In the present day, it will affect how Selina handles Andrea Beaumont, a.k.a. Phantasm, who has a vendetta to carry out against the Clown Prince of Crime, fueled by the righteous fury of a mother who lost her son. And this whole chain of events is what ultimately leads to Catwoman killing The Joker in the future-a secret she can’t keep from her daughter, Batwoman, much longer. Particularly now that old man Penguin is involved.

SUPERMAN: LOIS AND CLARK
Writer: Dan Jurgens
Artist: Lee Weeks
Publisher: DC Comics
Release Date: September 6, 2016
Cover Price: $17.90
They were the first couple of truth and justice, the Man of Steel and the tough-as-nails reporter who was the love of his life. Then came the Flashpoint…the Convergence…and their world was wiped from reality, replaced with the New 52 worlds that make up the Multiverse.

Now Lois and Clark, as well as their young son, Jonathan, have been transported to an Earth much like the one they left behind, yet radically different. An Earth with familiar heroes, familiar faces, familiar names, but entirely different ages and attitudes. An Earth with its own Lois Lane, its own Clark Kent—its own Superman. An Earth where Superman is distrusted—and where two Supermen could cause a disaster.

For years they’ve stayed below the radar, with Clark fighting evil under the cover of darkness and Lois crusading against crime as an anonymous journalist. But now all their secrets are about to be exposed to a world far harsher than the one they left behind—and Jonathan is caught in the crossfire. Now only one question remains:

Has the time come for the original Man of Tomorrow to reveal himself?
