But an even bigger change is coming. A new company called Hordr has sprung up, and its business is secrets. If you have one that you want to keep hidden, Hordr can control you--and no one has a bigger secret than Clark Kent. Now, Hordr is threatening to expose Clark's alter ego unless he does everything they command. Will Superman play into the hands of blackmailers to keep his loved ones out of danger?
