Previously on Smallville...

We didn't find him. He found us.

I could have swore I hit you.

So, what are you, man or superman?

I haven't figured it out yet.

You are the last son of Krypton.

What are you trying to tell me, dad?

That I'm from another planet?

I just don't know how I'm supposed to be the man he wanted me to be without him here.

Who are you?

Lois Lane.

I've seen the way you two look at each other.

Lois and Clark would be great together.

You're looking at the newest recruit to The Daily Planet.

To me, you're more than just a hero.

You're a superhero.

I am the villain of this story.

Lionel's here.

I'm not the Lionel you knew.

Lex is d*ad.

That is a lie.

You're all engineered from Lex's DNA.

When I sent the Kandorians away, I opened a door for something else to come to Earth.

It preys upon the dark side that we already have.

Our unholy trinity is complete, preparing the way for Lord Darkseid.

You won't remember any of this.

I think the Omega's a sign of corruption ... a mark that the darkness has fully taken over someone.

What if one of us were to get infected?

If we can't stop it, the darkness will infect every person on this planet.

Gold meteorite?

It could take away his powers.

You could be the greatest hero the world has ever known.

Not according to Jor-El.

Well, then, do what you do best ... prove him wrong.

You may not see me as a hero, but the rest of the world does!

And I decide my fate!

Your journey is far from over.

Goodbye, Jor-El.

And now the series finale of "Smallville."

"This is the story of an amazing boy who grew up in the fields of Kansas... In a little town called Smallville."

"When he became a man, "he believed the only way to seize his destiny was to turn his back on both his parents and refuse to see the darkness descending on Earth. But all that was about to change. He was about to face his greatest challenge."

Some people take time off when it's their wedding day.

There is no wedding.

Don't pretend you didn't hear what I said last night.

And you're one to talk.

That blue underoo sticking out of your collar means you're on the job, too.

Just keeping busy. I didn't want to crowd you.

You know, you haven't called in eight hours.

Usually you figure things out when I give you some space.

Or you can just keep avoiding me.

I'm not avoiding you.

I have work to do.

President just arrived in town for a fundraiser, plus a huge stack of police reports just came in.

And I have to call all the guests and let them know that the big day has been canceled.

Nice try, speedy, but you can't make 411 disappear.

Your Copperfield act's impressive, but it won't change my mind.

Go out there and save the day, wherever it needs saving.

Lois, there's a whole team of heroes out there protecting the world... So we can get married.

You really don't see it, do you?

You're a hero, and that's how it should be.

It's just that you've gotten so used to the fact that you know you're gonna be able to fix everything and make everything right that you cut out any possibility that there are some things that you just... You can't fix.

We don't need fixing.

We don't. But we are in an impossible situation, one that you can't superspeed or superhear or superleap your way out of.

Clark, every minute that you spend with me ... having dinner, arguing about paint colors, arguing about whether or not to get married ... you could be out there saving someone.

Lois, this is my future, and I want you to be a part of it.

Yeah, well, maybe we don't get what we want.

Clark, I'm just in your way.

You're not in my way, Lois. You're by my side. And if you really want to go through with canceling the wedding, you're gonna have to leave me standing at the altar.

Who knew tying the knot was so much work?

You got to remind me to thank Zatanna for making our nuptials so hassle-free.

I don't know.

I would have liked to have remembered some of the details of our wedding.

Well, considering the other details of that night, all I really need is a marriage license.

You know, I was wondering if you were ... I was gonna ask you ... Sorry.

You can go ahead. You should go first.

Go ahead.

If Zatanna hadn't put you under that spell, would you still have, um...

Gone through with it?


It's the best decision I don't remember making.

What about you? Ditto.

So, what are we supposed to do now, anyway?

Buy a condo and a cuisinart?

"Supposed to do" has never been a part of our unique relationship.

We've always made up our own way of doing things.


Including making our big day the quietest non-event of all time.

You know, we may be trumped in the non-event category by Lois and Clark.

She still hasn't called back.

I phoned, texted, and e-mailed her, but it's all quiet on the wedding front.

Well, you know, it is the matron of honor's duty to get the bride to the altar on time, so you may want to reel her in.

My best-man duties are all taken care of.

I, uh... picked these up this morning.

Aww. Simple and classic.


Well, all you have to do is get the mice and the pumpkin over to Cinderella's and get her to the church on time.

