last Son of Krypton himself only shows up in the first and fifth/final acts of the movie. With his depicted death in saving the Earth from the evil Doomsday and the effect it has on everyone on Earth who knew him best, the film follows his two beloveds Lois Lane and Lana Lang as they band together to try and carry on Kal-El's mission and legacy. As some work to bring the Man of Steel back to life, a few set about the task of not only killing him but tarnishing and destroying his legacy to leave his work all for naught. With Lois and Lana coming to terms with the near-Kryptonian goodness they had deep down, they need to harness it to honor Superman's legacy.
The Story BreakdownPrologue
1) We open on various animated versions of old Superman comic books as well as the Max Fleischer and even Hanna-Barbera Superman cartoons which evolve into colorized scenes from the old Kirk Alyn Superman movie serials, the George Reeves Adventures of Superman television series, the Dean Cain Lois and Clark series, the Tom Welling Smallville series, the Tyler Hoechlin appearances on Supergirl, and finally moving into the Christopher Reeve followed by Brandon Routh and Henry Cavill Superman movies. All the while, the John Williams theme to Superman plays under a title sequence evocative of the Christopher Reeve and Richard Donner films based on the Man of Steel...Act I
2) After that, we find ourselves at the Daily Planet offices where Clark Kent, his fiancée Lois Lane, their friends Cat Grant and Jimmy Olsen, and their editor Perry White are celebrating Perry's son Richard becoming the associate editor of the paper. The celebrations are broken up by a report coming in across the citywide television news feeds. WGBS-TV's Galaxy News' chief anchor Lana Lang is the first to report that a flying mysterious presence has wreaked havoc across Smallville and is now barreling straight for Metropolis. Lois, Jimmy and Perry nod to Clark that this looks like a job for Superman, and he ducks away to change into his signature blue, red and yellow suit of the Last Son of Krypton.Act II
3) It is a vile and demonic presence from ancient Krypton known as Doomsday. He has come to Metropolis to seek out the only presence on Earth capable of putting up a decent fight and maybe destroying him. As Lois and Lana each leave the confines of the offices or studio to cover the pending fight for Earth, Superman tries to reason with Doomsday at first. Enraged by the memories of how many times he was destroyed and recreated, Doomsday demands the cycle end with the destruction of everything. Resigned to having to kill the poor creature to protect the people, Superman gets to work by using tactics to his advantage. But the raw power Doomsday is able to harness is taking its toll on him.
4) The fight is long and brutal as Superman and Doomsday wear each other out and start beating each other to death. A weary Doomsday tries to kill Jimmy, but he is saved by Superman being forced to throw a shiv of green Kryptonite to cripple the Kryptonian monstrosity. In doing so, he finally is able to beat Doomsday down and hard in the middle of Centennial Park after every bone in his body is broken and being forced to absorb some of the Kryptonite radiation. A horrified Lois and Lana rush to Superman's side as Lois bestows his Clark Kent glasses on him to try and wait for paramedics. It's too late, but Superman begs the two loves of his life to fulfill his last request as he dies in their arms.
5) Metropolis and the rest of the world find out Clark Kent and Superman are one and the same, and that they both died to save the city - all on the same day and night. At the Daily Planet offices and Galaxy News studio, it is clear that Lois and Lana are taking the deaths of Clark and Superman hard, but also stressing over how to keep their promise to honor Kal-El's legacy. What began as a joyous day to celebrate Richard White becoming associate editor of the Planet turns into his hardest assignment to date in memorializing the Man of Steel. Perry tries to comfort Lois by saying she will not be able to keep her promise just standing around there, so Lois calls Lana and tells her to meet her soon.
6) As she gets up to leave, Lois comforts a distraught and inconsolable Cat who was hoping to take her son Adam to meet Superman some time or another. A little while later, Lana arrives at Lois' apartment where she and Jimmy are waiting. While Superman's body is going to be interred at a facility outside Metropolis for the time being, Lois and Lana need to know how to honor his legacy and prove that his four parents' (Krypton - Jor-El and Lara; and Earth - Jonathan Kent and Martha Kent) faith in humanity was and is justified. Jimmy says that they really need to go back to where it all began. Lana has already arranged for them to be on the next train out of Metropolis for Clark and Lana's hometown.
