Synopsis for "Superman"

Kal-El of Earth-22 is at JSA Headquarters contemplating his past. After having a discussion with Cyclone, he decides to go to Metropolis to see this reality's Lois Lane. Upon arriving however, he finds a group of terrorists attacking the Daily Planet with Kryptonite gas. Kryptonite from this reality doesn't work on Kal-El and he easily defeats the criminals, albeit with great recklessness. Superman shows up and the two have a brief altercation with one another.

Later, Kal-El learns that a version of Norman McCay from his reality, also exists on this one. He flies to McCay's church in Chicago, Illinois and has a talk with the elderly, retired reverend. McCay gives Kal-El hope for the future.

He returns to JSA headquarters whereupon he meets visitor Lois Lane. Lois wants to know how her Earth-22 counterpart died and Kal-El recalls the haunting memory of when the Joker brutally murdered her on his world.

Kingdom Come was a four-issue limited series published in 1996 under DC's Elseworlds imprint. Like all Elseworlds, this series was set in an alternate reality outside that of the mainstream DC Universe (in this case, Earth-96/Earth-22/Earth 22). However, several elements and characters were later introduced in the mainstream universe.