I see you're living up to your Luthor name, last heir to the dark dynasty.

I'm rebuilding this mansion to make it a symbol for something good ... to change the way that people see us and the Luthor legacy.

Why are you here?

I shouldn't be here, but I couldn't help myself.

Look at you... All grown up.

I always wanted to be there for you, a loving mother.

You were never my mother.

You were special.

Every soul on Earth charts its own destiny, each decision tipping it toward the light or toward the darkness.

I could always tell which side of the balance my girls would fall to.

But you were different.

You were born to darkness, yet you yearned for the light.

Being a Luthor doesn't determine my fate.

Then you must listen to me. I can't bear to see you suffer.

I want to give your soul eternal life!

Please, Lutessa, let me save you!

From what?

Darkseid's apokolips.

Evil in its purest form ... the heart of human nature, obscured over time as something to be cast away rather than embraced.

Hades, Kali ... even the word "Lucifer" is an old Latin phrase meaning "morning star," "bringer of light."

I'm afraid the centuries and translations have twisted Darkseid's true gifts.

But... Before the end of days, his rapture will be the only salvation.

I will never join you.

Farewell, my child. Bless your soul.



I mean, what do you mean?

When? When is this hell coming?

It's not coming, Lutessa.

It's upon us.


I thought you were staying at the bed and breakfast.

And I thought I was coming back to a home that you and Lois were building together.

We are, in Metropolis.

I hope.

I sent you a message.

We close escrow in a few days.

Clark, I think you misunderstood when I sent you the deed.

This is our home.

We've already accepted the offer.

You're ... you're right in the middle of a re-election campaign.

Just because I'm moving ahead with my life doesn't mean I'm letting go of everything that came before.

That was a hard lesson to learn.

Is this about dad?

Look, I know it's been tough since he died, being the one left behind ... that's just it.

I was never left behind. No matter where I am or who I'm choosing to bring into my life, your father is always with me.

And he's with you, if you just allow yourself to ... to see him.

I did.

Last year.

I-I thought I was talking to him.

But then I realized it was just an excuse for me not to face my future ... just like I was waiting for Jor-El to show me the way.

I had to move on.

I'm so proud of the man you've become.

But why bring up dad today of all days?

Because this is a day to celebrate the next step in the journey you're on and everyone who's been a part of it.

And you don't think I'm doing that?

Clark, you're so focused on what's ahead that you're starting to cut out the parts of your past that made you who you are.

I... I can't begin to imagine the pain you see every day when you're out there.

I know you have to put blinders on to cope with your responsibilities, but if you turn your back on all the experiences that made you strong and compassionate because they hurt...

I'm afraid that, one day, everything you learned in Smallville will have been for nothing.

I'm never gonna let that happen.

You already are, and you don't see it.

Sweetheart... All I'm saying is... you don't have to let go of the past to move on.

Yes, you do, mom.

I'm sorry.

I love you, but you have to find a way to put all of this behind you just like I did.

It's the only way to move on.

All right, come on, people.

Air Force One landed an hour ago, and they still haven't left the hangar.

This news hound smells a story.

Give me something I can sink my teeth into.

No, no, and no.

Look, I know you have a laundry list of reasons not to get married tumbling around in your head, but you're never gonna see the big picture if you get stuck in spin cycle.

There is no Chloe quip that's gonna make me change my mind.

Clark can hear the world's cries for help, and he's duty-bound to answer the call.

I am not gonna stand in his way.

He can't listen all the time, Lois. He's not God.

He can't be aware of every bird or blade of grass, okay?

He's a man.

And sometimes he needs to not listen.

He needs to rest, to love, to laugh.

And when he finally does decide to take to the skies, he's gonna need you to ground him.

Well, that's what I'm afraid of.

I'm grounding him, keeping him from soaring to new heights.

Oh, Lois... That is so not what he thinks.

But since you're not gonna meet him at the altar... You should hear that in his own words.

"I, Clark Kent, take you, Lois Lane, to be my companion...Forever.With you by my side, i will never be alone. Though the world sees a strong and independent woman, I've never known someone with such gentle grace and more pure of heart."

"When I've been lost, you've always been there to bring me back. So, on this day, at this moment, I pledge the rest of my life to you."

"You've always believed in me, and I believe in you. And when you believe in someone, it's not for a minute or just for now. It's forever."

I'm such an idiot.

