Synopsis for "What Goes Up... Can't Come Down"

The Doom Patrol survive their encounter with the Gravity Lord, and Supergirl manages to save the people endangered by the Gravitron Man. But both villains are motivated by a family feud that stretches back over two centuries, when an English lord named Tain disowned his son for American sympathies during the Revolution. That son went to America, changed his name to Clement, and became father to a line of multi-millionaires. The Tains did not do so well, and suffered poverty. Now both Tain and Clement have developed anti-gravity control simultaneously, and attack each other, though their combined gravitic force may destroy the Earth...just as the disembodied intelligence plans. When Supergirl confronts them over the Atlantic, they break off their battle and attack her in unison.

Notes

  • "My Father...Superman" is not an Imaginary Story, but the computer simulation in the story is very similar in function to an Imaginary Story, so this story is often considered an "honorary" Imaginary Story.
