This story takes place after Superman: Rebirth #1. At Hamilton County, Lois and Clark are trying to build a new life with their son, Jonathan Kent. However, it seems that hiding their secret identity isn't easy, especially for Jon.
Clark Kent is mourning the death of Superman (New52 incarnation) at his grave alongside Pa and Ma Kent's graves. He realizes that this world still needs a Superman, therefore he dons the cape once more.
In the evening, Clark wakes up due to the lightning. Unfortunately, it hit their barn, leaving the animals in danger. Clark goes in the barn and saves the animals before they get hurt.
The next day, Jon asks him if they are going to build the barn. Clark tells him that they have other chores to do first. Clark wants Jon to promise him he won't use his powers. Jon promises his dad and leaves with his cat Goldie to fill the corn harvester.
As Jon is running behind Goldie, a hawk is approaching Goldie and manages to grab him, at a fast pace. Jon is furious and wants his cat back, using his heat vision at the hawk would be the solution. Conversely, both the hawk and Goldie are dead. Saddened by the fact that his cat is now dead, he's also broken his promise. Moreover, his neighbour, Kathy Branden, has seen him using his powers.
At dinner, Lois and Clark are having a conversation whereas Jon barely talks. After Kathy stops by their house to offer them milk, Lois and Clark both agree it will be nice to have a neighbour at Jon's age. Jon disagrees and finds nothing nice about it. Everything they do is a secret, his dad's secretly a superhero and his mom writes books under a secret name. In addition, Jon is secretly half human and half kryptonian. Clark tells him to go to his room to blow off steam.
In his bedroom, he sneakily watches his dad discussing something with Batman and Wonder Woman. The Trinity turn their head and look at Jon, all of a sudden. Jon is surprised and immediately disappears in front of the window. His dad enters his room and tells him to come with him.
