Hello all, this is my first post on CBR and I was hoping for a little bit of help. A few years ago I was in a Library and I came across a Superman comic that I had never seen before, it stuck with me, so much so that I went back several times to try and find it again but all my trips back to that library have come up empty as has all attempts to use google lol. I don't have the best memory but here are the details I remember from that issue:
-I don't believe the villain in the issue was one of the usual members of Superman's rogue gallery (Toyman, Lex, etc.) but I could be wrong.
-The villain had defeated Superman in Metropolis and the issue featured a time skip
-The villain had some kind of armored battle suit
-It showed an older Lois and Jimmy and reformed Lex.
-Jimmy was chronicling what had happened after Superman had been beaten.
-Superman had been trapped under the Earth's crust or in a volcano and over a period of time (years) had adapted to absorbing that as energy to fuel his abilities.
-I remember Lois commenting on how painful such an exsistence must have been for Superman.
I know it's not much to go on but if you guys could be of any help with either the name of the villain or an issue number/ arc name, anyything that might point me in the right direction and I would be forever grateful.
