Meet Clark Kent, a young reporter who just learned that the world will soon come to an end, and there's nothing he can do to save it. Sounds like a job for his alter ego...Superman!
After years of standing idle, the young man from Krypton defies the wishes of his fathers to come out to the world as the first superhero of the Space Age. As each decade passes and each new danger emerges, he wonders whether this is the one that will kill him and everyone he loves. Superman realizes that even good intentions are not without their backlash as the world around him transforms into a place as determined to destroy itself as he is to save it.
