In this darkly take on a Christmas Carol/It's a Wonderful Life, Clark begins to wonder with Lana still comatose and Kara held captive in the past by Braniac, if things would be better if he never arrived on Earth.

I know, and I owe my life to the both of you, but this country...
What do you know about protecting this country? You are an alien. I'm the President of the United States. By striking the enemy first, I am ...
