Jonathan Kent is currently on a galactic-wide trip with his biological grandfather Jor-El, saved from death by Dr Manhattan, and despite originally going with Lois Lane, she’s been holed up in a Chicago hotel writing a tell-all biography about her life as Superman’s girlfriend, and probably publically making her husband Clark Kent a supercuckold in order to give her son a little more freedom to operate. All without Clark knowing a thing…
So, with the Earth sent into the Phantom Zone and being assaulted by everyone, Clark gets the chance to reminisce about happier times when he and Jonathan were flying around the place and just chatting, Superson to Superdad. And sharing the kind of things that fathers share with sons. Like killing Jonathan’s uncle, Batman.
You know, a lesson to grow by. Advice to remember and work with. An inspiration to carry to his adult life.
Just in case Dark Knight Returns comes along…
