Background[edit | edit source]

To be added.

Bombing[edit | edit source]

Senator Finch began to make her opening remarks only to pause after noticing a jar placed next to her microphone. She turned the jar around to find "Granny's Peach Tea" written on the front of the jar.

As she quickly looked around the room, Superman followed her gaze to the chair reserved in Luthor's name. Suddenly, a bomb placed inside Keefe's wheelchair detonated, destroying the entire room and killing everyone inside except for Superman. 

Aftermath[edit | edit source]

Following the incident, Superman disappeared, blaming himself for what had transpired because he couldn't see the bomb. Lois Lane however began investigating it and found out the bomb was encased in lead, which is why Superman couldn't see it at all.
