But now, the world''s crises have gone unheeded for five long years since Superman''s mysterious disappearance. Without him, crime has risen in the city of Metropolis and beyond; that''s not even counting the future destructive acts of Lex Luthor, who has been sprung from prison with the specific intent of using Superman''s technological secrets for his own personal gain and glory. Lois Lane, star reporter for the Daily Planet and the love of Superman''s life, has moved on since Superman left without a word. She has even won a Pulitzer Prize for her essay, "Why the World Doesn''t Need Superman." Lois has other issues to contend with--she is now engaged to the editor''s nephew and has a young son to look after.

His destiny lies in Metropolis, where one look in Lois''s eyes tell him that this place, among the flawed but ultimately good people of Earth, is his true home. And with Lex''s plan coming to fruition mere hours after his return, the world will never need Superman more than it does now.
