Synopsis for "The Day of the Super-Comet"

Part of the untitled "Dominus Effect" storyline, this is the second of three stories with Superman cast into the Silver Age reality, which starts off with Superman fighting Brainiac inside his fortress with Dan Turpin and Maggie Sawyer in on the action, when the Man of Steel is alerted to the presence of a comet heading straight towards Earth. After seeing Superman safely destroy the comet, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olson, and Maggie along with some others began to wish they had the same powers Superman has. The next day, Clark discovers that all the residents in Metropolis do have super powers just like his -- everyone, that is, except for Dan Turpin, who never wished to have any super powers -- and this was proven when a couple of would-be bank robbers were instantly stopped just by citizens revealing their caped identities to them. However, at a public meeting the mayor held with the citizens of Metropolis, Metallo appears on the scene and weakens everybody with the radiation of his Kryptonite heart. Dan Turpin, however, was unaffected and instantly depowers Metallo. Superman gets Mxyzptlk to reveal himself as the culprit behind giving everybody super powers and he soon disappears back to his home dimension, restoring everybody back to normal. After presenting Dan Turpin as a true "superhero" to the public, a little white-haired girl tries to warn Superman that everything is not right before she vanishes, and he notices from a nearby clock that the time is 2:22.



Notes

  • Part of Dominus Effect
  • Despite the triangle numbering the setting and story carries over into the next issue of this series.

Trivia

  • The Adventures Of Superman title logo used on the cover page of this story has the bevel-lettered SUPERMAN logo used in the Silver Age instead of the modern smooth-curved version which debuted in Superman #386.
  • Some non-Silver Age references appear in the story such as Lois Lane talking about Jimmy Olsen downloading digital photos and Dan Turpin speaking about Metallo's backup power source being like his VCR.
