Synopsis for "Lies & Revelations"

In Metropolis, Maggie Sawyer, Dan Turpin, and the SCU stop a brawl going on between two feuding factions of Superman worshipers at his memorial statue. Superboy wakes up to find himself heavily bound and a prisoner of Cyborg Superman and Mongul inside what is now called Engine City. Cyborg Superman deceives the Justice League Task Force into traveling into space to track down the "rogue Superman" responsible for Coast City's destruction. Lois Lane and Maggie Sawyer discover that something has siphoned off part of the memorial statue's mass. Mongul secretly transmits to Superboy in his prison Cyborg Superman's plan to turn Metropolis into another Engine City. In Superman's Fortress of Solitude, the heavily injured Last Son of Krypton is placed in a special healing chamber where he is forced to come to terms in knowing that he is actually the Eradicator who has deluded himself into thinking he is Superman. At the bottom of the sea, a Kryptonian battlesuit traverses the deep, its passenger heading for Metropolis.


This issue is reprinted in the The Return of Superman trade paperback and the Superman: The Death and Return of Superman Omnibus.