7) Returning to the Kent family farm in Smallville, Kansas; Lois, Lana and Jimmy find five glowing Sunstone crystals in the remains of the baby Kal-El's space pod which rocketed him to Earth from the dying planet Krypton years ago. These five crystals (red, yellow, green, blue and white) form five keys through which any human could access the Fortress of Solitude. Lois worries that they might be Kryptonite, but Lana reassures her that Jor-El must have put them in the rocket before the planet exploded. With the keys in their possession, they head to the North Pole in order to find the Fortress of Solitude - all empty yet warm inside. They put the keys into the control console to access Kelex.Act III
8) Back down at a secret U.S. Army and Department of Extranormal Affairs installation in the Mojave Desert, news of Superman's death has traveled far and wide to reach the ears of Lois' family - USA General Samuel Lane and his daughter Major Lucy Lane, USA JAG Corps. General Lane tries hard to be indifferent and somewhat dismissive of Superman's death - believing he can create something better to show the world they did not need him. At first Lucy volunteers for this project, but someone speaks up and volunteers in her stead - CIA agent Hank Henshaw. In a grueling 112-hour operation, Henshaw is transformed through advanced cybernetics into the Cyborg Superman to replace the real one.
9) Lois and Lana explain to Kelex the circumstances surrounding the death of Kal-El and his last request that they honor his legacy. Upon hearing these words, the spirits of Jor-El and Lara unveil to Lois and Lana two crystal chambers that could fulfill Kal-El's request - to turn any human beings into Kryptonians with red and yellow solar radiation. Jimmy watches nervously but hopefully as Lois and Lana each step into a chamber and are subjected to a near-painless process of their molecular structures and physiologies being altered into those of Kryptonians on Earth. Emerging from the chambers, they don't feel any different until Jimmy tests them with knives. They truly have become Kryptonians.
10) In a twelve Earth-hour process that feels like twelve Earth years, Lois and Lana are educated by the spirits of Jor-El and Lara in celestial knowledge attainable by Kryptonians to complement their salt-of-the-Earth common sense and morality. During this process, two costumes are created to Lois and Lana's measurements. Lois' is the blue suit with yellow belt and red cape, boots and outer underwear - all adorned with a red and yellow S-shield House of El family coat of arms on the chest and cape back. Lana's is a two-tone blue and yellow long sleeve leotard with red gloves, cape, boots and S-pendant cape collar. Both are now adopted into the House of El, readied to continue Superman's legacy.
11) When Henshaw comes to as Cyborg Superman, he has all the strength and powers of the real Superman and even all of his memories - Krypton, Smallville, Metropolis, all of it - barely indistinguishable. His first test will be in destroying some test nuclear ICBMs with his strength, his hurricane breath and heat laser vision. In preparing to destroy the final missile, the very fragile and blackened mind of Henshaw takes over Cyborg Superman and goes rogue - taking the missile up with him far into outer space. He focuses on a tumbling flat rhombus-shaped mirror in which sit two criminals banished from Krypton - not the Phantom Zone of Zod, Ursa and Non. He then shatters it and frees Quex-Ul and Mala.
12) Returning to the Daily Planet and WGBS-TV Galaxy News in Metropolis, Lois and Lana begin the process of getting acquainted with their new abilities and lives as humans-turned-Kryptonians. By now, both the city of Metropolis and the town of Smallville recognize that Clark Kent and Superman - both dearly departed - were one and the same. Lois, Jimmy, Cat, Perry and Richard White all agree to leave Clark's cubicle office empty while others come to decorate it with tributes to the fallen Man of Steel. Lois notices that Cat is starting to fall off the wagon after Clark's death, and asks Perry if Richard could drop Jason off with Jimmy and Adam for the evening while he takes Cat out for some dinner.Act IV
13) Jimmy and Richard ultimately agree and it is agreed for a date between Cat and Richard. Lois sees the two off as she goes off to find Lana and meet up at Clark's apartment, but high winds and a storm are rolling in over the Eastern seaboard. An errant bolt of lightning strikes the Chrysler Building spire which is somehow powerful enough to weaken the support base of the spire as it begins to creak, bend and tumble downwards to the ground. Thinking quickly, Lois ducks into a revolving door to become Superwoman Lois and shoots up to grab the spire before it hits innocent citizens down on the ground. In ecstasy of having done good, she flies it back up and uses heat laser vision to secure it.
