Synopsis for "The New World, Part 1"

Superman managed to drive Mister Mxyzptlk back with help of his wife and son, but the world history has changed as a result of that battle.[1] Clark Kent finds himself working on his desk in the Daily Planet. After finishing his article he and Lois say goobbye to Perry -who is apparently their son's godfather now- and leave.

Superman feels he still needs answers, and he takes off for his Fortress. There, he reviews a recording of his history: he watches holographic displays of Krypton and his birth parents' home, noting a holopic of his uncle Zor-El, aunt Alura and cousin Kara. As he watches his biological parents crying while they put him in the rocket, he wonders if he could have done the same with Jon.

The holographic display changes, and Superman watches his foster parents finding his rocket. Jonathan thinks they should warn the town's sheriff, but Martha will have none of it and easily talks her husband into adopting the baby and telling everybody that child is their biological son.

Superman sees more images of his childhood and his move to Metropolis where he started out his public hero career. It's his life, just as he remembers it, but he cannot help but feeling unsettled. All of sudden he believes he hears something, although his robot Kelex insists they are alone.

Though, someone is watching them through a Sunstone.

And unknown to Superman, a mysterious figure is recruiting several of his foes.
