Lois looked at Clark through the two-way observation mirror and then turned to Perry.

“How could this happen? He seemed so sane. What could make him think all of a sudden that he can fly or start fires with his eyes?”

“Aw, honey, I know it’s hard to grasp. But just put yourself in his shoes… All those years being different, having to hide it. It wasn’t his fault, but you know him -- he feels guilty for all sorts of things that are beyond his control. I guess it just ate away at him for so long. He probably feels he disappointed his parents. The mind’s a funny thing; it can make you believe things that just aren’t so. Why, it even made Elvis believe that godawful sandwich tasted good.”

“Yeah, I guess you’re right. It must be hard to be the only one on Earth without powers.”

The two silently contemplated their friend’s situation as they flew through the open window and back to the Daily Planet.
