Approximately six weeks of Clark Kent's global travels prior to becoming Superman are explored in this slim volume.

Seeing a newscast of the death of the Bhutranese leader, Clark remembers how important she once was to him. From their first meeting in Paris to their parting in her home country of Bhutran, we see here how the death of her father, a not-so-thinly-disguised metaphor for the Dalai Lama, helped the two young lovers realize their separate destinies of leadership.

This story could be seen to contradict events described in Birthright, or it could be seen to amplify them. Fact is, there's probably room enough in the life of pre-Superman Clark Kent for both stories to rest comfortably next to each other.

Either way the story reads as a thinly-veiled criticism of Chinese policy towards the Himalayan kingdoms of Tibet (and Bhutan).

Clark Kent, as Superman, and the Kobra Cult appear only in the 6-page framing sequence.
Batman appears only as Bruce Wayne.
