Superman rams a giant asteroid on a collision course with Earth. The impact causes the asteroid to now orbit the planet. However, Superman is staggered as he returns to Earth. He manages to change back to Clark Kent (apparently a reflex action) but doesn't remember who he is. Meanwhile, the orbiting asteroid still presents hazards for Earth. Only Superman can place an explosive device that will demolish the asteroid -- and no one, including Clark, knows where Superman is.

When Superman returns to earth after diverting the asteroid, he lands and is disoriented. He doesn't know who he is. A car is coming and he runs behind a large boulder. He then appears a moment later as Clark Kent, clothing changed. Even though he has no idea who he is, he changes his identity and mysteriously has all of Clark Kent's clothing including hat waiting for him behind the boulder. See more
That's exactly what I meant before. It zoomed right past Venus and Mars didn't it? Just because a big thing runs wild and gallops all over the solar system doesn't mean it's going to hit us.
I know Jimmy, I know.
Still it does seem funny we can't see it anymore.
