Synopsis Arion shows Superman and his friends what the future world of 2014 will be like. Lois and Jimmy are scavenging supplies from a destroyed Metropolis when confronted by ghostwolves, and rescued by Sirocco. Luthor and Parasite (who is acting like Superman from earlier absorptions) join the fight, driving off the ghostwolves. Arion describes how the world got this way, introducing Khyber, who works behind the scenes to destabilize nations, and makes alliances with various super villains, eventually resulting in world war. Superman confronts Khyber, who throws Superman deep into the Earth's crust, causing a disastrous electromagnetic pulse, global earthquakes, tidal waves, thousands of volcanoes, and nuclear winter, killing billions. Khyber and his allies take over. Luthor, Jimmy, Lois, and several others have allied together in opposition, but are barely surviving themselves. Suddenly, another volcano erupts, and out comes Superman, years after being entombed in the crust. Back in the present, Jimmy cheers at this news, but Arion warns him that this Superman is about to make things much worse.
