Superman & Lois Plot: What is it About?
The series will follow the titular power couple from the pages of DC Comics as they embark on a brand new adventure and by far the most significant challenge they have faced – parenthood! Clark and Lois are both heroes in their own right. Clark is secretly the costumed superhero Superman AKA The Man of Steel, who fights to protect the world, and Lois strives to bring the right kind of change through her journalism.
Along with their two sons, the couple relocates to Smallville, Kansas, where Clark spends some time re-integrating into his hometown and getting reacquainted with old friends. Their kids, Jonathan and Jordan, are initially unaware of their father’s secret identity, but after the family relocates to Smallville, Clark reveals the truth to them. The kids struggle to cope with the legacy of their father and to settle into their new surroundings.
Elsewhere, a mysterious stranger is plotting a nefarious plan; to convince the world that it no longer needs Superman. The series explores the vulnerabilities of the ever-popular superhero, Superman, through the lenses (or should we say glasses?) of parenthood and how his relationship with Lois evolves in this new phase of their lives.
