Superman and Lois Lane's Super Son has arrived!
In new photos from "Crisis on Infinite Earths," the upcoming Arrowverse crossover, the new parents can be seen cradling their new bundle of joy. The baby wears a pale blue hat, indicating their child is a boy. The framing of the photo echoes the moment that Superman's own parents, Jor-El and Lara, sent him to Earth to save him from Krypton's destruction.
In "Elseworlds," last year's crossover, Lois revealed she was pregnant with Superman's child. The couple decided to move to Argo City, where Kryptonians do not have powers, to ride out the pregnancy in the safest way possible for Lois. Their child has not yet made their Arrowverse debut, but that will change in "Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part One."
In the comics, of course, Lois and Clark have a son named Jonathan Kent, who has inherited the Superboy moniker. Jon is a rather new character, having debuted in 2015's Convergence: Superman #2 by Dan Jurgens, but has risen in popularity in DC Rebirth titles like Super Sons.
This Super family will be the subject of their own series during the the 2020-21 TV season. The CW is developing Superman and Lois Lane, with Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch in the title roles. The series will follow "the world's most famous super hero and comics' most famous journalist deal with all the stress, pressures and complexities that come with being working parents in today's society."
"Crisis on Infinite Earths" begins Sunday, Dec. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Supergirl, then continues in Batwoman on Monday, Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. ET/PT and in The Flash on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. After the winter hiatus, the crossover will conclude on Tuesday, Jan. 14 in Arrow at 8 p.m. ET/PT and in DC's Legends of Tomorrow at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
