PREVIOUSLY IN SUPERMAN LEGENDS
Years ago, before the destruction of KRYPTON, KANDOR was visited by BRAINIAC - a horrifying alien intelligence that ABDUCTED the city!
Now, after defeating Brainiac, Superman has FREED the abducted city and placed it in the Arctic wastes, where it has grown back to its original size - along with a HUNDRED THOUSAND KRYPTONIANS - all of whom are developing Superman’s powers after exposure to our yellow sun! But it's not all good news for Superman.
As his final act before his capture and defeat, Brainiac deployed a MISSILE to the Kent Farm.
Although no-one was hurt by the initial blast, JONATHAN KENT, Superman's adoptive father, suffered a HEART ATTACK while saving his wife and DIED.
The rumbles of Kandor's eruption and regrowth drowned out MA KENT'S cries for help... Superman was too late, unable to be at his father's side while he breathed his last.
Now Superman seeks to balance the pain he feels as Clark Kent with the joy he feels as Kal-El - no longer the last Kryptonian...
