A being of living lightning plunges all of Metropolis into a world of darkness! With the power out, how can Lois—and the Daily Planet's replacement, Lexcom—stay in business? And how will Superman and the Metropolis Special Crimes Unit,led by Maggie Sawyer—keep the city from falling apart in the darkness?
In an extra-sized final issue, Superman must save Lois' soul from the depths of hell: ItÕs the DAY OF JUDGMENT! In "The Heart of Hell," Silver Banshee has taken Lois Lane's soul deep into the bowels of the underworld, and the Man of Steel must confront all sorts of personal demons (courtesy of Neron) in order to save her.
A villain called Carbide is running rampant through Metropolis. His unique and strange abilities, coupled with his rock-hard exterior, make him a formidable foe for the Man of Steel. But that's only the beginning! A new underground criminal element is being born in the city and Carbide just might be its mightiest member. It's a true test of Superman's newly recovered strength as he faces his latest challenge!
