And while we have seen the impact of that across a number of Superman titles…


…in the main Superman comic, we've still been living in the build up to that moment, as Lois learned the truth for the first time.


Well today we catch up. We made a guess as to how it would go. And we were bang on the money. A blackmailed Superman, being forced to perform for nefarious means.


A Lois Lane who won't allow such a situation to occur.


And willing to risk herself – and others – for the man she…


…okay, well let's leave that on hold for now.


Because, yeah, that's not going to happen for some time… as we now know. Maybe not until we get to here…


via here…?
