Malicious reporter Linda Lake, who can transform herself into water, tries to get Clark in her power by threatening to expose his Superman identity. Clark decides instead to reveal himself as the blue-and-red-caped hero, against Chloe's advice. Initially Metropolis hails the superhero, but soon excessive expectations and governmental suspicion of any alien cause uncontrollable problems. Linda manages to feed the public malicious lies about the Kryptonian as cause of all meteor freaks misery. It gets so bad Clark decides to undo his outing, even if that requires using the Legion's ring to travel back in time. That also means he isn't informed of Davis Bloome's Kryptonian identity after he stops taking paranoia pills and attacks Chloe. Written by
