** Superman is affected by Kryptonite-induced Fear Toxin, which makes him envision Lois as Doomsday. He grapples her, and flies her out into the upper atmosphere whilst Batman ''desperately'' tries to get through to him. The moment he does manage to tell Superman that he's with Lois and not Doomsday, it's too late -- by the time the effects of the Toxin have worn off, Superman is ''in space'', seeing Lois's dead body floating away from him. And to make things worse, Joker [[DeadManSwitch rigged a nuclear bomb to her heartbeat]], which detonates and blows up Metropolis. What really sells it, is when Superman ''hears the heartbeat of Lois and their unborn child stop'' just as the Toxin wears off. The narration that accompanies it is ''heartbreaking''.