14) Amazed and freed by the power of flight given her, Lois goes for a soar over the city to take in her powers as her night has only just begun to take flight. Lana sees that Lois has just saved the Chrysler Building and decides to take action of her own with her powers. Turning into Superwoman Lana, she then finds a pair of alt-Right spies scaling the 6th Avenue Bank of America skyscraper and catches them when they start to fall. She delivers them to the MPD officer on the beat and shows him what the two crooks might confess before flying off. Superwomen Lois and Lana meet up in the skies above Metropolis to discuss their achievements as Lois spots a cat stuck in a tree she flies down to rescue.
15) Superwoman Lana then notices the big storm rolling in and suddenly senses that there is a bomb planted on the United Arab Emirates Ambassador's Boeing 747. She flies up and sees it detonate in the starboard outboard engine as the plane begins to dive towards Metropolis Harbor. Moving to catch the plane by the broken engine strut, Lana helps pull it up and level it out to serve as the new engine until the plane comes in for a safe landing at Metropolis International Airport where the Daily Planet and WGBS-TV Galaxy News staff are joining the reporters and photographers to welcome the Ambassador. It is here that Lois and Lana reveal the truth about who really saved the city and the people.
16) The press and the world are shocked that Lois and Lana have chosen to honor the fallen Superman by becoming Kryptonians, but they declare their intentions to honor the two Superwomen's rights to privacy and to not burden them. Across the country at the DEO, Cyborg Superman has heard of the two Superwomen's deeds and detects the arrival of Quex-Ul and Mala and goes to meet them. He is paranoid and contemptuous toward the late Superman's legacy and seeks to tarnish it any way he can. He finds the two Kryptonian villains and tells them that the late Jor-El sent his son to Earth but Kal-El died protecting the planet. He now wishes to destroy every last legacy of Jor-El on Earth.
17) Fearing for her sister's life, Lucy calls Lois and tells her that Henshaw has turned himself into a Superman impostor and is on the loose ready to wreak havoc. Hearing that Lucy is in talks with Lois, General Lane confesses that he made the Cyborg Superman to be fueled by Kryptonite and is out to destroy Superman's legacy. Ashamed of himself for going through with this, he asks his eldest daughter how he can make things right again. Lois has an idea and relays a call to Lana, Perry, Richard, Jimmy and Cat - Superman's body must be exhumed and taken to the DEO where a mixture of yellow solar radiation filtered through a green Sunstone crystal could regenerate his cells and revive him.Act V
18) Having received the call from Lana and Lois, Metropolis' Mayor Fleming requests President Olivia Marsdin send a US Air Force C-137 plane to ferry Jimmy, Perry and Superman's body to Edwards Air Force Base where DEO personnel will take custody of Superman's body and attempt to bring him back. Marsdin is moved by the request and orders a C-137 take off for Metropolis at once. Cat and Richard are very curious and anxious about why Jimmy and Perry are leaving to go to Superman's burial place in such a hurry. Having managed to swipe the green Sunstone crystal from the Fortress of Solitude, Jimmy hopes that this experimental treatment can bring his closest friend back to life.
19) The three villains prepare to make their start of destroying Superman's legacy by ransacking and laying waste to the Kent family farm in Smallville that night. Cyborg Superman, Quex-Ul and Mala use their heat laser vision to set the Kent farmhouse ablaze as they soon try to use the tractors and combine harvesters of nearby farms as projectiles to destroy the rest of the farm. What do survive are many old photographs of people Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman has had close ties with over the years. Among these are of Clark with his friends from the Daily Planet and Smallville High School. Having a certain lust for the two Superwomen, Cyborg Superman desires to claim at least one of them as his bride.
20) Landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California, Perry and Jimmy are welcomed by General Lane and his daughter Lucy as they take the body of Superman to a yellow solar radiation solarium where Jimmy unveils the green Sunstone crystal to filter the radiation through. In this time, Jimmy and Lucy attempt to confront the other and ultimately reconcile. Lucy confesses that she wanted no part in this bloody horror, but wanted to make her paranoid father proud. Jimmy notes that General Lane's paranoia has doomed the planet and his favorite daughter if Superman cannot come back in time. As these happen, Superman's body regenerates and is taken to a bed where he needs to build energy.
