    The Pendant[edit | hide]

    The Thing in the Mines[edit | hide]

    Kal-El goes to UE-43

    For days, Kal-El was trapped in the Shuster Mines of the new universe, and his attempts to escape caused earthquakes in Smallville.[7] This drew the attention of AmerTek, who sent several employees into the mines to investigate, all of whom were killed by Kal-El.[8]

    Kal-El later escaped the mines and fought Superman and Steel, during which time he asked them to "leave him alone" backwards. He and Superman then began to experience painful visions, which caused Kal-El to fly away to the Fortress of Solitude. He then removed his armor to reveal his mirrored suit, before saying the word "home" backwards.[9]

    Bizarre[edit | hide]

    Kal-El fights the Supermen

    Some time later, Kal-El flew to the Kent Farm, where he briefly fought Superman and Irons before fleeing to Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia. Once there, he fought the Supermen of America, killing two members before Superman arrived. The pair then fought each other until Irons arrived and attempted to help to use his hammer. However, this resulted in him being struck hard enough to be hospitalized before Kal-El fled.[1]

    Attacking Inverse Society[edit | hide]

    Kal-El duels with Superman

    Despite his pendant taken by Tag Harris, Kal-El continued his mission to save his doppelgänger's world, starting with killing the members of Inverse Society. After the murder of Kit Faulkner, Kal-El turned to attack the leader of the group, Ally Allston. Unfortunately, Lois Lane called for the help of Superman. Kal-El and Superman dueled once more, while the latter did not understand his reversed speeches. Kal-El was eventually knocked unconscious and brought to the fortress.[10]

    Later that day, Superman returned to interrogate Kal-El, with the Lara Lor-Van A.I. translating Kal-El's reversed speeches. Kal-El claimed that he was needed to kill Ally Allston in order to save both his and Superman's world.[10]

    Death[edit | hide]

    Anderson attacks the fortress

    While Kal-El and Superman no longer fight each other, Mitch Anderson remained vengeful over the death of two soldiers of his team. Anderson then followed Superman and Tal-Rho to the fortress and attacked them with X-Kryptonite. Unfortunately, Superman and Tal-Rho were unable to stop a furious Anderson. The Lor-Van A.I. then released Kal-El from his forcefield, allowing him to combat Anderson. Anderson attempted to shoot him with Green Kryptonite, not knowing inverse Kryptonians do not react to the mineral as normal Kryptonians. Anderson eventually realized X-Kryptonite would be harmful to inverse Kryptonians, weakening him and snapping his neck.[3]
