A dark god, released by the destruction of the planet Krypton, finds her way to Earth to extinguish the "last flame" of Krypton's fire. Blanketing the whole of the Earth in the snows of a new Ice Age--her mythological power--she intends to bring the last son of Krypton to the fore. When she discovers he bears a similar "beauty" to Rao--originator of the house of El and another god of Krypton whom she intended to trap in marriage--she changes her plans. Instead of killing Superman, she now intends to wed him.
However, as she's a stranger to this part of the galaxy, she's at a disadvantage when facing the things that make a Superman out of Kal El. Sadly, she underestimates the love of Lois Lane, the hatred of Lex Luthor and the power of a yellow sun. In-continuity, but somewhat timeless. You'd be hard-pressed to put this story in a precise point on Superman's chronology--although you can say it happens after the wedding of Clark and Lois, after the current Superman's decisive 20th century battle with the Phantom Zone criminals, and before Lex Luthor becomes President. It also definitively happens before Superman (1987 series) #166.
Painted exteriors and interiors by the Hildebrandt brothers. Actually a squarebound volume.
