Superman & Lois mid-season premiere preview

Superman and Lois Lane went back to Smallville after Martha Kent died. When the evil Morgan Edge bought the Daily Planet and fired Clark Kent, it made the move make more sense.

They moved back to Clark’s childhood farm and began to raise their kids there.

This was tough for both children. Jonathan was a football star in Metropolis, and Jordan never seemed to fit in. They also had no idea their dad was Superman.

When Clark and Lois reveal the secret to their sons, it didn’t go over well. However, things quickly changed when Jordan developed superpowers like his dad.

The two boys then became popular members of the football team, with Jordan taking the new spot as the golden child, after Jonathan lived that life in Metropolis.

Meanwhile, Lois Lane’s dad – General Sam Lane – was not happy in the move because he worried Superman leaving Metropolis would cause crime levels to increase.

They slightly proved this true when an alternate Earth version of Lex Luthor arrived and wanted to take out Superman, who he thought would destroy this Earth.

Lois Lane hasn’t stopped her work as an investigative journalist, now focusing her attention on exposing Morgan Edge’s corrupt dealings.

This leads into the second major villain, as Edge has plans to create a Kryptonian Army using the X-Kryptonite buried under Smallville.

Superman & Lois return to The CW on May 19 at 9/8c.
