Who: Superman and Lois, probably NPC's What: After Superman defeats Apocalypse here When: Later tonight Warnings: None I can think of
The televisions in the newsroom were tuned to every imaginable network still broadcasting. Most of them were airing the same reports and warnings about what areas in the world had taken the most damage and where to stay away from. Lois glanced up every minute or two to look for for news on Superman. She knew the phantom zone projector was completed, she knew Superman was looking for Apocalypse, and she knew it was happening soon.
And then a familiar voice coming off one of the televisions caught her ear. She jumped out of her seat and nearly ran to the right television that was airing an international station. There was Superman, delivering and receiving blows with Apocalypse in a ferocious battle. She was joined by co-workers as every television was switched to the same station and they stood and watched, holding their breaths. Silence filled the newsroom as everyone tensed up.
Lois knew from years of watching him that Superman was beginning to tire. But she knew he could do it, he had to. He wouldn't let up. They watched as Superman activated some sort of field, which slowly trapped the mutant, then the reporter announced that Superman had defeated Apocalypse. Early cheers that went up around the newsroom were cut short when everyone watched in horror as Superman was hit by the beam and fell into the sea.
Lois was already on her way out the door as Superman hit the water, heading for the portkey to take her to New York. Her heart was thundering in her chest. She wouldn't rest until they found Superman. She couldn't lose him, not here, not again. Why did she have to be so far away?
It seemed to take forever to get to New York, and even longer to get to the shoreline where crowds had gathered to watch the final battle. From what people were saying, Superman hadn't been seen yet. Lois fought her way through the crowd, muttering excuses and calling out Superman's name. She'd join the search effort, she'd get on one of those news helicopters or a search plane or a boat until he was found. Lois fought her way amongst the heavy crowd at the shoreline, headed towards a Coast Guard vehicle at a small pier. "Excuse me, sir? Sir!" she called to an officer.
