Sequel to: Beyond the Sun. Life was never an easy feint, it would be asking too much for life to be easy now. Establishing himself as a resident hero of Metropolis, plus reporter by day; how could life possibly get any more hectic? Like before Zod's failed invasion was bad enough, honestly, Clark didn't think he was asking for too much for life to calm down now. Sadly, as ever, life had other ideas. Gotham's resident bat's kicking up a fuss and hitting headlines in all manner of ways, it clearly wouldn't take long before he set his sights firmly in Clark's direction; not that he was wholly wishing to fight Batman, but if that's what it took for him to back off, then so be it. If that wasn't enough, Bruce Wayne and his sudden injection into his and Annie's life proves to be more harmful than good, but then this is Bruce Wayne, what else could anyone expect? It is not exactly a shock when it's learned that himself and Batman are one and the same. Competing companies, madmen creating monsters from Kryptonian's, a God from space, a child and a possible wedding. It was definitely safe to say that life was only just starting to get a bit hectic.
