This Just Happened: Superman #1 Meets Superman #2 Meets...

SPOILER ALERT: If you haven’t been reading the “Final Days of Superman” saga and don’t want to know what happens next, stop reading this post now (spoilers ahead!)

“The Final Days of Superman,” a brand-new epic saga from Peter J. Tomasi, began with SUPERMAN #51 and has continued through the Super books since April. Now part six of the story ("The Great Pretender") begins with new revelations in ACTION COMICS #52!

Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are on their way back from China, where they have just met the mysterious Dr. Omen and learned of some interesting experiments she has been performing—trying to create her own metahuman’s with Superman’s DNA.

The super trinity were originally tracking the fake Superman, a mysterious newcomer with the abilities and memories of Clark Kent, but who radiates solar energy and is deeply unstable. But the pseudo-Superman (can we call him Solar Superman?) had gone to see Lois Lane, and has a secret he’s dying to share! Yes, he went there, and he took Lois with him!

Lois Lane… Meet Clark White!

This Solar Superman sits down to have a chat with Clark White, demanding to know if this bearded man named Clark is ANOTHER Superman on this planet. Fearing for the life of his wife Lois (the other Lois, not this Lois) and son Jon, Clark White reveals himself and goes on the offense!

Meanwhile, Superman is getting sicker, with Wonder Woman and Batman eager to get him somewhere safe, but they see an energy signal similar to Superman’s in Salinas and take off to investigate.

Then this just happened:

One…Two…Three Supermen? What is more surprising: That there are three? Or that Clark White clearly has long been aware of this world's Kal-El without him knowing?
