- "How was he a threat?!"
- "Strange visitor from another planet comes to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men? 'Clark.' Clark always said yes to anyone with a badge. Or a flag. He gave them too much power."
- —Kate Kane and Bruce Wayne[src]
Long before the Anti-Monitor Crisis, Superman arrived on Earth under the guise of a civilian. Batman saw him as a man full of power and extraordinary abilities, unlike a mortal, and as a danger to the world. He went head-on against the Man of Steel and killed him. Superman managed to severely wound Bruce's body in the process.
Bruce Wayne collected Clark's glasses as a trophy, keeping them in a cabinet. When Kate Kane of Earth-1 and Kara Danvers of Earth-38 arrived at his mansion, Kara discovered the glasses and realized Bruce's true persona. When Bruce attempted to murder Kara for the same reason he murdered Clark, Kate fought and accidentally killed him, avenging Clark and saving Kara in the process.
Behind the scenes
- This version of Clark/Superman is implied to share similarities with The Dark Knight Returns comic, in that he always said yes to anyone with a badge or flag. This is referenced by Bruce's dialogue towards Supergirl.
