Superman: End of the Century (2000) OGN HC - Comic Book DB
On the eve of the new millennium, someone is committing arson in Metropolis -- and the target of her fiery rage is Lex Luthor! And when the Contessa del Portenza shows up on Luthor's doorstep demanding that he turn over their infant daughter, Luthor recognizes a threat that even he must take seriously.
What Luthor doesn't know is that the Contessa has another child: like herself, an immortal, but one who sees humanity as insects to be crushed at whim. And when Luthor's actions reawaken this beast, only Superman stands a change of stopping his deadly rampage.
Alex Jay designed the logo and cover lettering.
This story has two running plots - one set at the end of 1999 and one spanning the 1800s. Massimo del Portenza and Paolo Priora appear only in the past. Erica & Luca de Portenza and Stefano Priora appear in both plots.
