Synopsis
Stargirl gets Superman to open up about the events that preceded his arrival. When she mentions that his words echo The Book of Revelation, Superman seeks out this world's Norman McCay. But before he gets to him, he is distracted by an explosion at the Daily Planet offices which is eerily familiar to him. He then visits McCay, but receives little comfort. Later, Superman is met by Lois Lane. When he mentions that his wife's last advice to him were that he not to lose Clark, Lois asks when he was last Clark. He replies that he has not been Clark since that day and never will be again.
