After Superman arrested Amajagh, Kahina Ziri was interviewed by MN8 as a witness to Superman's murderous rampage that killed her parents in the area. Of course, it was later revealed that her parents were alive and well, but this interview helped spark hatred for Superman among many.[3]

"The Superman Question" is a highly debated topic on Superman and how he should be viewed by the world. Glen Woodburn is a vocal detractor of Superman's, who was hosted on at least one occasion by Metropolis News 8 on the matter.[3]

After the bombing of the United States Capitol, Metropolis News 8 covered the local aspects of the story due to Wallace Keefe, the suspected culprit, being a Metropolis citizen. The story included speculation that Superman was involved in the incident, largely due to his inability to prevent the blast despite being mere feet away, in combination with the fact that the hearing was intended to give control of his actions to the people.[3]

Unusual Activity at Heroes Park

When Lex Luthor activated Scout Ship 0344's genesis chamber to create the desecration without name, power surged, drawing the attention of the local news. They sent a reporter to the scene, where she continued reporting on the incident until a blast of energy from the beast wiped out their ability to continue. Anderson Cooper then noted that they had lost contact and that they were unsure of what had just occurred.[3]
