Lois says that she thinks she and Clark should have a baby. As if on cue, a wail comes from the bedroom, and there they find a baby girl in the arms of Mister Mxyptlk, who has granted their wish in the form of Lara Lane-Kent. He shows them how this child could grow up, adored by Superman's fellow heroes and eventually growing into her heroic legacy. He shows them a possible future Luthor as well.

He and the baby disappear, but he promises to be back...
