It’s Superman Day… rejoice?

Clark Kent is given a short tour of the Fellowship’s facilities, and promised that if he only give himself over to Superman-Worship, he’d be granted with the same sort of phenomenal powers as they.

Later, while retired in some guest room, CK uses his x-ray vision to follow the cosmic beam that he believes has endowed the Fellowshippers their gimmicks.  As he does so, he notices that there is a small army heading directly for them!  He suits up, and heads out.

In the middle of the California desert, he confronts the tanks and jets.  They refer to him as a “demon”, and blast the bejeezus out of him!

Well, I can’t say there wasn’t any action here!  While this is still moving at a rather glacial pace, I’m just happy it’s moving at all.  Hopefully, now that the initial confrontation is out of the way, things will begin happening at a quicker clip!

Unfortunately for today’s piece, there still isn’t all that much to say.  We learned that it was cosmic beams causing the Fellowship to have their powers… so, that wasn’t exactly new information.  It is leading somewhere interesting, though… of that, I can assure you.  I just hope I manage to stay awake long enough to get there!

Tomorrow: Can we finally get some Nightwing in our Nightwing story?  Err, do you really want me to answer that?