Watchtower, access satellite Chloe Two.

Satellite Chloe Two access unavailable.

Not online.

What the hell is going on?

Satellite was programmed to disconnect.

Then we don't have our eye in the sky.

Who gave that command?

You do not have the proper security clearance, Miss Mercer.

Link me to Queen Industry satellite Hotel-Alpha-4-2.

All Queen Industry satellites are offline and inaccessible.

How is that possible?

Program command to disconnect came from Watchtower base at 1242 hours.

Bring up Watchtower security footage from that time.



What did you do?

Can you access Watchtower's orbiter's video feed?

Manhunter has put the new space station online, per your request.

Thank God for our favorite martian.

Watchtower, show me what's out there.

Video feed on main monitor.

I've done what you asked.

They won't know apokolips is coming.

Our dark lord will be pleased.

Now he asks one final mission of you ... to protect the souls we have saved.

This will disarm the bringer of light, the one who thr*at to vanquish the darkness.

I never wanted to say goodbye.

Then don't.

I thought I had it all figured out ... how to move on... How to bury my guilt, my insecurities, my questions, but... I'm so close.

I know who I'll become. I've seen it.

Lois thinks I should let her go.

Mom says I should hold on to you.

You don't need to hold on to somebody, Clark, if they're already in your heart.

I just can't keep leaning on you... On Jor-El. I need to stand alone, you know? It's better that way.

You mean it's easier that way.

Just I've missed you so much.

Then let me be there for you, Clark.

A-and don't ... don't push your mother away.

We're part of you.

It's like I'm on a cliff, standing on the edge, and where I'm looking is beyond where you've ever been before.

It's beyond where Jor-El has ever been before.

And as much as I value everything you've given me... I need to go beyond where either of you can guide me anymore, to be the hero that the world needs me to be.

Why is it that the biggest events are always the most painful?

You know, Clark, when I graduated from Excelsior, it was, uh... It was one of the most important days of my life, but... But I don't remember any of the speeches that were given.

I don't remember getting my diploma.

I just, uh... I remember my parents not being there.

I know what you're trying to say, Oliver, but I'm not here to mourn my father's death.

I already did that.

I've put it behind me.

Okay, well, if by "putting it behind you," you mean saying sayonara to your ice dad, selling the farm, and hanging out in a cemetery instead of being at church wearing an uncomfortably starched suit...

What if Lois was right? What if this is all wrong?

My training, Smallville, the farm, my memories ... what if it was all just a crutch?

Clark, I don't think taking a scalpel to your past is gonna turn you into the caped Skywalker of your future.

I thought Lois was my future.

I thought she was my new life and my destiny, but what if she's part of the memories I need to leave behind?

What if heroes aren't destined to love?

I've been down this road before.

I've gone through this. You know where it landed me?

Burning a perfectly good leather hoodie.

When I was on the edge, it took a really good friend to remind me who I was, to push me toward who I could become.

But that's the thing, Oliver.

No one can push me or lead me anywhere.

My whole life, I've been trying to fit in in two different worlds, and the truth is, I don't belong to either one of them.

I need to make my own path.

Maybe that means letting go of...both worlds.

Maybe it means letting go of Lois.



Careful, there, Prince Charming.

It's bad luck to sneak a peek at the bride before you get to the altar.

I know that technically you saw me this morning, but the rules only apply when the wedding is officially on.


Lois, I-I thought you called off the wedding.

Don't have a cow, farm boy... But I read your vows, and I know that that is against the rules, but a little birdie bridesmaid gave it to me, and... ...they were beautiful. And I-I realized that I was a fool because I was ... what we have is a gift, and I was trying to return it. And we're a perfect fit. So here's my vows. Now we're even.

Lois, sometimes you can see things that I can't.

And you ... you walked away, I thought, because you couldn't bring yourself to be the one to stand in the way of my destiny.

Well, here's the thing about that.

I can be loud.

And, at times, I'm a little bossy.

So someone might wonder why a person of your godlike caliber would be with a woman who is so imperfect.

Well, don't take this the wrong way, but you come with some baggage of your own.

And it's made me a better person, just like being with me will make you a greater man... And a super hero. I hope.

Lois, thing is...

What if you were right, you know?

With your family not being here and the doubts that you had yesterday... Maybe the stars aren't aligned.

