Peterson Air Force Base is a United States Air Force base located at Colorado Springs.


NASA Mission Control picked up an Alien originating from Ellesmere Island, Canada.

Shortly after finding the signal to be a large ship which flew away, a cover up operation began. A short while after this discovery, a large ship appeared in a lunar orbit preparing to come to Earth before a message was transmitted to every electronic device on the planet from General Zod demanding the handing over of Kal-El.

Kal-El surrenders to the people of Earth at the Air Force Base.

Kal-El surrended at Peterson Air Base only to speak with Lois Lane who must be freed. Both were put in an interrogation room observed by General Swanwick, Colonel Hardy and Emil Hamilton where Kal-El told them that he wasn't their enemy.

They met with Sub-Commander Faora-Ul on the runway, where Kal-El handed himself over, and Faora requested Lois come as well which she did.

After 2 smaller ships were tracked coming from the ship in orbit, Swanwick deployed a task force to intercept led by Hardy resulting in the Battle of Smallville where Kal-El earned the trust of Hardy.

Kal-El, now "Superman", departs from the base, determined to destroy the World Engine.

Mission Control then tracked the ship breaking into 2 parts one landing in the Indian Ocean, and the other hovering right over Metropolis, on the other side of the planet.

What was left of the military task force returned to the base where Kal-El and Lois returned with Kal-El's Spaceship and a way to stop Zod and his forces. Swanwick agreed with their plan and Hardy and Hamilton along with Lois boarded a C-17 with the ship to drop the ship as a bomb while Kal-El destroyed the World Engine.
