Clark Kent and Lois Lane meet in Metropolis working for the Daily Planet. Eventually, they marry and raise their twin sons, Jonathan and Jordan; all while Clark fights crime as the superhero Superman. In the present day, Superman prevents a nuclear meltdown. The following day, Clark loses his job and his mother Martha passes away in Smallville. At her funeral, the Kents reunite with Lana Lang, her husband Kyle Cushing, and their two daughters, Sarah and Sophie. Jordan and Jonathan suffer no injuries after an accident in the barn. Clark learns from Lois’ father, General Sam Lane, that the meltdowns are caused by an unknown figure, who knows Superman’s Kryptonian identity “Kal-El”. Lana reveals to Clark and Lois that Martha had a reverse mortgage on the farm, which they must either pay back or sell the property. Jordan and Jonathan discover the Kryptonian pod. They confront their parents, who confirm that Clark is Superman, which angers the boys. Superman confronts the stranger at another nuclear meltdown. Meanwhile, Jonathan and Jordan attend a bonfire with Sarah. Jordan kisses Sarah, which provokes her boyfriend and a fight breaks out; in the melee, Jordan’s heat vision ability manifests to save his brother. The stranger stabs Superman with Kryptonite. Elsewhere, the stranger is revealed to be “Captain Luthor”.

In Salem 1693, Agatha is held on trial by a coven of witches led by her mother Evanora for practicing dark magic. As they attempt to kill her, she drains their life forces. In the present, Agatha demands to know how Wanda is controlling Westview, threatening her with her children’s lives. She forces Wanda to relive key moments of her life, during which she watched numerous sitcoms to keep herself going. Agatha learns Wanda has had magical abilities since birth, which were amplified when she came in contact with the Mind Stone. Additionally, Wanda visited S.W.O.R.D. to recover Vision’s body, but Director Hayward refuses to let her bury him. Unable to feel any life in Vision, she leaves and drives to a lot in Westview that Vision had bought for her so they could live there together. In a fit of grief, she creates a house on the lot, manifests a new version of Vision, and extends the Hex across the entire town. Agatha concludes that Wanda possesses a legendary form of magic and deems her the “Scarlet Witch”. In a mid-credits scene, Hayward reactivates the original Vision’s reassembled corpse.
