Synopsis for "Heart of Hell"
On Krypton, Kal-El works busily with his father, experimenting apon a lower life form. When the tests are completed, they move onto the next. It's a human female. A female called Lois Lane. Suddenly Superman is himself and he remembers everything. He smashed open Lois' cell, and Krypton dies. Superman knows exactly where he is. Hell, and Neron is his tormentor. And he knows why he's here. To rescue his wife's soul.
We flashback to Metropolis, shortly after hell had frozen over. Superman meets The Silver Banshee, who passes on the message that Neron has his wife's soul. Superman follows the route he is shown and travels down into the depths of Hell, where he is bombarded with all sorts of twisted images.
Having defeated Neron, Superman finds himself in a wheat field in Kansas, with his son. The two Kent's head back to the farm to be with the family. Clark is married to Lana Lang. Their meal is interrupted by a woman called Lois Lane who's investigated alleged UFO sightings. Clark takes her outside, and tells her the truth about his alien heritage. Lana comes out into the field where Clark took Lane, and tears him away from Lois, literally. Neron reveals himself.
Superman rushes home, to his pregnant wife, Lois Lane and tugs his daughter into bed. While watching the TV, Lois' waters break. On the way to the hospital, Lois has problems and Clark is forced to fly his wife to a hospital or she will die. Later when the doctor comes to tell Superman the bad news, Superman attacks. It's Neron.
It is now that Neron reveals the fact that it is only Superman's soul that is in Hell. His body, which is leading a to relight Hell, is being controlled by Neron's soul. Superman is left alone in the void. Superman eventually breaks free, and manages to find Lois. The Silver Banshee is guarding her, and she attacks The Man of Tomorrow. Superman soon wins the fight and takes his wife's soul out of Hell, and to reclaim his body.
