Elseworlds: Super Baby On The Way For Lois And Clark
December 13, 2018
The House of El lives! The Elseworlds crossover conclusion delivered the news a Super baby is on the way for Lois and Clark.
Introducing Lois Lane in this year’s Arrowverse crossover came with an unexpected twist in the Supergirl hour. Turns out Lois is pregnant. Yeah, you read right. Lois and Clark are expecting a half-Kryptonian child. We’re getting a Super baby added to the House of El.
We’re on board! Sure, the elder members died when Krypton exploded, but doesn’t mean it can’t include Jonathan Samuel Kent.
Surprise… or not. We only know Lois is pregnant, and the baby is half-Kryptonian. From what Lois and Clark implied, the baby’s conception happened on Argo. It’s the safest place for Lois as its away from a yellow sun. Since Clark is the child’s father, his genes overpower Lois’s human ones.
Can you imagine what Lois’s dad will say when he discovers his first grandchild is half alien? He will be beside himself when Clark and Lois announce their engagement. Oh, did I mention Clark proposed? Oops! I wonder what Lucy would say to getting Superman as a brother-in-law.
The reason I said “surprise… or not” is because we mightn’t get Jonathan Samuel Kent. The child Lois is carrying could become Jon Lane Kent who has a tragic backstory. He died when he was four and his parents went MIA to escape the grief. Though, I doubt the writers of Supergirl would take that route.
I’m sure there’ll be mentions of Lois, Clark, and the baby in episodes of Supergirl to come. Kara may visit them on Argo or they visit Kara in National City.
Supergirl returns for its Season 4 mid-Season premiere in January 2019.
