What if the 'real" soul of kal somehow was able to return to this corpse. and before moving on, took on darkseid as final act?

I can't see that happening. It does raise the interesting question though as to what a soul even is in comics - does Android-Lois have one or is she really just a robot programmed with Lois memories?
Red Tornado-Lois is a really interesting concept from DC as she harks back to traditional comics of yesteryear with the Sattelite era JLA and their Red Tornado, or The Vision and Machine Man over at Marvel. Back then comics were aimed at teens and we accepted these characters at face value, as living beings. At some point there was a shift in comics and the line between emotional attachment to a character like this was erased and they were rapidly phased out, reduced to being unequivocally just robots and not living things. Red Tornado was destroyed, Jocasta too, The Vision was erased and disassembled, Machine Man was mothballed along with The Metal Men, and comics seemed to reject the concept of artificial life...
So the arrival of Lois Lane as The Red Tornado intrigues me as it is a deliberate attempt to recapture that element of Androids as living beings, s with Data in Star Trek there is a lot of story to be had in exploring such a character. She is a contributing factor in the book that makes it feel very reminiscent of old fashioned comicbooks of yesterday and the more innocent and earnest approach to the superhero as... well, hero!