Well, believe me, it's a buzz k*ll that the Chief of Staff whisked daddy away into some hush-hush meeting, but... I'm a big girl.

I can walk myself down the aisle.

As my mom always said, the ones you love are always with you.

And right now, my dad would be telling me that I should have laid out all my clothes the night before so that I wouldn't be whirling around like a dervish.

And mom ... she's reminding me that I need to breathe and take in every moment so that... I can remember them forever.

What would your dad say, Clark?

I'm not sure he would say anything, Lois. That's kind of the way it was with my dad. I always knew exactly what he was thinking.

Clark, what did you mean... About the stars not aligning?

"I wanted these vows to be perfect, but perfection's a hard thing to get your hands on. But life is meant to be a little messy. And when it comes to love, I think it's like my dad always said about the army ... you only sign up if it's the only thing you could ever imagine doing. And, Clark, I cannot imagine spending a moment of my life without you. So I promise that I will always have your back, as you will always have mine."

"You're my best friend, you're my home, and you're my true love. And I am yours and will be forever."


I'm here.

I'll see you at the chapel.

Yeah. See you there.

I hope one of you gets this.

Uh, because of the interference in the atmosphere, I don't know if my calls are going through, but ... What the hell?

Oh, God!

Everything okay, Smallville?


It's perfect.

"I wanted these vows to be perfect, but perfection's a hard thing to get your hands on. But life is meant to be a little messy. And when it comes to love, I think it's like my dad always said about the army ... you only sign up if it's the only thing you could ever imagine doing."

"I, Clark Kent, take you, Lois Lane, to be my companion, forever. And with you by my side, I will never be alone."

"You're my best friend, you're my home, and you're my true love. And I am yours and will be forever."

"On this day, at this moment, I pledge the rest of my life to you. You've always believed in me, and I believe in you. And when you believe in someone, it's not for a minute or just for now. It's forever."


Oliver, what are you do ...


Get everybody out of here!


Surrender to the darkness. Never.

Clark! Lois, no!



This isn't you.

Don't let it take you over.

Oliver? Listen to me.

You need to fight it.

You're too late.

There's no saving you.

That's not true.

You haven't always made the right choices, and you once gave up on yourself and those around you.

I'm not giving up on you, Oliver.

You have a good heart. Let it guide you.

You and I ... we have to save the world together.

I need you to be a hero.

I know you'll make the right choice.

You know Gold Kryptonite will take my powers away forever.

I believe in you.

Everything's okay now.

No, it's not.

Looks like the world's gonna need its heroes sooner than we thought.

To witness these strange atmospheric changes.

There seems to be an eclipse... I guess the cellphone reception was starting to go down while Tess was leaving you this message.

Can you play that again?

I was trying to warn you.

Watchtower's been compromised.

The prophets are at the center of this.

According to the journals, the apocalypse is an actual planet.

It's coming.

The eclipse ... Darkseid's behind it.

That must have been why he tried to get Oliver to put that ring on me.

He knows I would have tried to stop him.

We need to find Tess.

It sounds like she may know a way to defeat the darkness.

Thank you, General.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Defense Department aren't saying anything until the President makes a statement.

If the Pentagon's not stepping up, I'll call in every available agent.

Something tells me we'll need them all.

No offense, but I think we're gonna need a bigger team, and if Watchtower's down, I got to go to Star City to access my database.

Well, then I'm going with you.

No, I got this.

Your talents are better used here with Clark.

We got to figure out what happened with Watchtower.

See you in the funny pages.


I'd feel better if you let me be your chauffeur.


You need to do what you do best ... be a hero.

You too, Sullivan.


I knew you'd see me again...

When you were ready.

I made a mistake, dad.

I thought I had to leave you behind.

But it's you and mom and everyone that I care about that makes this world worth saving.

But you're worried you're gonna fail this time.

I know you're scared, son.

I faced Darkseid before.

He knows my weakness.

He almost defeated me.

I need your help.

But, son, he never saw the man who's standing before me now.

Clark Kent, as much as your mother and I tried to protect you from your origins, tried to prepare you to face any challenge... ...I'm sorry, son, but our guidance just isn't enough anymore. You're gonna have to let Jor-El guide you from here on out.

I can't, dad. I turned my back on him, like I did you.

He's your father. He'll understand. Don't doubt yourself, Clark. This has been coming for a long time. Before you arrived... We wanted a child so badly. The day you found us in that field, you were the miracle we prayed for. Now the world needs that same miracle. Son...It's time.

