Aftermath[]

After the explosion, many paramedics and officers helped treat those who were injured. Superman stayed to help, carrying an injured woman to safety, but was swelled with guilt and self doubt after seeing dozens of dead bodies and injured civilians, throwing a glance of sorrow and regret at Lois before launching into the air. To make matters worse, Superman was partially blamed for the incident and many began to believe if Superman had something to do with the bombing itself. Unbeknownst to all, it was all part of Luthor's plans to frame and discredit Superman to damage his reputation.[1]

Trivia[]

  • According to a news banner, 35 people were killed in the explosion while dozens more were injured.
