Special Anniversary Issue. Wonder Woman is only featured in the first story.

Synopsis

In the midst of a Khund invasion, the city of Metropolis celebrates “Superman Day”, a day of recognition for all the things Superman has done for the city. However, the Man of Tomorrow doesn’t seem too enthusiastic about the festivities.

After destroying a few Khundian warships, Lois and Jon try to get Clark to come to a celebratory panel, which he does hesitantly.

The presentation begins with a group of guests recounting their experiences of when Superman saved them from various dangers. Meanwhile, Clark feels uneasy, worried about the Khunds sending out a larger force. As he uses his telescopic vision to check, though, he finds nothing but space.

During the presentation, Lois is continually bombarded with calls from her boss, Perry White, but when he appears on stage to speak at the panel, Superman realises that something is awry. He flies off, but is stopped by none other than Wonder Woman, who reveals the truth: the Khunds indeed attempted a large-scale invasion, but the world’s heroes have already taken care of it. Diana apologetically admits Martian Manhunter influenced Superman telepathically so he didn’t notice anything, and Lois had been on the phone with Batman the entire time. Diana explains his family and friends did this because they wanted him to enjoy his day. After all, he also influenced all of them.

As Superman returns to the presentation, he sees the Super and Bat-Families, the Justice League, the Titans, the Earth’s Green Lanterns… all the heroes, and even villains like Harley Quinn and Deathstroke gathered in celebration of him.
