When the Sunlight lastly broadens to shed Planet to a crisp - as researchers anticipate it will certainly billions of years from currently - Superman exists. Not to press the earth to security, or to grieve the loss of one more world he called house. He"s there to see his moms and dads" tomb as he has actually been for, according to him, 5 billion years.
