A small cafe in Manhattan
She-Hulk has a look of disbelief, "You're an alien?"
Superman nods, "Yes, a Kryptonian to be specific."
She-Hulk shrugs, "Well, I've heard weirder. So, anymore Kryptonians around here?"
Superman sighed, "As far as I know I'm the only Kryptonian anywhere. The planet was destroyed and my species went with it."
"How does a whole planet get destroyed? Deathstar?"
Superman chuckled a bit, "I doubt you'd believe me if I told you. Even I have a hard time believing it."
He shrugged, "Now, I only have a message from my biological father to go on here but apparently there's this creature called Galactus that basically eats planets."
"Wait, you're saying something ate your home world?"
"I told you, you wouldn't believe me. Well apparently when this silver guy my father called the herald showed up he put me in a ship to save me. I was alone because no one believed him and refused to evacuate until it was far too late."
"My ship came to Earth where I was raised by my adoptive parents. I didn't find out about any of this until I was about 13 and started developing powers."
She sighed a bit, "Well you got my story beat, I got my power from a blood transfusion. So, do you have a name other than Superman?"
"My Kryptonian name is Kal-El."
"But what did your Earth parents name you?"
He smiled, "Sorry, no secret identities on a first date."
"So, you think you'll get a second one?"
"I was hoping."
The Baxter building
Johnny Storm stood looking at a large monitor, "What's with the Silver Surfer looking dude?"
A booming voice came from behind, "He is Herald to the World Devourer, Galactus."
The Fantastic Four turned their attention to the large entity before them.
The workers at the lab were shocked as an alert went off. Mastermold then spoke, "Watcher detected. Capture priority one."
The Sentinels present all activated and left the building while technicians frantically tried to shut them down.
Superman landed on the lawn and let She-Hulk down, "Thanks for the ride."
Superman looked concerned, "Is it normal to have this many Avengers here?"
She looked to see more than a dozen reserve members walking in, "That's not a good sign."
As they walked in Iron Man put a hand up to stop Superman, "Sorry, Avengers only."
Iron Man noted that Superman gave him the same glare as Clark Kent, "Do I know you?"
Captain America then spoke up, "If Richards is right, we need all the help we can get."
She-Hulk looked to Iron Man, "What's going on?"
"Reed Richards is worried about something called Galactus, says it eats worlds."
Captain America noticed fear in Superman as She-Hulk stammered out, "Its real?"
Iron Man opened his face plate, "What's real?"
"This Galactus thing, It killed Superman's people."
The whole room turned to look at the stunned Kryptonian.
The Silver Surfer floated above the city and began emitting an energy signature to call his master.
