Synopsis for "Reign of the Superman!"

Lois Lane wakes up to the sound of tapping on her window. Thinking it's the birds again, Lois draws back the drapes to reveal the image of an S-emblazoned chest. It is Superman -- the one and only real Superman she knows! She leaps into his arms and the two of them kiss in midair.

After he takes a shower, Lois discusses with Kal-El how they could let the world know that his civilian identity of Clark Kent has come back from the dead. But their discussion is soon stopped when Kal-El suddenly hears Maggie Sawyer outside a bank being robbed by a criminal named Loophole. Quickly he goes into action as Superman, freeing Loophole's hostages but getting a taste of his matter-bending powers before realizing how he can stop him. Maggie is in disbelief that this is really Superman come back from the dead, but her doubt is removed when Superman reports another activity going on in the city that requires his attention and so zooms off to attend to it.

Meanwhile, a helicopter bringing Superboy, Supergirl, and Steel back to Metropolis lands, and Steel is turned over to medics while the Eradicator's body is given to scientists from S.T.A.R. Labs before the other two heroes fly off. Superboy returns to his apartment to rest, but he is soon visited by Tana Moon who tells him that she is leaving Metropolis.

After Superman rescues some children that were trapped in a basement following the devastation caused by the Doomsday confrontation, Jimmy Olsen suggests that maybe Clark Kent could be trapped in a basement somewhere in Metropolis. Superman just wonders how come he never thought of it.
