Synopsis for "Godfall, Part One: Home"
Kal-El of Krypton, with a silver S shield on the back of his cape for his red outfit, muses what it is like to fly, as he leaps high into the air on a Kryptonian version of a motorcycle. Below him stretches the Kryptonian landscape.
He muses about his job, and how tiring it is to think about bills and rent and working, how he wishes there was something better.
At his home, he fails miserably cooking, and his wife, Lyla, a woman with very few clothes and long purple hair, asks him for help getting out of the shower.
He does, and she consoles him for their debt, blaming it on herself and being an alien (She has tattoos all over her body.).
Lyla heads off, and Kal meets her outside, telling her he'll do his best to cheer up. A young boy, Kon-Lar, plays with a small slug creature named Splat, throwing it at Kal. Kal gives it back to him, and the planet tremors.
Kal screams at them to head into the house, and starts moving to save them when they all realize it's just the normal planetary tremors caused by the terraforge, Jor-El's project which stabilized the planet before he died.
Later, on the road again, Kal muses over being a low level government goon, when a bunch of terrorists attack him on his bike and try to kill him.
The terrorists believe that Krypton has a harsh policy towards aliens. They keep slamming into him, and Kal dodges as best as he can.
He kicks the foot brakes for the cycle on one, who flies up into the air.
Suddenly, yellow sun comes from the sky and hits Kal. He is suddenly empowered, and he hits one of the goons almost accidentally with heat vision. The goons scatter.
Kal wonders what's happening to him.