21) As the morning sun breaks over Metropolis, General Lane calls Lois and tells her that he will be flying back that afternoon with Lucy, Jimmy and Perry to see what they can do to help when Cyborg Superman hijacks the television news feeds of the city just as the WGBS-TV Galaxy News morning broadcast is getting underway. He demands either Superwoman Lois or Superwoman Lana surrender to him and become his bride in order that the city be spared his wrath. Enraged that Cyborg Superman is willing to threaten Metropolis out of a petty desire to tarnish Superman's legacy, Lois prepares for the fight of her life even as she tells Lana she is needed to stay in case Lois fails to stop the trio.
22) Superwoman Lois is ready to take on the trio of Quex-Ul, Mala and Cyborg Superman even if the odds are 3 to 1 against her. Just as she is ready to face off with them, Superwoman Lana appears and says that odds of 3 to 2 against them is better. Testing them with causing some havoc and destruction on the Bakerline elevated subway bridges, Cyborg Superman's trio watches in total derision at Superwoman Lois bravely does what she can to save the people of Metropolis and act as a damage sponge. This is all to give an opening for Superwoman Lana to begin a manic aerial chase against the villains. Weaving under Hell's Gate and Highvale Bridges over Metropolis Harbour, Lana closes on the villains.Epilogue
23) Lucy, Perry, Jimmy and General Lane keep watch and beg Superman to return in time to save Lois and Lana. But when Lucy goes to check on him, he sees his bed empty with a blur of blue, red and yellow shooting out towards the city of Metropolis. Seeing children in danger from Mala forces Superwoman Lois in a rage to grab her and fling her into the One Glenmorgan Square Jumbotron shooting out all the LED lights on it. A battle of freeze breath between Superwoman Lana and Quex-Ul turns Fifth Avenue into a giant ice skating rink - just what the people need in a citywide summer heat wave. The fight continues until Cyborg Superman grabs Lois and Lana, flinging them into the subway.
24) Just when Cyborg Superman is ready to take them on again; a blur of blue, red and yellow knocks him right out. Superwomen Lois and Lana cannot believe it - their beloved Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman has come back to them! Now it is a real battle - an evenly matched battle. Cyborg Superman is not about to let anybody take away his chance to dominate the Earth, and he loses all sense of humanity to channel his animalistic wrath onto his "inferior" progenitor. He, Quex-Ul and Mala charge forth as Kal-El, Lois and Lana prepare themselves. When Quex-Ul uses his heat laser vision to ignite the methane-filled sewers, Superwoman Lana inhales then exhales it at faster-than-light speed into the Sun.
25) The battle rages through the skyline of Metropolis as Mala headbutts Superwoman Lois through a LexCorp Tower, Cyborg Superman and real Superman struggle atop the Emperor Building, and Superwoman Lana throws Quex-Ul into Sentinel Freedom's torch. General Lane calls up to Lois and Superman - telling them Superman has weapons of Kryptonite which should bring down the Cyborg Superman once and for all. With the lead-handled swords of green Kryptonite, Superman and the two Superwomen finally kill Cyborg Superman and cripple Quex-Ul and Mala. But the strain causes them to fling the swords out to sea in Metropolis Harbour and fall back to the ground in Metropolis' Centennial Park.
26) Tired but triumphant, Lois and Lana help themselves and Superman to their feet when they hear cheers. The grateful public citizens of Metropolis rallies around to congratulate Lois and Lana the Superwomen as well as to embrace Superman and welcome him home. Jor-El's faith in humanity has proven justified - therefore, he was right to send Kal-El here as a child. Offering penance for his part in creating the Cyborg Superman, Sam Lane brings in a Phantom Zone projector to send Quex-Ul and Mala back to the Phantom Zone to continue serving their terms. Perry White tells Superman he expects him back at work next week Monday at 8 sharp which he embraces with satisfaction as they head home.
27) Clark, Lana and Lois watch Jason head off to school and wonder what awaits them next, after reading about Lex Luthor announcing a doomed run for President of the United States. Confident that the Earth is in safe hands for now, Superman and his two Superwomen - Lois Lane and Lana Lang - fly up above the Earth, smile at us and shoot off to the unknown. Once again; they are faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Being neither birds nor planes; they can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel in their bare hands, and will continue to fight the never-ending battle for "Truth, Justice and the American Way"...
