Six mois après la mort de Superman après avoir vaincu Doomsday, quatre nouvelles versions du héros apparaissent: Superboy, Steel, Cyborg, Superman et Eradicator. Chacun d'entre eux est différent dans sa personnalité et son style de combat du crime par rapport à Superman, laissant le monde entier se demander lequel est le vrai Superman. Lois Lane, encore sous le choc de la mort de Clark, décide de mener une enquête. Lex Luthor tient une conférence de presse présentant Superboy comme le véritable Superman, sponsorisé et financé par LexCorp. Lois assiste à la conférence avec Steel et se faufile dans l'un des laboratoires de LexCorp. Là, Lois apprend du scientifique Dabney Donovan que Superboy est un clone de Superman. Soudainement, la conférence est attaquée par l'éradicateur, qui cherche à "éradiquer" Luthor. Superboy et plus tard Steel tentent de l'arrêter, mais sont vaincus jusqu'à l'arrivée à temps de Cyborg Superman, qui se bat et chasse Eradicator. Beaucoup le voient comme le vrai Superman, provoquant la colère de Luthor. Lois écrit un exposé révélant que Superboy est un clone et demande si tous les Supermen sont des faux. Cela conduit à une rencontre entre elle et Cyborg Superman, lui disant qu'elle sait qu'il n'est pas le Superman qu'elle a connu et aimé.
