A quiet young man called Clark Kent arrives in Metropolis seeking to find his place in the world. But this is no ordinary young man. Clark was born on a distant planet and possesses powers that could rip the Earth apart – or save it from any peril. Forces are in motion that will change Clark’s world forever, as the military has reconstructed the spaceship he arrived in; and are hunting him down.
Meanwhile, from the depths of space, an alien armada seeks out the lone survivor of the cataclysm that engulfed Krypton. It is led by Tyrell, a being with the power to match that of his quarry. The world stands on the brink of destruction, and Clark must decide if he is ready to accept his destiny.
