This Superman feature… I’m sitting here, and since we’re at this nice round-numbered issue, it hits me that today’s piece is comprised of the 59th and 60th pages of this story. Dassa lotta pages… especially when stuff only happened on around eight of em!
Let’s do it!
As the Consortium approaches, Clark Kent is walked down the winding tunnels where the Elders of the Fellowship have sought refuge. He learns that all who remain of the Fellowship were survivors of that attack we witnessed via Bob Galt’s super-projection power all them weeks back.
Clark looks on while these goofs kumbaya in Superman’s name, and appear to exhibit some actual super-powers. Realizing that this… really shouldn’t be a thing, he decides to let his super-senses take in the surroundings. He finds that there’s an odd radiation in the air… and when he attempts to find out its point of origin, he deduces that there isn’t one! He now knows there’s far more than meets the eye to this Fellowship. They are being controlled by someone, or something very dangerous.
Man, we’re so close… this is almost starting to feel like there’s an actual story to follow! That said though, there still isn’t all that much to say.
All we’ve got is that there’s more than meets the eye about the Fellowship, and possibly, the Consortium as well. Even if it’s not Superman, looks like there is going to be some sort of “higher power” involved. The question is: Who or what could it be?
Tomorrow: Back on the train!