Thank you.

It's good to have you back.

I should have g-guessed it would be you.

No, no. No, no, no.

Don't b*at yourself up, Tess.

I've been watching you very closely.


I'm impressed.

I must admit... I underestimated you.

It's a little late, huh?

It's not really time for a father-daughter chat.

There's literally a planet hurtling toward earth.

Do I catch the tiniest hint of a doubt?

Are you worried that your savior in red might not prevail?

He needs me.


He needs no one.

I've seen what he's capable of.

It's ironic... I'm the only one who seems to believe in him, isn't it?

Don't question where my allegiance lies.

It's time you embrace your lineage, Tess ... time to become the Luthor you were destined to be.

Why did you bring me here?

My son, Lex ... your brother, a genius ... carried on with the family business.

As you know, Lex cloned himself.

There were many clones.

None of them were perfect, but some of the pieces were.



Lex took the best pieces and grafted them into a masterwork.

I don't believe you.

Of course you don't.

Lex is a visionary. You're not.

Where is he, then?

He'll reveal himself when he's ready.

It's not possible.

Well, there is one thing Lex wasn't able to duplicate successfully.

Lex is missing a heart.

And who better to save him than the sister who loves him?

Luthors are survivors.

You are one of us, my dear.

It's all right.

When the day is done, I will see the Luthor name resurrected... More powerful than ever.


According to the journals, the apocalypse is an actual planet.

It's coming.

What the hell? Oh, my God!





Tess. Tess, Tess.

You must see that you're the cause of your own undoing.

He's your brother.

Don't you understand?

I thought Conner's heart would have been a more poetic choice.

You've hidden him so cleverly, there's no alternative.

Lex is worth k*lling your own daughter?

Lex is worth everything to me.

Finally... ...You will serve an important purpose in my life.

Looks like my purpose in your life has changed.



You refused me once, but this may be the moment when you'll reconsider my offer.

I never intended to live forever.

There's only one life I care about.

Let my son live.

In exchange for your soul.



All satellite and Internet connections went down 15 minutes ago.

Have you found Tess?

Only her abandoned car.

She was on her way to Smallville to warn us.

I think with that planet hurtling toward Earth, everyone got the warning.


You think those three prophets, or whatever you call them, took Tess?

We're about to find out.

She left her cellphone underneath the car seat with a video message for one of us to find.

One of us with X-ray vision, maybe.

My fellow Americans, the White House scientific advisers have ensured me that the eclipse you are all undoubtedly seeing is caused by a meteor...

We know that the prophets use people's darkness to mark them with an Omega.

What we don't know is why.

And Tess quoted one of the prophecies as saying that the markings weren't just spiritual.

There's some sort of anti-life dark force that could bring about the apocalypse.

You mean like bringing a giant planet crashing into ours?

Exactly like that ... maybe the marking has some sort of unexplainable gravitational pull.

Too bad anti-life equations aren't covered in physics 101.

I need to figure out a way to lift the darkness and break whatever's binding these people to that planet.

Today definitely tops Chloe's wall of weird.

Exactly how many people are marked?

More than you want to know.

Clark, you inspired the darkness out of Oliver.

I can't do that for everyone on the planet, Lois.

If Tess knows how to stop this, I need to find her.

She got a sh*t of her car's parking camera and the license plate of whoever took her.

Our internal database shows it's registered to... A company called Preclox?


It was founded only six weeks ago.

According to their bank records, they have limitless funds.

Genetic research.

I only know of one mega-mogul who's obsessed with genetic engineering.

Lionel Luthor.

Who knows that he's being tracked by Tess Mercer.

Yeah, but the GPS went down with the satellites.

It should tell us where he was 15 minutes ago.

Lois, that's the Luthor mansion.

But that place b*rned to the ground.

Maybe what Lionel's after is underground.

The Luthor mansion was built on a labyrinth of corridors underneath it.

Lois, no matter what happens...

Clark, a person that I greatly admire once told me that when you believe in someone, it's not for a few minutes or sometimes or just for now. It's forever. Now go save the world. I'll be fine.

I call on each and every one of you, to stand strong in the moments to come that our military has a precision plan to take care of the meteor fragments. We will take swift action in securing the world's safety.

A General doesn't miss his daughter's wedding unless he's been called to duty.

Oh, my God.

