NO ! We just make sure Lois Lane is on vacation out there for the entire
period. If the quake actually occurs, Superman will:

1. Put the fault back in place
2. Rescue the children in the school bus teetering over the side of the
G.G. Bridge
3. Fill the valley with bolders so the flood from the broken damn will
not wipe out the town
4. Fly around the earth faster than the speed of light and cause the
quake to not occur in the first place
