Walking with Superman: Day 194
Superman arrives in Houston, TX, where police are in a tense standoff at NASA's Johnson Space Center. Clifton Lacey--a former NASA engineer, long thought dead--is holding the center's scientists hostage with the ultraviolet death-ray he developed as the villainous Solaris! Unless the authorities capitulate to his impossible demands, he plans to irradiate everyone in the facility until they die quick, gruesome deaths! And lest the police think they can just send in the Man of Steel, Lacey claims to have adapted his weapon with red sun frequencies as well, making it as deadly to Kryptonians as it is to humans. Defeating this deadly doctor and saving the scientists is going to take every ounce of Superman's cunning and skill...but will they be enough?