Excuse me.


Janet, you're covering the President's visit, right?

Look, I need you to get a message to him for me.

Look, I grew up in the military.

That speech has buzz words ... "precision plan," "swift action."

They're gonna nuke that thing.

Only, that thing isn't the little meteor that'll break apart like they think it is.

It's a planet, and it won't even make a dent.

But the radioactive fallout of this m*ssile ... it'll k*ll millions.

Take it to The Inquisitor.

I've got a plane to catch with the President.

O-okay, well, then you tell him that he can't press the proverbial button.

Why not?

Because The Blur will save us before it ever comes to that.

The Blur?

Oh, my God, Lois.

If you think the President, his military advisers, or anyone is ever gonna take you seriously ... I'm sorry.

I wouldn't have had to do that if the world wasn't in jeopardy... and you weren't such a bitch.

Hello, Clark. Can't say I love what you've done with the place.


You still say it the same way ... astonishment mixed with a hint of dread, yet...with a hopeful finish.

You're alive.

Seems my father had a... a change of heart. And I got a second chance at life.

Where's Tess? What have you done with her?!

She's fine. I wouldn't worry so much about my dear little sister.

You know, I used to think it was our families that made us who we are.

Then I hoped it was our friends.

But if you look at history, the great men and women of the world have always been defined... by their enemies.

You have a second chance. You can change all that.

But that's the thing about memories ... you can't forget them.

Like how you were always that one step ahead of me, Clark.

No matter how meticulously I prepared, no matter how strategic I was... If only I'd known I never stood a chance.

It wasn't a competition.

Of course it wasn't. You were born to be the chosen one. You're simply better than us.

And that always k*lled you.


No, what k*lled me is that you didn't even want it. You fought it. You ... you hid from it! I would have taken it and relished it, embraced it.

My destiny wasn't yours to take!

I get that now... Which is why I finally embraced my own.

You and I... We will both be great men. Because of each other, we have a destiny together, Clark... only on different sides.

I'll always be there to stop you. Always.

Oh, I'm counting on it.

Our story hasn't been written yet, Kal-El.

And every villain is only as great as his hero.

But, you see, that all relies on you saving us from the coming apocalypse.

You know about Darkseid?

You really think I just read the Cliffsnotes of the Veritas journals?

They foretold of a chosen savior ... the light that will inspire this world out of darkness.

You are the light, Clark.

Only you hold the power within you.

I'm not so sure that Clark Kent can save the entire world on his own.

He can't.

But we both know who can.

I'm sorry I couldn't save you, Lex.

Activate computer monitors.

Monitors on.

Systems online.

The day of judgment is upon us.

We've saved the willing souls from the coming apocalypse to serve the dark lord.

Our work is done.

You can say that again.

Your mark has been lifted.

That's impossible.

I got this friend ... cool leather jacket, blurs faster than a speeding b*llet.

He's pretty good at impossible.

You were so close to experiencing the rapture, known only to those who will be serving our lord for eternity while all the others perish.

Do you really think you possess the power to vanquish our lord from the souls of those he saved?


But I got friends in high places.

You're not authorized to go in there.

I must have forgotten my hall pass.

I was just going to the bathroom.

It's that way.


Well, they said that they would brief us in 2 minutes.

It's now been 15, and I really need...

Do you see that giant molten orb out there?

Now, whatever story they told you, it's crashing into the planet.

You can see it with your own eyes.

Hey! Hey, hey, hey, hey!

I just need a few minutes of your time.

I'm sorry, sir.

No! Wait!

I have information that you need to know.

I don't know how you got on this plane, young lady, but you're stepping so far out of your position.

All that matters is the truth, and you don't have it.

Please, Mr. Secretary.

I have proof that the meteor that you're about to nuke into oblivion is much larger than you realize, with a density that will result in you spewing nuclear fallout over half the hemisphere that could take out millions of people.

But you already know that, don't you?

My God.

You all realize that you're gonna be taking out 1/3 of the Earth's population, and you're not even gonna warn them?

We can't spread panic.

It will only aggravate an already impossible situation.

And what about your families?

And the President?

Where are we gonna ... To a secure bunker.

The casualties are nothing compared to losing the entire planet.

We don't have a choice.

Now, if you'll excuse us ... No, wait.

You do have a choice ... heroes, one in particular who will stop this before you unleash your nukes.

