Walking with Superman: Day 140
Superman has an unexpected visitor during his trip to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, when the daring Dreamer accosts him in the Atlantean Artifacts exhibit. She tells him about an ominous vision she's had--evil forces rising out of the distant past, breaking free of their prisons, uniting to conquer the Earth, and waging a cataclysmic battle with Superman at the center. She believes that their only hope is to prevent the ancient evil from ever freeing itself and invading the present. Superman suspects that they'll require some magical assistance to ward off the danger, but he's scarcely sent the word to Oracle when a nearby Atlantean artifact begins to glow and tremble with arcane power, apparently responding to their presence. From out of the glowing rune-embossed urn, imprisoned since the Obsidian Age, emerges the Hebrew warrior called the Anointed One! Superman and Dreamer stand against the archaic alien, but can they keep the prophecy from coming true?
