Walking with Superman: Day 125
A nuclear accident has given Superman a host of new powers, but the side effects are killer! If Superman doesn't find a way to stop his body from emitting deadly amounts of radiation, his heroic career--and life as he knows it--will be over! He's transported carefully to the S.T.A.R. Labs facility in Pittsburgh, PA, where they've brought in an expert on Kryptonian physiology and exotic energy: the Eradicator! His diagnosis is dire; the only way to cure Kal-El's condition is to radically reboot his solar cells. Unfortunately, that means intense exposure to Kryptonite followed by direct, unfiltered sunlight, making this one of very few medical treatments which requires sending the patient in a rocket toward the sun! But when Superman's radiation damages the guidance system, it begins to looks like his exposure to the sun will be a lot more direct!