Now, I know that some deeply disturbed brass may have rounded them up and tried to dirty their names, but the people had their day.

And they gave our heroes a chance to prove themselves.

You owe the people of this country a chance to see that their faith was worth something.

The world is in crisis!

This is not a time for your little hero crusade, miss ... Lane.

This is exactly the time for my hero.

He will be here. He will save us.

I promise.

Now, I know that you all want to see your families again.

You just need to give our heroes a chance.

Your heroes have five minutes.

The lost son of Jor-El.


My father sent me here to protect this planet.

And I will fight you till my last breath.

There must be a part of you that's disgusted by how easily your people fell to me.

They may not be perfect, but I believe even in the darkest soul, there's always hope.

People want to believe in something greater, and it may be easier to hate... But it's stronger to love.

Is it?

Eons have passed since I came face-to-face with a force that could possibly tip the balance to the light.

Aah! You are the light!

You cast out the darkness from Oliver Queen, and you will obliterate my darkness from the rest of the world if you are not stopped!

You will surrender to me.

You will lose your soul.

I will annihilate you!

Clark, you're gonna have to let Jor-El guide you from here on out.

You've always had the power within you, my son.

These were my trials.

Your final trial is upon you, my son.

You are ready.

Seize your Destiny.

Something told me that I'd find you here.

I combed the lab, and I saw what happened.

Long time, sis.

Did you always know?

Why do you think I recruited you, treated you as my own flesh and blood?

You used me.


I'd say dear old dad did most of the abusing.

Wouldn't you?

I guess the b*llet in his chest answers that question, huh?

He wanted nothing more than to have you back again.

And what did you want, Tess?

Something I'll never have.



I love you, sis.

You know I'm actually saving you.

From what?

From turning into me.

It's too late.

Clark already did that.

It's the neurotoxin that you started at Summerholt.

It penetrates ... dermal tissue.

Paralyzing all cognitive recognition.

How long?

30 seconds.

What will I remember?


The world before this moment won't exist to you.

Your journey has come to an end, Kal-El.

I shouldn't have tried to push away my Kryptonian side.

My strength is accepting it ... accepting you.

You honor me.

A father's pride cannot be measured in words, but know that I am proud of you, son.

You have no idea how long I've waited to hear you say that.

We have been down a long road together, Kal-El ... one paved with difficult trials.

Those trials are behind you now.

Any father can only hope that he is one day humbled by the feats of his son.

But it is your soul, Kal-El, of which I am most proud.

You ... and you alone ... possess the courage, the determination, and the compassion that will be required of you to lift the darkness from the Earth.

I ask you to remember one thing.

Your abilities may be of my blood, but it is your time in Smallville, with Jonathan and Martha Kent and all the people there, that made you a hero, Kal-El.

Always hold on to Smallville.

This is Lois Lane of The Daily Planet, reporting from aboard Air Force One.

Miss Lane.

Mr. President.

Come on, Clark.

You can do this.


And that was the day the boy turned into Superman."


Read it again, please. Oh.

There will always be more adventures for another day.

Did you get it?

Thought you might need something blue.

I did, just in time. Thanks, cuz.

Wish me luck.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Bad idea.

Very, very bad idea.

How many "Great Caesar's Ghost"s?

Nobody tries to strong-arm The Daily Planet!

If Luthor thinks he can bully...

Four, before his coffee.

But... Did you get my shots?

Love the framing, love the colors.

Where's the drama?


Um, did you see the one with the elephant?

The Man of Steel deserves better than a circus incident and a fender bender.

I want pecs, I want cape, I want pearly whites.

Yes, Miss Lane. If Luthor wants this paper, he's gonna have to deal with Perry White!

Your brother left big shoes for you to fill, Olsen.

I know you're up to the task.

Lane! I know you're out there!

Stories don't write themselves, Lane!

Great Caesar's Ghost!

I'm sorry. Excuse me.

Pardon me.

Oh! Unh!

Oh, I'm sorry, Miss Lane.

Let me just, uh... It's just I was, uh...

Can it, Clark. No one's paying any attention.

Yes, Miss Lane.

That's so hot.


But listen, this is serious.

Do you have them?

You mean these?


Are you ready?

I've been ready for seven years.

Somebody tell Perry White! Just came in over the wire!

There's a b*mb in an elevator uptown!

Just tell the minister I'm gonna be a few minutes late.
