||Tim Crane interviews Lois Elliot -- the former Lois Lane -- about the final days of Superman on the tenth anniversary of his disappearance. Lois relates how Bizarro suddenly became murderous before taking his own life with blue kryptonite, then the Toyman and the Prankster attacked Superman revealing his secret identity as Clark Kent, and finally a group of Metallos attacked the Daily Planet. In response, Superman took his closest friends to the Fortress of Solitude for protection. Meanwhile, Brainiac took over Luthor's body and recruited the Kryptonite Man, while the Legion of Super-Heroes -- accompanied by Supergirl -- visited Superman and presented him with a statuette.
