Just fyi… “deadbeat dad” is a term that identifies a male who has knowingly fathered a child and refuses to provide parental support (typically financial).

SR employs the (fairly familiar) Who’s Your Daddy? trope - wherein a character discovers that he has fathered a child (usually years ago). So no “deadbeat” applies.

Did Lois shack up with Richard right after the events of Superman 2? This is meant to be a sequel? And this follows the continuity of the theatrical Superman 2, the one where Supes gives the "forget me" kiss. Well, when Lois finds out her kid is super powerful, wouldn't the first thought be "When the HELL did I sleep with Superman?!! DID HE RAPE ME!"
If you ignore SII, then these questions don't arise.
